The Voice of an Angel star has announced on her web site that she is pregnant, just nine months after giving birth to Ruby Megan Henson.

"Here we go again!!!" the 22-year-old announced.

"Charlotte Church and Gavin Henson are delighted to announce that they are expecting another baby," the statement continued.

"The couple are thrilled, as are their immediate families."

The announcement also confirmed that Church is to fulfill her commitment to Channel 4 to present a third series of The Charlotte Church Show in July and August of this year.

Church and her rugby player partner Henson, 26, were named ninth in the Sunday Times young musicians rich list with a shared fortune of £11m.

"People think Charlotte still loves nightclubs, but she is so much happier at home," her mother Maria was quoted by the Sun newspaper as saying.

"She wants an army of animals."
