Paloma Faith has opened up about suffered a miscarriage in 2019 and raising her first born as gender neutral.

In a candid chat with the Happy Mummy Happy Baby podcast, the 38-year-old singer, who has one child with long-term artist boyfriend Leyman Lahcine, discussed the difficult experience along with her fertility struggles.

"Last year I was trying again and it was strange because once my daughter turned 18 months I suddenly was like, I want another one.

"This is the best. Then I had a miscarriage and it's sort of an ongoing thing. 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," she said.

Faith, who previously said she is raising her child gender neutral to avoid damaging stereotypes, said the response by some people to her decision has been "weird".

"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," she said.
