Charlotte and Gavin prepare for showbiz christening.

THE final preparations were being made last night for the christening of singer Charlotte Church and rugby player Gavin Henson's son Dexter.

A huge marquee has been erected in the grounds of the country mansion the couple share in the Vale of Glamorgan.

Charlotte, 23, is throwing a party today for her son Dexter, with friends from the showbiz and sporting world expected.

But security will be tight - Charlotte and her boyfriend Henson, 28, have reportedly signed a six-figure deal with a glossy magazine for the exclusive photo shoot.

Dexter will be christened by Father Christopher Delaney who also christened Charlotte and her two-year-old daughter Ruby.

Minibuses have been laid on to take guests from St Mary's Church, in Cardiff, to the couple's home in St Brides Major.

Friends said chat show host Charlotte wanted a "proper welcome party" for eight-month-old Dexter.

"A lot of people might think christenings are a bit old-fashioned these days, but not Charlotte.

"She has always been a churchgoer and she first started singing in the church hall at St Mary's," a friend said.

"It is amazing that Father Delaney christened Charlotte more than 20 years ago and he is still around to christen Ruby and Dexter.

"Charlotte loves Father Delaney and she was very keen to have a full proper ceremony for Dexter.

"She wanted all the proper church trimmings and then a big party back at her place."

Guests at the private party will include Gavin's rugby mates and some of Charlotte's old friends.
