Charlotte Church is determined to keep the last few weeks of her pregnancy calm and paparazzi-free. Sources claimed the singer, who is nine months pregnant with her first child, installed $60,000 worth of security equipment to ensure the safety of her family. She also surrounded her 1.5 acre Wales estate with a privacy fence to help keep prying eyes away.Charlotte, 21, and boyfriend Gavin Henson decided to have an at-home water-birth to allow more privacy than they would find at a hospital. Says an associate of Gavin’s,

She and Gavin are the only celebrities in this part of the world, so they get all the attention. If they were in London they would just be one of many stars, but living where they do, everyone knows their business. Charlotte has been feeling like she is under a microscope. It’s making her unhappy.

Despite the stress of life as a well-known couple in a small community, Charlotte and Gavin, a Welsh International Rugby Union player, enjoy huge success in their careers: they ranked as the 49th richest young people in Britain on The Sunday Times rich list with an estimated wealth exceeding $20 million.

Charlotte is due the third week of September.

This is more common in the UK I gather. I had a water birth at home and it was perfect for us. I wish her all the best.
