Congrats to songbird Charlotte Church, who gave birth to a healthy baby boy early Sunday morning. The father is Charlotte’s longtime boyfriend, rugby player Gavin Henson.
The couple already have a 13-month-old daughter named Ruby.
So Charlotte is now 22 and the mother of two small children. This blows my mind. I am sure Charlotte loves being a mother and is fantastic at it, but I still can’t remember to hide my shoes far enough away from my dog so that he doesn’t chew them to pieces. Honestly for the money I’ve lost on shoes that my dog’s destroyed I could probably just buy Charlotte’s baby on the black market.
But congrats to the happy couple and sophomore parents!

Charlotte Church, age 22, is expecting her second child with Gavin Henson. From her blog:
Charlotte Church and Gavin Henson are delighted to announce that they are expecting another baby. The couple are thrilled, as are their immediate families.
Meanwhile, Charlotte has confirmed that she will fulfill her commitment to Channel 4 to present the third series of The Charlotte Church Show in July and August of this year.
I like that she says their “immediate families” are thrilled. As though Gavin’s second cousin is really fucking pissed about the whole thing.
Regardless, congrats Charlotte and Gavin!

22-year-old new mom Charlotte Church cheers on her longtime boyfriend, Gavin Henson, at his rugby game over the weekend.
Charlotte gave birth to the couple’s daughter, Ruby Megan Henson, in late September of last year.
I just think she’s adorable.

You know how your boobs get big when you get pregnant? Charlotte Church, who already had some big boobs to begin with, has some serious pregnancy boobs going on.
She is currently pregnant with Gavin Henson‘s baby. The baby is due in September. I gotta say I love the Char and she really does look happy to be with child.

So you know those girls that get pregnant and use it as an excuse to get fat? I have a feeling that Charlotte Church is one of them. Here she is on a beach in Thailand letting it all out. She only is four months pregnant so the pooch is a hold out from her boozing days.
I actually love Charlotte Church. When I lived in London for a bit I realized that she is the tabloid equivalent to Britney Spears/Paris Hilton out there. She stopped selling music a while ago but her TV show is a hit and her wild behavior has always been tabloid fodder.
I hope that her hot boyfriend doesn’t leave her in the dust when she has this baby. She has been very vocal about her love for Gavin Henson. He is a dreamboat and hopefully he will allow Char to eat for two in peace. Short girls just can’t do that lean long pregnant look.

I’m so sick and tired of all of these young former child stars turned hard partying starlets getting pregnant when they are in their early 20s. Even if they feel really old and mature because they were making millions at the age that we all were attempting to take our SATs it doesn’t mean that they are ready to bring children into the world.
The latest victim to the “ya, kids will TOTALLY calm me down” curse is Charlotte Church. Remember that cute little Welsh girl who put out “Voice of an Angel.” Everyone fawned over her and as she grew older she became Britain’s version of Paris Hilton. Followed everywhere by the tabloids Charlotte also, after taking up heavy drinking and smoking, decided that she was going to have a pop career. Though she was a moderate success Charlotte took a break from singing to become a talk show host.
Charlotte has also been quite popular for his romantic escapades as well. After a few high profile relationships Charlotte began to date Gavin Henson, a popular professional Rugby player. After dating now for 2 years they have announced that they are having a baby together.
Charlotte is 21 and she and Gavin (or Gav as she calls him) are not married but they have come out saying that they are thrilled about their upcoming baby.
“For reasons of privacy, Charlotte has chosen not to comment on this matter, other than to confirm that she and her boyfriend, Gavin Henson, are delighted. In an ideal world, we would not have made this announcement so early in the pregnancy. However, due to recent speculation and persistent questions from the media about this most private of matters, Charlotte felt she had no choice other than to go public and she was keen to ensure that her fans had the opportunity to read the truth here first. Gav is the one, he is my fella and I want to have his children.”
The reason that the media was speculating about her pregnancy was not due to a “bump watch” but actually because at her recent birthday party she didn’t touch a drop of booze. Since she is quite the drinker this was such a shocking thing that the only obvious reason to her sobriety was pregnancy.
