  • It's a baby boy for Charlotte Church and boyfriend Gavin Henson

    Charlotte Church has given birth to a baby boy, a brother for her 16-month-old daughter, Ruby.

    The 22-year-old singer chose to have her second child at home, with boyfriend Gavin Henson and two midwives by her side at a birthing pool, set up in the couple’s farmhouse pad in Wales.

    At ten days overdue, Church finally went into labour just after midnight on Saturday night.

    A spokesman for the pair said yesterday: ‘He was born just after midnight at her and Gavin’s home with Gavin in attendance at the birth.

    ‘They haven’t yet announced a name for their son, but we can confirm that he weighed in at 7lb 5oz and that mum and baby are both doing just fine.’

    A close friend of the couple revealed: ‘They are joking that it will be someone for Gavin to play rugby with.

    ‘They are very happy despite the long wait for the baby to arrive. All went well although it was a very long night.

    Charlotte is joking that she is one woman who is guaranteed to weigh less in January than she did at Christmas.’
