Meghan Markle and Prince Harry welcomed their first child, a son, on Monday 6, May 2019.
The royal couple named their first child Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor.
Unlike many prominent people or celebrities who hide their children’s face until they’re grown, Archie’s parents unveiled his face two days after his birth.
Prince Harry’s brother William’s third child’s face was unveiled a few hours after birth.
Well, most of the local celebrity mothers take time to unveil their baby’s face. For some it is borne of a feeling of insecurity, for others, it’s to protect their children from trolls while for others still, it is for religious reasons -like with Muslims.
It’s an Islamic tradition that a baby’s face is only unveiled 40 days after its birth.
Michael Jackson was the first celebrity who kept the face of his children from the limelight and below is a list of Kenyans who’ve done the same.
