Recent pictures of Welsh opera crossover star Katherine Jenkins have us chatting at the O.C. Headquarters. Has the nippy Fall weather kicked the lovely mezzo's metabolism into hibernation mode? Have too many fabulous parties laden with high-fat nibbles kept Jenkins out of the gym, fostering indulgence in bellinis & blinis (with xtra crème fraîche)?

Church is currently 5-months pregnant with her second child from live-in boyfriend, Gavin Henson. Could Jenkins be the latest to join Jamie Lynn Spears, Anna Netrebko, and Halle Berry in celebrity unwed babydom?
In the image above, taken on September 17, 2008 during London's Spring 2009 Fashion Week, Katherine Jenkins took part in the celeb-ridden "Fashion for Relief" show. Brainchild of ex-supermodel Naomi Campbell, the charity catwalk & auction events raise awareness with the White Ribbon Alliance for Safe Motherhood, an organization devoted to ensuring safe pregnancies and childbirths around the world. o teh ironings!
Below is another image of Jenkins looking a bit, um, bloated later in the night, arriving at the F4R gala dinner.

Here is Jenkins and her bf:
