Rosie Huntington-Whiteley and Jason Statham are very protective of their 2-year-old son Jack when it comes to privacy.
The supermodel and founder of Rose Inc., 32, explains to People why they have decided to keep their son’s presence mostly off of social media.
“I think he’s the cutest thing in the world, and I want to scream it from the rooftops. Motherhood is just a wonderful journey of many ups and downs… every day there is a new set of challenges and a new set of triumphs,” Huntington-Whiteley told the publication.
She added, “At the heart of everything is my family and making sure that they’re okay and that they have everything they need and that I’m committed as a parent in every way possible.”
But considering the Internet isn’t going away anytime soon, Huntington-Whiteley and Statham are letting Jack decided if he wants “to have his face all over the Internet.”
She adds, “I just want him to basically grow up as normal as he can and to see what his parents do as their work, but when they come home, it’s family time. Things on the internet live forever. Jack might grow up one day and want to be a doctor or a lawyer or a solicitor or an architect and might not want to have his face all over the Internet… it’s not about publicizing those private moments for us.”
The “Transformers” star also touched on the struggles of balancing work and motherhood. “Sometimes I have to leave him to go on a work trip and it’s heartbreaking every time,” she noted, but work brings her “a lot of fulfilment” and is “hugely important” to her so juggling two is just another fact of life.
“There are days when I just want to pull my hair out, and then there are days when I feel like Queen B,” Huntington-Whiteley says. “That’s just the way it goes.”
