Singer's surprised how much she's changed


Lily Allen has admitted that she used to be quite self-centred.

The Somewhere Only We Know singer has always been feisty but she thinks she’s calmed down since welcoming daughters Ethel, 2, and Marnie, 11 months, with husband Sam Cooper.

‘I’m not really that kind of person anymore,’ says Lily, 28.

‘I think when you have children and realise everyone is someone else’s child… you just don’t think like that. Maybe that’s what’s changed me.

‘My drive is very different. Before I was selfish, just doing things for myself really and this time I’m doing it for my kids.’

Lily’s quite taken aback at just how much motherhood has affected her life.

‘It’s amazing, just everything changes,’ the mum-of-two tells the Mirror.

‘Four years ago if someone had asked me what my greatest achievement was I would have said my four Ivor Novellos.

‘And now I’d say my children. It’s a completely different ball game.’
