Just six weeks after announcing their engagement, singer Charlotte Church and her fiancé Gavin Henson have reportedly split.
The couple of five years are parents to kids Ruby, 2, and Dexter, 15 months.
UK newspaper The Daily Mail reports that the break-up has been confirmed by the singer’s rep, though no further details were released.
The paper quotes a source close to the pair as saying, “It is an incredibly sad state of affairs. Both Gavin and Charlotte are deeply distraught. But after a lot of soul-searching, they realised this is the best course of action for them and the children. It was a mutual decision.”
When Gavin, 28, proposed to Charlotte just last month he said, “We’ve had good times and hard times, but it’s mostly been good times and I think we’re meant to be together now for the rest of our lives.”

I think their generation is probably going to have the craziest, you know?… Any kid being born in these times is gonna have to be resilient to a million and one things. We thought we’d seen it all, and our parents thought that they’d seen it, but every generation it gets more and more intense.”
