Welsh singer Charlotte Church has reassured her former fiance Gavin Henson he won't be pushed out of their children's lives as she embarks on a new relationship.
The rugby star, who split from Church in May (10), admitted earlier this month (Sep10) he hated the thought of another man raising his kids, Ruby, two, and Dexter, 20 months.
The comments came just days after Church revealed she is dating songwriter Jonathan Powell - but the singer is adamant Henson will always be the children's father figure.
She tells BBC's Newsbeat, "I shall be very, very careful that Gavin will always remain their father and that my kids come first - and that is how I work.
"We are really, really strong and the mother and father to our children."
