This is the statement in full from Charlotte Church's management, posted on her website:

Charlotte has asked us to bring you the news exclusively today via that she is pregnant.

For reasons of privacy, Charlotte has chosen not to comment on this matter, other than to confirm that she and her boyfriend, Gavin Henson, 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.
