Singer Paloma Faith announced on Instagram that she welcomed her second child on Sunday 21 February. Now, fans are dying to know who the baby daddy is.
Congratulations to English singer Paloma Faith, who announced the arrival of her second daughter on her Instagram account.
In her honest caption, she highlights the struggles of being a mother to a newborn and her current post-birth conditions. Her post comes of no surprise as she has been taking her fans along the journey with her regular ‘pregnancy diary’ updates where she has transparently shown her complications e.g. unrecognisable swollen feet and avoiding COVID while pregnant.
This is her second daughter with her long-term boyfriend Leyman Lahcine and the internet is eager to find out more about him, since Paloma does not mention him frequently.
Who is Leyman Lahcine?
Leyman Lahcine is a French artist and designer, born in Grenoble, France in 1987, making him 34-years-old this year. He is of Algerian heritage.
His quirky and unique work has been exhibited in London and across the pond, in New York City, where he spent his early twenties. When he moved to London, he completed an MA in Fashion Design at Kingston University.
His main use of social media is to share his works, so you won’t be seeing much of his face.
2021 will mark their eighth year together as the couple got together in 2013. Despite not being legally married, Paloma refers to Leyman as her husband because “you don’t need a marriage certificate.”
In an interview with Glass Magazine in 2015, Leyman mentioned that when he first moved to London, he did not go out much but still loved it as he met the love of his life there.
Paloma Faith and Leyman Lahcine’s children
The couple’s first child arrived in 2016 and announced they were expecting a second in September 2020. This time, Paloma had to go through six rounds of IVF treatment before successfully falling pregnant, as her first pregnancy led to post partum depression and she suffered in miscarriage in 2019.
Paloma never confirmed the gender of her first child until she turned three because she announced that she would be raising her gender neutral “I just want them to be who they want to be”.
