Mum-of-two respects her body


Lily Allen doesn’t worry about her body as much since becoming a mum.

The Somewhere Only We Know singer has had some hang-ups about her figure in the past but is more comfortable with it after giving birth to daughters Ethel, 2, and Marnie, 1.

‘Now I know what the female body is capable of I have a lot more respect for it,’ says Lily, 28.

‘My wide hips are for squeezing babies out of.’

But Lily, who married husband Sam Cooper in 2011, doesn’t want to discuss her body anymore as she’s concerned about the effect it’s having.

‘The longer we talk about it,’ the mum-of-two tells the The Observer Magaine, ‘the longer it’s allowed to be something to talk about.’
