Chris Evans’ wife Natasha Shishmanian is pregnant with twins following a successful IVF treatment in 2017.
The radio show host revealed the happy news during his Radio 2 show this morning (16 April).
The twins will be the star’s fourth and fifth children as 52-year-old Chris already shares sons Eli Alfred, five, and eight-year-old Noah Nicolas with Natasha, who he married in 2007.
Chris also has a daughter, 31-year-old Jade, from his previous relationship with Alison Ward.
The radio host candidly announced that his family was expanding during an interview with a fertility expert.

Chris asked the expert for advice with twins and the expert joked: ‘Get a bigger car.’ Chris then confirmed: ‘Mrs Evans is…she is now, yeah. Twins. Double trouble. Twin turbo.
‘We’ve known for a while, obviously. She’s definitely the mother, there’s no doubt about that.’
Chris then went on to speak about how he now sees twins everywhere, just like when you buy a new car and then suddenly feel like everyone has that car.
He said: ‘When you begin to be involved in the world of twins, suddenly twins are everywhere – twins are not as rare as you think.’
Chris told listeners back in April that he and Natasha was seeking fertility treatment. He told listeners: ‘Mrs Evans has gone into hospital this morning at 7am – she is the field and there’s a harvest taking place this morning.
‘I have to leave at 9:30 in the morning because I am required.’
Chris then clarified exactly what he meant as his co-host Rob Brydon seemed a little confused. He said: ‘It’s a nice thing, we’re having one last hurrah, one last attempt at a fourth ankle biter.’
Little did they know that they would be blessed with two!
After this morning’s announcement live on radio a message was shared on Radio’s official Twitter page.
The post read: ‘Watch out 2018, The Evans Twins are on the way… @chrisevans’.
Fans were quick to offer their congratulations in response to the news.
One wrote: ‘Congratulations @achrisevans’, while another joked: ‘Wow, congrats Chris and N, still plenty of lead in the old pencil then.’
Congratulations to Chris and Natasha!
