Singer Paloma Faith has revealed that she intends to raise her child – and future children – as gender neutral.
The 36-year old welcomed her first child with boyfriend Leyman Lahcine in December last year.
Speaking to The Mirror, Paloma said: “I love being a mum. I want two or three kids in all and they’ll all be gender neutral.”
She added that she hopes to have more children with her partner, French artist Leyman Lahcine: “I’m loving being a mum. I want two or three kids in all and they’ll be gender neutral.”
Faith announced the birth on Instagram, in which she wrote a passionate thank you to the NHS following a “difficult labour” that resulted in an “emergency caesarian”.
“The devotion, kindness, and commitment shown by all of them was second to none and I am humbled by the whole experience,” she wrote. “I really believe the NHS to be one of the great achievements of this country and it should be respected and protected by all.”
