Update: Charlotte Church With Baby Ruby – Interview & Photos Added

Interview & More Pictures Below

On having suspicions about being pregnant again:

Charlotte: “Not at all! My hips were really, really sore and that made me check. I’d just started going on the cross trainer in Gav’s gym and for the rest of the day I was absolutely killing. I thought, hang on this reminds me of the latter stages of pregnancy. I’ll just check, but I’m definitely not. It was a nice sunny day and Gavin was sat with his leg in plaster and I went out and said: ‘You’ll never guess what – I’m only pregnant again!'”

On being shocked at the news:

Gavin: “A little bit. We didn’t plan for it to happen but I’m really happy it did. We like being young parents, so if we’re planning on having quite a few then we need to get started!”

On how many children they want:

C: “Maybe four to six now!”

G: “Or six to eight.”

C: “We’d like to have two close together, then a gap, then another two close together.”

On feeling sick during pregnancy:

C: “I felt sick all the time last time but this time I’ve been great.”

On pregnancy cravings:

C: “Actually just nice fresh salads, which is better than lasagne which is what I craved last time! Lasagne and spaghetti bolognese.”

On preference for which sex:

C: “Not at all.”

G: “I’m not bothered. We’re young and we’ve got plenty of time to keep going for a boy. Hopefully we will at some point, though.”

On Charlotte regaining her pre-pregnancy body:

C: “I was just beginning to get my body back and I was doing quite well – I wasn’t far off my pre-pregnancy weight, which was nine and a half stone. It’s a natural process, though, so I’m not too bothered. I’m not looking forward to getting a big fat face and arms again but it’s what women are made for and if you can’t indulge yourself during pregnancy, when can you?”

On taking Ruby to work:

C:“Yes. She’s doing a new thing every single day and I don’t want to miss anything. I really miss her if I haven’t seen her for a couple of hours. She’s getting to be more of a daddy’s girl now, though, as well, which I love. He’s had a leg in plaster because he tore the ligaments in his foot so he’s been home a lot and she’s used to having him here now. He’s absolutely brilliant with her. I knew he would be good but I didn’t realise he’d be this good.”

On Ruby reacting to the new baby:

C: “Well she’s really happy-go-lucky so hopefully she will be fine. The only thing is she gets constant attention because she is so lush. Everyone always comments on what a happy child she is – she’s always smiling and content.

G: “She only really cries when she’s about to go to sleep and if she’s a bit moany in the day we just take her outside and show her the animals because we have dogs, chickens, geese and sheep and she’s fascinated by them. She chases the dogs round in her walker.”

C: “She terrorises them! She knows just how to corner them, you see this glint in her eye. They’re definitely wary of her!”

O who Ruby takes after:

C: “She’s quite tough and that’s like both of us – if she falls over she doesn’t really cry, she looks a bit surprised and then just carries on.”

G: “She likes all her fruit and vegetables and she definitely gets that from me!”

C: “She used to love mashed avocado, now she’ll eat strawberries and bananas and broccoli heads! She’s got no teeth yet, though.”

On getting a nanny:

C: “Never! Although ask me again when we’ve got four!”

G: “I don’t think it would ever come to that. We’ve got a lot of help with all four grandparents and they all live nearby.”
