The Canadian Press reports Nelly Furtado fought to keep her pregnancy under wraps, and unlike some other celebrities, didn’t publicize her daughter’s birth. But the news was leaked and picked up by a host of celebrity magazines. “I just want to protect her a lot from that world. I want her to choose what kind of life she wants to have,” Furtado said of the child she had with her boyfriend, Lil’ Jaz, who is also her band’s DJ.
The Canadian singer said she’d consider retiring from music if it came down to it. “I’m going to have to see how it goes. I love making music right now but if I have to sacrifice something, obviously she comes first. I’ll do whatever I have to do to make her happy,” she says.
