Paloma Faith has kept her child's gender a secret because she doesn't think ''celebrity culture'' is healthy for children.
Paloma Faith doesn't think ''celebrity culture'' is healthy for children.
The 'Stone Cold Sober' singer hasn't revealed the name or gender of her 13-month-old child - who she has with partner Leyman Lahcine - and admitted she speaks about her offspring very differently when in public to when they're at home.
She said: ''I refer to my child as 'they' in public. In private I refer to them as their gender.
''I don't believe that celebrity culture is healthy for a child.''
The 36-year-old singer admitted parenting has changed her outlook on life and she loves the fact so many people are embracing gender neutral values.
She said: '''When you become a parent everything makes you look outward, and makes you think what do I want to teach.
''My heart sings when I see little boys pushing buggies because that means they're learning about being caring.''
The 'Crybaby' singer is also very proud of her latest album, 'The Architect', because it gave her a platform to express her feminist beliefs.
Speaking on 'Good Morning Britain', she said: ''Every decade is a good time to be a woman because we are absolutely amazing.
''I used the album as a platform to represent and say my beliefs so I can enforce alternative ways of thinking. I'm 100% a feminist. Women, all races, shapes, sizes, creeds deserve mutual respect.
''The other day I heard someone say something about someone only being good for breeding. Awful comment.''
Paloma recently admitted she ''couldn't wait'' to find out whether she was carrying a boy or a girl during her pregnancy.
She said: ''I did find out as early as I possibly could what gender my baby was - I couldn't wait.''
