    Default Charlotte Church gives birth to baby girl

    Apparently yesterday was baby day, Salma Hayek and Charlotte Church on the same day.
    Singer and TV presenter Charlotte Church has given birth to a girl at her home in south Wales.
    It is believed the baby weighed just over 6lb and Church's rugby player boyfriend Gavin Henson was at her side for the birth.

    The little girl arrived some time on Thursday evening or Friday morning at the couple's home in St Brides Major, the Vale of Glamorgan.

    Church, 21, and Henson, 25, are said to be delighted at their new arrival.

    A spokeswoman for Church said: "A baby girl was born sometime on Thursday evening or possibly Friday morning.

    "Midwives were present at the home birth."

    Henson who was not included in Wales' World Cup squad after failing to recover from an injury on time did not travel with his Osprey's club side for their game against Ulster on Friday night.

    Press rumours

    Church confirmed she was expecting a baby on St David's Day - 1 March.

    In a message to her website, the star's management said she had been forced to reveal her pregnancy because of press rumours after she failed to celebrate her 21st birthday with alcohol.

    Church has been dating Henson for over two years and she began her meteoric career as a young classical singer when she was spotted on a radio talent competition.

    Her first album Voice of an Angel released in 1998 when she was just 12 made her a chart-topper and household name in both the UK and the US.

    As she grew older she made a successful transfer from classical which she said was "too restrictive" to pop, writing her own songs.

    Church became a TV presenter on Channel Four with her on late night chat show in 2006.

    She later turned down a new record contract to concentrate on the show.

    Henson, who has been capped 22 times for Wales, was ruled out of the 2007 Rugby World Cup after failing to recover from an Achilles injury in time for selection.

    It is believed the baby weighed just over 6lb
    I was expecting her to have a 8-10 lb. baby, judging by how big she had gotten.

    In a message to her website, the star's management said she had been forced to reveal her pregnancy because of press rumours after she failed to celebrate her 21st birthday with alcohol.
    Isn't it kind of sad that the fact that she did not celebrate with alcohol was such an anomaly? We just expect these young celebrities to get wasted as soon as they turn 21.

    Aww, congratulations to them!

    For some reason I thought she'd have a little boy.

    Congrats!! I hope she loses her baby weight fast and looks fabulous quickly as an "in your eye" to everyone who gave her shit for gaining weight while pregnant.
    I bet the baby is beautiful and I also hope she has the sense to kick the arsehole of a father to the curb if he doesn't man up!

    Congrats to both. I'd like to know the name that they gave her...

    Grumpy McGrumpy here, but it really riles me when I hear a mother has given birth to a baby girl. As opposed to what, a 3 year old? It should be taken as read she gave birth to a baby.....

    Oh, and congratulations Charlotte!

    Just read on Perez that the baby's name is Ruby Megan Henson. I actually like it, it's very normal by celeb standards, and I think Ruby is a pretty first name.

    I think Ruby is a pretty name also.
    When your daughter plays "House," she pretends to be an annoying doctor with a pill-addiction and a limp.
