Charlotte Church & Gavin Henson Welcome A Son!


(In the above pic Charlotte and Gavin are pictured with their daughter Ruby)

UPDATE: Charlotte and Gavin selected a simple and classic name for their son.

“Gavin and Charlotte have chosen the name Dexter for their new baby boy,” their Web site said. “In keeping with the Henson family tradition, Dexter will also have the name Lloyd as a middle name.”

“They planned a home birth all along, so it was nice not to have to rush to the hospital,” a friend told Us magazine. “They’re just relieved. Char was 10 days overdue and was in absolute agony in those last few days. She felt like she could burst — literally!”

The pal added: “There were no complications, but it was it was a long birth. She was in labor for about eight hours.”

Singer Charlotte Church and rugby star Gavin Henson welcomed their second child, a boy, on Sunday, she announced on her Web site.

The boy – who weighed 7 lbs. and 5 oz. – was born just after midnight at their home in south Wales.

“Mum and baby are both doing just fine,” read the statement.

Charlotte, 22, has yet to announce the baby’s name.

She first blogged in June that they were expecting again. “Here we go again!!!” she said.

The couple welcomed a daughter, Ruby Megan Henson, in 2007.

    She was not rushed to the hosptal, she had a homebirth. She was it was nice NOT to have to rush to a hospital.

    I can’t believe that your Doctor allowed you to go through labor for 42 hours without doing something. What a jerk.

    She was rushed to the hospital after a long labor…since when is 8 hours considered a long labor? I was in labor for 42 hours. 8 is a piece of cake! I’ll take that any day.

    Re #19 & #20 – I was just kidding. I knew it was Ruby from the caption. Of course, it’s virtually impossible to tell the sex of a newborn just by the face. Especially when wrapped in a white blanket. Not a stitch of pink anywhere.

    I know his name is Dexter because i checked up on charlotte’s official website which broke the news first. They also have the name on Celebrity Baby Blog.

    Apparently Wikipedia and British news said his name was Rocco Montgomery lol.

    Actually after saying the name repeatedly after a while, with my welsh accent it doesn’t sound so bad. I just didn’t expect her to choose that name. Surely they’ll call him Dex which is pretty cool.
