Charlotte Church and boyfriend Gavin Henson have named their new baby girl Ruby.

The singer gave birth on Thursday at the farmhouse she shares with Gavin in St Brides Major, in the Vale of Glamorgan, south Wales.

A message posted by the webmaster of the singer’s internet site, www.charlottechurch.com, said: “I’ve just been chatting to Charlotte this morning and she told me that she and Gavin have chosen the name Ruby for their baby daughter.

“Ruby was born at 10.35pm last Thursday and weighed in at 6 pounds 12 ounces, exactly the same weight that Charlotte was when she was born.”

Charlotte, 21, and Ruby – her first child – are both doing well.

The message said: “Charlotte said that they have spent the weekend receiving family and friends and everything is fine with both her and Ruby.”
