Charlotte Church is grieving for her unborn baby, after revealing on Twitter that she lost her third child in the womb.
The 31-year-old singer took to the social media platform to announce herself and her partner Jonathan Powell had tragically lost their unborn child and asked for everyone to respect their privacy at this difficult time.
A statement posted to her Twitter account read: “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. We kindly ask everyone to respect that peace.”
Charlotte is already a mother to Ruby, nine, and Dexter, eight – who she has with her former partner Gavin Henson – had previously refused to rule out having a baby with her current partner.
She shared: “I’m really happy with my dude. He’s lush, he’s so smart and he really looks after me. I don’t know [if we’d have kids]. I’d never rule out anything. Never say never!”
It comes only weeks after Charlotte announced she was pregnant with her third child as she performed on stage at Birmingham Pride in late May.
During the performance, Charlotte wore fishnet tights and a loose sparkly top that covered her baby bump.
The ‘Call My Name’ hitmaker previously admitted she loves being pregnant and the process of giving birth.
She said: “I love the whole process of pregnancy and birth. 10 minutes after I had Ruby, I thought, ‘F***ing loved that, I’ll do it again.’ Lush. Two home births, gorgeous.”
