DJ Chris Evans welcomes baby son

BBC Radio 2 host Chris Evans is celebrating the arrival of a baby son with golfer wife Natasha Shishmanian.

Evans said the boy, who has been named Noah, is "a little belter" and posted pictures of him on his blog.

The broadcaster added that he and his wife went out for dinner after she had gone into labour. Their baby was born at 0821 GMT on Tuesday morning.

The couple married last August. Evans, 42, already has a 21-year-old daughter from a previous relationship.

'I may love him'

Evans explained on his blog that their meal took place at an Italian restaurant soon after they had checked into hospital.

"When we told his front of house girls, all Italian, that Tash was actually almost having a baby, they loved it.

"I'm sure they were willing her to have it there and then.

"We laughed all the way through our dinner, what a way to kill the pain and suspense of labour - highly recommended."

The DJ, who was formerly married to actress Billie Piper, said that baby Noah was born with his umbilical cord wrapped twice around his neck.

"Mum did most of the pushing towards the end and he enjoyed a wee bit of help from a nice man called Pat."

"I think I may love him, I know Tash definitely does," wrote Evans.

When Piper gave birth to a baby son, Winston, in October, Evans was the first to reveal the news on the day of his arrival.
