Charlotte Church is ‘probably doing a better job’ of parenting her third child

Charlotte Church thinks she is ‘probably doing a better job’ of parenting her third child because she knows more about herself. 

The 35-year-old singer was in her early twenties when she had daughter Ruby, 14, and 12-year-old son Dexter with her ex Gavin Henson. 

Charlotte admitted while being a mother is ‘still chaotic’ after she gave birth to daughter Frida with her husband Jonathan Powell in August 2020, she has gained valuable experience over the years.

As well as being a mother-of-three, Charlotte is still hoping to release new music ‘in the next couple of years’ and the self-confessed ‘tree hugger’ is keen to live as a ‘wild woman in the woods’ as much as she can.

Quizzed about whether she would like to do more in the music world again, the Crazy Chick hitmaker – who is currently working on creating a wellness centre in Wales – added: ‘I’d love to be involved in it for the rest of my life because it’s the best job ever.

‘I really want to release an album in the next couple of years, but if we open the retreat centre next year, that’s going to take a huge amount of my time and energy. 

‘I want to live as a wild woman in the woods as much as I can, too, and be present for all of my babies, friends, and family. So it’s just being realistic about how that happens.’

In October, she revealed she welcomed her third child, daughter Freda, under a tree after deciding to build herself a ‘birth palace’ in her back garden.

She confessed that she was ‘overconfident’ about going through labour again after previously welcoming two children, but she was quickly ‘b***h slapped in the face,’ as she struggled through the pain while outdoors in the rain.

Speaking on Rob Beckett’s and Josh Widdecomb’s Parenting Hell podcast, Charlotte went onto say that parenting is ‘unbelievably difficult’.

However, she views it as ‘the pinnacle of her existence,’ adding it’s helped her to become ‘calmer’ and to ‘know herself better.’
