Charlotte Church has confirmed she is pregnant with her third child.

The former child star announced her pregnancy on social media after she pulled out of a charity concert because of coronavirus.

The singer said she was "gutted" to have missed the charity event held for Welsh flood victims, adding:.

I'm preggers so I'm airing on the side of caution in terms of virus. It looked like it was a great success.

The Welsh singer-songwriter rose to fame early on in her childhood as a classical singer before branching out into pop music - now she is also known as a presenter and campaigner.

Last year, she submitted a planning application to turn part of her Dinas Powys home into a school for 20 children, describing the current education system as "not working".

Since I've had kids I have become much more interested in education and child development," she said when announcing her plans.

We started looking at schools and different mainstream options available to us.

It started to become apparent that mainstream is struggling with underfunding and overcrowding - teachers are incredibly tested.

It's not there fault the way things are - the system is not working.
