On Tonight The Voice Tom Jones told us something funny!
He said out of his six decades on of the best thing that has happend to him is knowing that Catherine Zeta-Jones gave birth while playing his What’s New Pussycat Song!
One of the hopefuls on the show who sang Cee Lo Green’s Forget You called Chris Grixti informed Tom that his mother backstage was a huge fan.
Despite not pressing his button, Tom said: ‘I thought it was good. Your breathing was good.’
Chris said back ’Can I just say My mum is a massive fan and I was probably conceived to one of your songs….’ before belting into a version of What’s New Pussycat.
Tom joked: ‘I think you sang that one better!’
He continued: ‘People have said that to me a few times, that children have been conceived while my music has been played.
‘But I think one of my biggest compliments that I had was when Catherine Zeta-Jones was giving birth to her first child, she had to have What’s New Pussycat on the radio, so as soon as she started to have to push, she said “Put Tom on and I’ll push”.’
Zeta-Jones and then-fiancé Michael Douglas welcomed their son Dylan in August 2000, before marrying in New York three months later.
They were joined by their daughter Carys in April 2003.
