Charlotte Church has baby boy

The Welsh singer has delivered her second child.
Singer and TV presenter Charlotte Church has given birth to her second child - a baby boy.

The baby, who is as yet unnamed, was born just after midnight on Saturday weighing 7lb 5oz.

Charlotte's 26-year-old Welsh rugby player boyfriend, Gavin Henson, was at her side as she gave birth in a birthing pool at their farmhouse home in the Vale of Glamorgan.

The couple welcomed their first baby, Ruby, just 15 months ago.

Charlotte (22) is said to be a fan of home birth and has reportedly encouraged other mothers to do the same.

After delivering baby Ruby at home in September 2007, the singer spoke publicly about the benefits of the experience, saying that having the midwives at her house was "amazing".

A statement on Charlotte's website posted yesterday afternoon read: "Charlotte has literally just this minute phoned us to let us know that she gave birth to a little boy today.

"We would like to offer her and Gavin our congratulations and we are sure you will join us in sending Charlotte, Gavin, Ruby and her new baby brother our best wishes."

Earlier this year, Charlotte told chat show host Jonathan Ross that she would like to have a large family with four to six children before she is 32.
