Gavin Henson says his 'driving force' comes from being a dad

New father Gavin Henson, 25, just recently made his return to international rugby. He and fiancée, Charlotte Church, 21, welcomed their first daughter, Ruby Megan, on September 20. Charlotte cheered Gavin on during the game from the sidelines during his first start for Wales in over a year. Gavin revealed that his driving force comes from being a new dad. He said:

It’s the best thing that’s ever happened to me. Before, I was probably putting a lot on myself, always trying to do the extra in training and thinking about the game a lot. Then suddenly you realize something else comes first which is the baby, Ruby. I think that has helped me a lot.

Unfortunately Gavin’s team lost the game. Prince William presented the cup to world champions South Africa.
