Paloma Faith reveals gender of her three year old child as she opens up on motherhood in rare chat
Paloma Faith has confirmed the gender of her child during a candid chat about motherhood.
The 38 year old, who previously revealed why she's raising her three year old as gender neutral, made the revelation while speaking to Giovanna Fletcher on the Happy Mum Happy Baby podcast.
The singer explained that she's always been drawn towards people who need looking after and, as someone who holds the Cancer sign, has always been maternal.

Opening up about having an abortion in her youth, she said: "In the past I'd been very fertile and I'd had moments when I was too young to have a baby where I'd chosen not to have it.
“And I felt very fertile. And when I met my partner I felt very different with him than I felt with most people."
Paloma, who tragically suffered a miscarriage in 2019, then revealed the gender of her child as she continued: "Last year I was trying again and it's strange because I think once my daughter turned 18 months I suddenly was like, 'I want another one, this is amazing, this is the best!'
"Then I had a miscarriage and it's sort of an ongoing thing."
Paloma went on: "It's tense. It's not very sexy. I have a scar that isn't healing properly from my caesarian so it's creating a bit of a toxic atmosphere which is also quite hard."
The Voice Kids coach welcomed her daughter with her long-term boyfriend, Leyman Lahcine, in 2016.

The star told 35 year old Giovanna that she actually experienced online abuse from trolls for her decision as she said: "I had people calling me a child abuser online for saying that. Which was weird.
"And I think that's sort of part and parcel of why I didn't want that information out, and I still sort of withhold that.
“So if I'm with my child in public and someone comes over and asks to have their picture taken with me I never do it. At this moment my child has no idea that I'm famous or different from anyone else.

“She does know I'm on TV because she's seen it, but she has no concept that that makes people treat me differently. And sometimes somebody might come over and say something to me and she'll say, why are they doing that?
“And I'll say, 'they like mummy's singing'. But I don't really make it into a thing, like, there's people like me who are really special. Because it's absolute nonsense. It is just my job."
