Charlotte Church's mother has given her approval to her new boyfriend, Gavin Henson. The 'Voice of an Angel' star's mum, Maria, who has previously shown her dislike for her daughter's former loves, said of the Welsh rugby star: "He's fun, handsome and ambitious - what mother wouldn't like him going out with her daughter." The new couple spent Saturday night (05.03.05) at the family's Cardiff pub with Maria, who said of the evening: "We all had a great night. Charlotte and Gavin looked really smitten and she is happy again." However, she admits it is early days yet, saying: "They are concentrating on their careers and having a good time." The singer's mother is obviously relieved at her daughter's choice as Charlotte has a history of turbulent relationships with wayward men. Her first love, Steven Johnson, had a number of flings with other women and she recently punched ex, Kyle Johnson, after he sold intimate secrets of their relationship to a British Newspaper. The Opera sensation had originally turned down Gavin because of her involvement with Kyle but started dated the rugby player just two weeks after they split.
