    Paloma Faith won't label her child with a gender so she can give them "all the opportunities to be the person they want to be"

    The 'Only Love Can Hurt Like This' hitmaker has a 13-month-old child with partner Leyman Lahcine and wants to ensure they always feel that "everything is available to them"


    She said: "I’m not in denial of gender but I want my child to feel that everything is available to them. And I have absolutely no problem if my child grows up not feeling an affinity with the gender they were born with, or if they’re homosexual or straight or whatever. It’s important to me that they’re given all the opportunities to be the person they want to be."

    And the 36-year-old singer prefers to keep her child out of the spotlight after hearing from children of famous people how difficult it was for them when they were growing up.

    She told You magazine: "I won’t say whether I have a boy or a girl for privacy reasons. I’ve chosen my life but my child didn’t. I’ve spoken to children of famous people and they’ve told me it was difficult for them growing up. I want my child to go to normal schools and integrate with kids from different backgrounds as a human being, not as a child of a celebrity."

    Meanwhile, Paloma previously insisted her approach to gender neutral parenting simply means not exposing her child to ideals and expectations based on stereotypes.

    She shared: "Being gender neutral is not a case of being gender X or Y, it's more, 'I don't care what gender you are, I want to teach you that violence isn't acceptable and that caring for people is important. You could be a scientist, a mathematician, fire fighter, painter, carer or whatever, it doesn't matter what gender you are. You can do anything you want to do. You can be gay, straight, transgender, a heterosexual working in IT and wearing a grey suit for all I care, because I will still love you.'"
