Pregnant pop star Shakira wants to bring up her son away from the glare of spotlight.
The 37-year-old singer called on the paparazzi not to click pictures of her toddler son and let him enjoy a "normal" childhood, reported Contactmusic.
"I liked being able to share with fans and the people who have always supported us... But now that Milan is growing and has stopped being a baby, I would prefer it if the press did not focus so much on him. I would like him to enjoy a normal childhood, as much as that is possible" she said.
Shakira reveals that the toddler has no idea that his parents are celebrities and likes to keep it that way as long as possible.
"Milan still does not realise that Gerard and I are famous, because that is all he knows. He recognises us on television and in ads, he points and says 'Mama!' and 'Papa!', but does not know that other kids do not find the image of their parents on a toy box" she added.
Shakira and Spanish soccer star Gerrard Pique have been dating since 2010 and they are expecting a baby in early 2015.
