CHRIS Evans and his wife Natasha Shishmanian have named their new baby twins Walt and Boo, The Sun can reveal, after unveiling the youngsters to the world.

The delighted parents flashed beaming smiles as Natasha cradled the twins – daughter Boo who was born at 5lbs 3oz and Walt weighing 5lbs 7oz — alongside their sons Noah, nine, and Eli, six, outside Fimley Park Hospital in Surrey.

Their safe arrival was announced on Evans’ Radio 2 Breakfast Show on Thursday by stand-in host Sara Cox – with the presenter teasing they had named them Ping and Pong.

Reading a statement from the 52-year-old dad-of-five, Sara said: “Ping and Pong arrived safe and well last night. Ping popped her head out at 22.10, Pong popped his head out 12 minutes later at 22 minutes past 10.

“Both healthy, both strong, happy and blessed, as was mum throughout.

“Infinite thanks to the amazing team at Frimley Park Hospital, amazing people, amazing professionals, helping dreams come true. Thank you.”

The babies came after Evans confirmed he and his wife were undergoing IVF treatment for “one last hurrah”.

Last week he said Ping and Pong was a “working title” for the babies, and that he was considering using them as middle names.

He told Janet Jackson, a guest on his show: “We call them Ping and Pong because they are the unborn. We have a working title.”

But he added: “It’s so cute I want to keep them as the names Ping and Pong.”

When singer Jackson asked whether he meant nicknames, Evans replied: “Or middle names.”

On yesterday’s show, Sara Cox also addressed her long-term future on the show – after The Sun revealed Zoe Ball is in advanced negotiations to take over from Evans when he moves to Virgin Radio early next year, despite Sara being an early favourite.

As she introduced the programme in the long-serving host’s absence on Thursday, she said: “Well here we are then, welcome along to the show.

“My name is Sara Cox, we never thought we would get here, this is your brand new Radio 2 Breakfast show and I just want to say I am so thrilled. I would like to thank my mum for her support...”

Pausing, she could then be heard speaking in the background saying: “Just one day? Oh.”

Evans and Shishmanian married in 2007. As well as the twins, they also have sons Noah, nine, and six-year-old Eli.

He is also dad to an elder daughter, Jade, 30.
