TikTok Star Explains Why She Keeps Her Daughter Out of the Spotlight

By Movieguide® Contributor

TikToker Allison Kuch explained why she keeps her four-month-old daughter, Scottie, off of social media despite being very open about the rest of her life.

“Because of the opinions of people on social media, keeping our daughter more private was a very easy decision,” Kuch told E! News. “I think parenting is one of the most controversial things, whether they’re sleeping in a bassinet or in their room or formula-fed or breastfed. There’s such an opinion on everything.”

“And we both want to keep our daughter safe from, not only the judgment of other people, but also the weird people in the world,” she continued, adding, “The little parts I do show of motherhood, people are like, ‘Did you do that? Did you do this?’ And I’m like, ‘Ok, maybe I shouldn’t share that much.’”

She didn’t want to overshare her pregnancy either, saying, “I’m definitely going to keep a lot private, especially regarding my child,” shortly after announcing she was expecting.

Kuch’s desire for support rather than criticism extends into her private life as well. With multiple friends who are new mothers with her, she is looking to collaborate with those stepping into the new stage of life rather than dealing with numerous dissenting voices.

“I have one friend who is a mom and my other friend just became a mom,” she said. “I was like, ‘if you have any judgment, you’re getting blocked, you’re getting kicked out, because it’s so important to have this village.’”

“No baby is the same, no mom is the same,” Kuch continued. “So as much as I wish I could give people this, like, ‘Oh, this is going to fix everything, [I have nothing. Be] patient with yourself. Because I think I had these expectations like, ‘Oh, I need to be perfect, I need to do this, I don’t want to mess her up.’ But as long as you have the best interest of your child in your heart and you’re always doing your best, it’s going to be okay.”

Kuch is also thankful to be able to rely on her husband Isaac, an NFL defensive lineman, who is a terrific girl-dad.

“Everyone was so surprised when I shared our reaction [to Scottie’s gender] because everyone assumes, like, oh, he’s a football player, he wants a son,” Kuch said. “We both really did want a daughter and their relationship is so special…He wants to take her to get her nails done. He’s just such a caring human and seeing him with a daughter, it makes my love grow.”

Kuch and her husband committed to keeping parts of their lives private even before their daughter’s birth.

“We have a very strong relationship, we’ve been together eight years and I’m not scared to share any part of that,” she explained. “But I’ve learned that I like the privacy of our relationship to a certain extent, as well as other parts of my life that are private like family, and our children one day. There’s a level of things I’m willing to share.”

The TikToker’s decision to keep her daughter off her social media despite her own life being very public is a growing trend among public figures. With more and more parents understanding the difficulties of growing up in the public eye, many are now choosing to keep their children free from publicity for as long as possible.

With their fame trickling down to their families, many celebrities have had to decide if their kids should be on social media or if they should be shielded from the public.

Matthew McConaughey and his wife Camila recently allowed their son to join social media for his 15th birthday. Although Instagram allows users to join as early as 13, they wanted to keep him off the site until he was secure in his identity.

“We’ve been preparing for this, talking about this for three years now,” McConaughey and his wife shared. “All his friends have had it for a long time, we’ve been holding out. [Levi] knows who he is. He’s knows what he’s going at. And [we] think he can handle it.”

Other celebrities have shared that they will likely keep their kids off social media forever.
