For those who don’t know her, Charlotte Church (born Charlotte Maria Reed) is a 21-year-old Welsh pop singer and TV presenter who rose to international fame in childhood as a popular classical singer.

Now that little girl with that operatic voice is all grown up – and she’s having a baby!

Church has confirmed she is pregnant on her website, stating that she and her rugby star boyfriend Gavin Henson were “delighted”.

This girl is quite possibly the cutest export from across the Atlantic since Keeley Hazell. And not nearly as lewd. Anyway, a statement released by Charlotte Church’s management team says:

“Charlotte has asked us to bring you the news exclusively today that she is pregnant. For reasons of privacy, Charlotte has chosen not to comment on this matter, other than to confirm that she and Gavin 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.”

Huh? Charlotte has chosen not to comment on this matter? Isn’t the fact that she issued a statement saying she’s delighted commenting on the matter? That’s like Katherine Heigl getting pissed at the Grey’s Anatomy producers for commenting about her contract dispute when she’s the one who went public about it.

Well, sort of. Whatever. We’re thrilled for Charlotte. She is an awesome singer. She joins Keri Russell on the pregnancy train, along with Naomi Watts, Six Degrees star Bridget Moynahan and several others. Congratulations to Charlotte and Gavin.
