Chris Evans welcomes baby boy
Chris Evans and his wife have welcomed a new baby son.
The presenter and his golfer wife Natasha - who met when they were partners in a celebrity golf tournament and married in 2007 - are now the proud parents of Eli Alfred Michael Evans, who was born after a 52-minute labour today (Friday).
Eli joins the couple's first son, three-year-old Noah.
Chris, 46, missed his Radio 2 Breakfast Show this morning after his wife went into labour.
The One Show's Alex Jones had to stand in as main host of the programme, which was being broadcast from Hay-On-Wye.
The programme was on location from the town's literary festival to announce the winners of the programme's 500 Words story-writing competition for young listeners. Chris had already made it to Hay for the show, but headed home again for the birth.
In a message on Twitter the presenter said: "Can't wait to join you all out there. A nice quiet first day in and then I'll be right with you."
Speaking on the show this morning, Chris said Natasha was "great" and added that it had been a "very emotional morning".
Getting in the literary spirit, he told listeners after phoning in: "Once upon a time there was a silly radio DJ who went to Wales when his wife was four days overdue with their second child, hoping both mummy and baby might hang on until he returned.
"But of course he was completely wrong as usual and two hours after he arrived there on Thursday evening, he had to beat a hasty retreat to get back to London in time, which he did - just about - to witness the birth of 7lb 13oz Eli Alfred Michael Evans, born at 4.52am."
