In Hiding? Cheryl’s Parenting Tactic Has Been Branded ‘Overprotective’ By An Expert
Neither Cheryl nor Bear have been seen in five weeks.
Since Cheryl and Liam’s baby Bear was born five weeks ago, she and her son are nowhere to be seen, and behavioural expert Judi James is worried.
While Liam has been flying to and from the States, working on his music, and posting pictures to his Instagram, Cheryl and Bear haven’t been spotted since they left the hospital.
The last image shared by the 33-year-old was of her newborn and Liam, mere days after his birth, but there’s been nothing posted since. Zilch, zero, nada.
On Wednesday 22nd March Liam and I became parents to an incredibly beautiful, healthy baby boy, weighing 7lb 9 and looking like a dream. Although he still doesn't have a name he is already stealing hearts. We are all madly in love and overwhelmingly happy with our little arrival. Happy Mother's Day to all the mothers around the world. A day that now has a different meaning to me forever ?
Judi James fears that the new mum will become a recluse if she doesn’t step out in public soon. “I understand that Cheryl might want privacy and time to enjoy the moment but presuming that all is well with the baby, and that she’s feeling okay, hiding a baby away is ridiculous,” she told new! magazine.
“If you start to believe that the rest of the world is dangerous, it can become overprotection, both of yourself and the baby. It could be she’s got stuck in a spiral where she’s created space between herself and the press and fans, and now finds it every difficult to back from that stance.”
The expert added, “It’s a good idea for her to get out there and socialise and lead as much of a normal life as possible. Cheryl knows what this business is like and she she also knows that the longer she keeps her son a secret, the more frenzied the interest will be.
“The worst thing is when these people start to believe their own publicity. You’ve got to have a sense of humour. She used to have that.”
Yikes… Harsh words, Judi. Perhaps Cheryl does her grocery shopping online and doesn’t need to go outside… Do you think the singer is being overprotective?
