Charlotte Church & Gavin Henson Split

Welsh singer Charlotte Church and Welsh rugby star Gavin Henson have called off their six-week engagement and separated, according to UK’s NOTW.

Charlotte, 24, and Gavin, 28, have two children, Ruby, 2, and Dexter, 1.

A source tells NOTW, “It is an incredibly sad state of affairs. Both Gavin and Charlotte are deeply distraught. But after a lot of soul-searching, they realized this is the best course of action for them and the children. It was a mutual decision.”

“To the outside world they were a golden couple,” the source continues. “The truth is, they had the same insecurities as anyone else. Charlotte is very headstrong. In the end, Gav found it too much. He was blaming her for his rugby career stalling. She hated him going out drinking with mates.”

Pictured below: Charlotte and Gavin poolside with their two little ones while vacationing in Dubai on February 15, just days before their engagement.

    A broken “six-week engagement” after two children ages one and two years of age. She was a young woman with so much promise and her money amassed from the age of 13 likely appealed to him a great deal. Although he would lay with her and produce two out-of-wedlock children, he likely never intended to marry her. What happened to this young woman and why would she ever place herself in this type of position? It’s time for all women to begin rediscovering self-respect by not bringing children into this world without a full-time committed father in the picture.

    I’m still shocked this is the same angelic girl who released “Voice of an Angel” (her first album). She should’ve stuck with classical music instead of going the trashy popstar route like so many have done (and to much greater success) before her.

    When both have a career and young children at such a young age, today most relationships like that don’t last. I like how in the article they say it is because she is do headstrong, which really means she is independent and has ideas of her own. Most young men don’t like that. She needs to find someone that is going to appreciate her and not act like a child.

    I see some presumably women finding this situation less than desirable. The truth is: men will never be the keepers of family values and marriage. Men are not genetically built to do this. Men do not carry babies for 9 months and then give birth followed by breast feeding. Sex for men will never have that much affect on our bodies. Only women can change this pattern of the dead beat man. That means only women have the power to make men comply with anything remotely similar to tradition, or you tell them to get lost and actually mean it. Hey, me saying this doesn’t benefit me in any way. I’m just saying.

    It’s too bad Charlotte Church gave up her church music. She has a voice like an angel.

    Why have kids if you can’t even stick it out ? Ugh!

    oh well Says:

    Too bad for the children.

    If only women could figure out the “he’s not that into you thing” early. This man was never into it, just look at the pictures but she fell for the fairytale of tall, dark and handsome sweeping her off her feet and starting a family. Poor girl, I wish her the best.

    On a different not, how old is she? I thought she is young? If so, why the heck is she wearing the bikini of a 45 year-old house frau?

    With a man like that she needs to wear a Brazilian dental floss bikini. No one wants to hear that but that is the truth and yes, I am a woman.

    Stupid women need to stop having babies out of wedlock. If they didn’t have kids, they could just go their separate ways. Now there are two little ones who will not have one parent to wake up to in the morning. This is sad and needless. Half of men don’t even want kids, especially before they get married, but idiot women don’t take care of their business and try to force men into marriage.

    A break away from each other will probably do them both the world of good. When the time is right (only they will know) they could meet up, spend some quiet time together and hopefully realise that they are well suited and will get back together for themselves as well as the children. They are a lovely family who should be left alone to sort things out. Imagine the shoe being on the other foot, would you like anyone interfering in your private life, I know I wouldn’t. Good luck both and I hope you work through this and sort yourselves out.

    I never understand when they have enough guts to bring a children into the world, but can’t committee to each other. He probably realized that if he marries her he can’t sleep with any other women. I don’t know who’s fault this break up is, but footballers are ones best to avoid as history shows.

    @Maia: I agree with you…it’s a shame that a child should have to grow up with an absent parent. Maybe they’re just holding off the engagement but will still be a couple? It’s possible.

    eh. Says:

    They didn’t plan the pregnancy, for those bashing them for bringing a child into the world.

    Right after reading this posting, I pondered the exact same point that I invariably wonder about when scanning new blogs and forums. Just what do I think about this? Precisely how need to it effect me? This and extra posts in your weblog right here surely give some stuff to contemplate. I basically ended up here via Yahoo when I was initial performing some web investigation for some course perform that I’ve. Usually excellent times browsing by way of and I’m hopeful that you will maintain on writing new posts. Cheers!
