Maia Dunphy has opened up about why she keeps her son Tom out of the public eye. Many famous mums share snaps of their children on social media with their followers. Celebrities like Kim Kardashian, Tom Fletcher and Chrissy Teigen are known for posting about their kids online, but other parents aren’t comfortable with doing so.
Maia Dunphy took to Twitter to explain why she doesn’t show her son Tom’s face online. She tweeted: “People regularly ask why I don’t show Tom’s face.”
She explained: “Look, I think he’s the sweetest thing to ever be, and he’d improve any magazine spread.”
“I don’t think it’s right to put his image into the public domain. Until he wants it that is,” the mum stressed.
Followers completely supported Maia’s reasons with many agreeing that she is right not to share photos of him until he reaches an age where he can make that decision himself.

“We see enough of Tom to make out what a cute kid he is and the divilment he gets up to. It's only respecting his rights to privacy,” one wrote.
Another added: “I totally agree I don't think it's appropriate to be bringing a child to work or plastering them on magazine unless they want to be in the public eye later on in life. I hate when celebrities do that stop using it kids to get gigs.”
Other followers couldn’t believe Maia was being asked why she doesn’t post photos of her young son's face. “It’s no ones business. They can ask all the want. You decide. You’re his mammy. You shouldn’t even have to tell them why.
We must stand up and applaud Maia for her honesty. Power to her!
