Charlotte is already mother to two children, who she shares with her ex, Welsh rugby player Gavin Henson. She began dating musician Jonathan Powell later that year. 'Three weeks ago, it was claimed that the musician was preparing for an expanded family life when she posted a job online for childcare help.
In a rare candid interview about her family this year, the star revealed she hadn't 'ruled out' having more children. He’s lush, he’s so smart and he really looks after me.'I don’t know. The advert described the position as being with a 'VIP family' who live near Cardiff - with the mother expecting a third child in November.
(She takes a loo break and leaves her mobile phone within reach on the table in front of me.) Unusually for a famous person giving an interview, Church sets no time limit on our conversation; she is happier to go with the flow and see where it leads us.
We start by talking about Under Milk Wood, which, if you remember it only from school, you might not recognise in its new twisted, grotesque and highly eroticised glory.
She was brought up as a Roman Catholic by her mother, Maria, who was separated from Church's biological father, Stephen Reed.
Church was adopted by her mother's second husband, James Church, in 1999.
There followed a now defunct relationship with the Welsh rugby star Gavin Henson, which did nothing to shake off the paps, a chat show that was roundly and unfairly slated and further attempts at musical reinvention.
And now, just when there are those who might wish she would disappear back to the Llandaff district of Cardiff she emerged from, Church has reinvented herself again as an unlikely spokesperson for the disenfranchised and landed herself the part of Polly Garter in Kevin Allen’s wild reimagining of Dylan Thomas’s Understandably wary, she has agreed to give only two interviews to the papers she feels she can trust. We agree to meet at the charmingly scruffy Wheatsheaf pub in central London, not least because it was where Dylan Thomas – whose birthday it would be on Tuesday – met his wife Caitlin in 1936, but also because Church feels at home in this kind of setting.The star is already a mother to nine-year-old Ruby and Dexter, eight, from her previous relationship with Gavin Henson.She wrote: '1 of 2 Charlotte and Jonny are very sad to announce that they lost their baby.” The reactions from area residents have veered from support for the church’s adherence to biblical principles to expressions of disbelief, exposing political, cultural and spiritual fault lines across the Brawley School Road peninsula that run as deep as nearby Lake Norman.“I drive by this church every day and the signs displayed are increasingly hostile towards Muslims, gay/transgendered people and basically anybody who isn’t a bigot or a Trump supporter,” one post on the church’s Facebook page reads.Here’s another reacting to the Disney boycott: “Excuse me, but that is sick.” And there’s this one: “Your so-called church is a blasphemous representation of true Christianity.” Facebook poster Gina Mann: “If you and your parishioners wish to worship in such a (hateful) way, you need to keep it inside the walls of your narrow-minded church,” she wrote.
