Kids on social media
Many celebs like Holly Willoughby and Katie Piper choose not to show their children’s faces on social media. We asked two famous mums for their views
Hollyoaks actress Sarah Jayne Dunn, 36, is mum to Stanley, two, with her partner Jonathan Smith.
‘When Stanley was born, me and my husband decided to keep his identity private, and at first we didn’t post any photos of him. But then we weighed up the pros and cons and decided to share photos. I wanted to use my journey of becoming a mummy to help others going through the same struggles and joys. I felt that by not sharing pictures of my son, I was being hypocritical as I want to give my followers an honest view of my life.’ Follow @Sarahjaynedunn
The Saturdays’ Rochelle Humes, 29, is mum to Alaia-mai, five, and oneyear-old Valentina Raine with her TV presenter husband Marvin, 33.
‘For me, social media is a great place, but it’s not something my children need to be on. They may want a really serious job in the future, where what I do is offensive to them. I would just rather them have a choice and people recognise them because they want that to happen, rather than me be like, “This is my daughter!” Alaia is definitely not shy, she’s really confident, but who knows, they might come to me in the future and decide they don’t want to do anything with my industry, so I’d rather give them the choice. Having said that, [TOWIE star] Chloe [Lewis] – a family friend – posted a pic where the kids were in the background. She was really worried, but I didn’t mind.’ Follow @rochellehumes
‘It would be hypocritical of me not to!’ ‘Social media is not the place for my children!’
