When asked about his thoughts on the birth the handsome 25-year-old said:
"It's crazy. I don't really want to think about it at the moment."
But Charlotte's mum says the sportsman's words were taken out of context.
"He's 110 per cent delighted. Gavin has been very protective over Charlotte recently. I think he will be a fabulous dad. He has a very gentle and calm character and those are good qualities for being a father. I can see him being very hands on - going to all the antenatal classes and being at the birth.”
Gavin Henson and Charlotte Church, who've been together for three years, have been busy sorting out the nursery in their Cardiff home ahead of the new arrival. One thing not taking up their time, however, is organising a wedding. Although the pair have not announced their engagement, Maria hints that nuptials may be on the cards - just not any time soon. "She and Gav want to take their time and do it right," she says.
