Billie Piper to ask ex-husband Chris Evans to be baby’s godfather?
The former Doctor Who star and husband Laurence Fox are set to welcome their first child later this autumn and according to the Daily Mail, she’s told friends: “I want Chris to be part of the family. He would make a great godfather.”
A source close to the popstar turned actress that in return Billie might be asked to be godmother to Chris’ forthcoming child with wife Natasha Shishmanian: “Billie was one of the first people he confided in and she is delighted for him and Natasha.”
Billie and Chris married in a secret ceremony in Las Vegas in 2001, when she was 19 and he was 35. They were together for three years, largely staying out of the limelight, until they separated amicably in 2004 and their divorce was finalised last year. Chris married golfer Natasha in August last year while Billie married Laurence in a church ceremony on New Year’s Eve. Chris is said to have paid for and hosted Billie and Laurence’s wedding reception.
