Songbird Avril has finally spoken out on why she hides her baby’s face when sharing moments with him on social media.

Avril said she does not want her son to be in the limelight until he is old enough to decide for himself.

Avril who delivered a baby boy in April this year has managed to keep her life as a mother under wraps until recently while being interviewed.

“I want M to have a simple life, without the pressure of being compared to or being set for unrealistic expectations because he is my son. When he is old enough and chooses the public light for himself, then that’s okay. Until then it’s a no for me,” she said

Avril also said since she gave birth she has received many endorsement deals worth a lot of cash but has turned them down because she does not want her son in the limelight.

“I’ve been approached for endorsement deals and I’ve had to turn them all down. Mind you, it’s a lot of money.” She said

She added that she will only consider endorsements if the company is comfortable with keeping her sons identity secret.

“If I’m signing a contract, I’m signing as Avril not as Avril and M, unless the corporate is comfortable with my son’s identity remaining anonymous.” She added
