An opera singer since childhood and more recently a TV presenter, Charlotte Church is prepared for a hiatus from the spotlight. Having to balance her family — boyfriend Gavin Henson and their 13-month-old daughter Ruby Megan — with her career, the 22-year-old, who is expecting her second child in mid-January, is prepared to temporarily give up the latter for the sake of parenthood. "I love singing and I always want to do that, but my family is more important to me as I don’t want to neglect my responsibilities as a mother," says Charlotte.

Spending her days on the family’s farm near Cardiff, Wales, Charlotte has been running the household which include a menagerie of animals. As the couple raise their two goats and prepare for the delivery of "twenty chickens and two geese" which they plan to "eat at Christmas," Charlotte has been concentrating her time on being a stay-at-home mom.
