Lily Allen says ‘my children ruined my career’ as she hits back at idea that ‘you can have it all’

Lily Allen declared that having her daughters “totally ruined” her “pop stardom” in a candid interview about her career and motherhood. 

In a new interview, Lily Allen opened up about a rather taboo subject as she spoke about how balancing motherhood with her life as a music icon “totally ruined” her career. Lily Allen is the mother of two daughters, Ethel who was born in 2011, and Marnie, who she had in 2013. Lily shares custody of the two girls with her ex-husband Sam Cooper after they amicably split back in 2016.
