Welsh singer Charlotte Church suffered a miscarriage just weeks after sharing the baby news with her fans on social media. The musician announced she lost her baby on Twitter.

 

31-year-old singer and songwriter Charlotte Church is going through a sad time. She shared with her Twitter followers that she recently suffered a miscarriage and she asked for privacy these days.

“1 of 2 Charlotte and Jonny are very sad to announce that they lost their baby. Now is a time for grieving and being together as a family”, her first tweet on the matter read.

“2 of 2 We kindly ask everyone to respect that peace.”

Church and her partner, musician Johnny Powell, announced they were expecting back in May. The two started dating in 2010.

Prior to her current relationship, Charlotte was dating rugby player Gavin Henson. The two got together in 2005 and, later that year, they moved together in a freshly-bought property in the Vale of Glamorgan in the village of St. Bride’s Major, in Wales. They never got married even though they have spoken to the press about wedding plans, throughout the years they were together. The couple split in 2010.

Church and Henson have two children: Ruby Megan, who is 9-years-old, and Dexter Lloyd, who is 7.

Throughout her career, Charlotte Church, who has been in the music business since the age of 12, has received a series of Awards, including a Classical BRIT Award in 2000 for British Artist of the Year, a GQ Award, in 2005, for Woman of the Year, three Glamour Awards – 2 in 2006 for Editors Choice Awards and Solo Artist of the Year and 1 in 2007 under the category Readers Favourite TV Personality. She was also the recipient of a British Comedy Award in 2006 for Best Female Newcomer.
