  • Paloma Faith has revealed that she intends to raise her child – and future children – as gender neutral.

    The 36-year old singer 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.’

    However to date the new mum still refuses to reveal whether she had a son or a daughter, and now she has confessed she is raising her child gender neutral.

    Paloma added: ‘I just want [my kids] to be who they want to be.’

    As part of this decision the blonde refuses to dress her baby in gender specific colours, such as pink for a girl and blue for a boy.

    While Paloma has admitted her love of being a mum, she has also spoken openly in the past about her struggles during childbirth.

    Detailing how she had intended to have an ‘all natural’ birth, but things didn’t go to plan, she said: ‘Everything that could possibly go wrong, went wrong!’

    Revealing in August just how hard it was, the singer explained: ‘I had 20 hours of labour, and a premature one, and then I wasn’t dilating. The baby was in jeopardy and so I had to have an ­emergency C-section.’

    Though the mum admitted she did nine hours of labour without pain relief and then ‘just lost the plot.’

    The singer went on to add: ‘I went to the gates of hell and I brought back an angel because it is just so incredible and I wouldn’t change a minute of it for the world because I just think I have made the best person ever.’
