Singer-songwriter Paloma Faith gave birth to a baby girl on 21 Feb., after six rounds of IVF treatments. She shared the news with her fans through a very honest Instagram post, which she captioned "Pregnancy diary".

In the post, she wrote "Well I'm not pregnant anymore! I had a planned C section yesterday I'm in a lot of pain and didn't sleep last night but it's worth it to see and meet the new little cherub I have in front of me. It's been about 30 hours and already I'm exhausted, sore, and my nipples are on fire with a baby piranha that wants to kill me. On them every few hours but I am of course elated! This baby couldn't be more loved or wanted if she tried (yes I have two gals). I'm now going through the constant worry of bottle vs breast, last time I breast fed exclusively and I think it was too hard! I don't know if I wanna put myself through that this time . . . but I'm trying anyway. And my nipples are on fire. Lost a litre of blood and I'm in so much pain despite the pain killers. The joys!"

The new addition marks Faith and partner Leyman Lahcine's second child, as Faith gave birth to her 4-year-old daughter back in 2016. News of her second pregnancy came in September 2020, and the singer has been sharing her journey via Instagram under the caption "Pregnancy diaries".
