But on Monday, reps for the singer confirmed the couple’s heartbreaking news on Twitter.

They said: “Charlotte and Jonny are very sad to announce that they lost their baby. Now is a time for grieving and being together as a family.

“We kindly ask everyone to respect that peace.”

The 31-year-old already has two children, nine-year-old Ruby Megan Henson and Dexter Lloyd Henson, 8, with her ex-fiance, Welsh rugby player Gavin Henson.

She has been dating musician Jonathan since 2010, who she had previously hinted she wanted to have children with.

“I don’t know. I’d never rule out anything. Never say never.”
