Chris Evans Will Be With His Wife Till Hell Freezes
Chris Evans is a British television and radio presenter as well as a TV producer. He's not exactly the sort of man I would think of as saying about Christmas, "I got the unwrappable present - the one that says my wife and I are meant to be together till hell freezes." But he did.
Chris said of this - that it was because of a "serendipitous exchange." Others might call it synchronicity or coincidence or just pure chance. Whatever, here's what happened.
Chris, his wife and children have a favourite movie: Chitty Chitty Bang Bang. So when an original Chitty poster came up for auction, before Christmas, there he was with his wad of cash and put in the winning bid. The poster was then framed for Tash, his wife, as a gift from Santa.
As he handed the present over on the big day he described his wife as being in shock and almost in tears. He said, "How come? This was a good pressie but not that good, surely?"
It was then Tash's turn to give a present to Chris. As she did so she was beaming, almost teary. This is how Chris describes what happened next:
Until that moment, I had no idea that Chitty Chitty Bang Bang was written not as one complete volume but as three separate short stories. Chitty 1, Chitty 2 and Chitty 3. And here they were, perfectly stacked in front of the luckiest boy in the world. How totally spooky."
And that's why Chris Evans believes that he and his wife are meant to be together till hell freezes.
