Charlotte Church, 31, stunned fans at Birmingham Pride when she revealed that she’s expecting her third child. She placed her hand on her baby bump as she announced the happy news.
This will be the first child for the singer and her musician boyfriend Jonathan Powell, whom she has been dating for six years.
She already has children Ruby, nine, and Dexter, eight, with her ex-boyfriend Gavin Henson.
The singer had previously let slip the pregnancy news in an interview with the Guardian.
She said she felt “brilliant” about having another baby.
She was 21 when she had her first child. “It feels very different this time around.”
Charlotte and rugby player Gavin split in 2010 after five years together.
“Charlotte and I have to be amicable for the sake of the kids,” Gavin once said. “We did some mediation sessions as well, which has helped.
“It’s just important for the kids to see us getting on.”
Welsh Charlotte, who shot to fame at the age of 11 in 1997, has revealed that her children are tutored at home rather than in a school.
“I try not to talk about that too much,” said the singer, who is planning to release a new album next year.
“I try to keep them out of it a bit so that in future years when they’re on the internet they’re not like, ‘People say we’re weird because we were home-schooled.
Charlotte went to an all-girls school, but hated it. “I don’t think it’s right to separate boys and girls at that age,” she says. “You need to learn about each other.”
While she keeps her children out of the spotlight, Charlotte has been using her own profile to express her political views. She recently got into a Twitter spat with Piers Morgan.
She has said that online abuse is like “water off a duck’s back”.
