I love my children but they ruined my career: Lily Allen SAYS after choosing motherhood over pop-stardom


Lily Allen was one of London’s most notorious party girls until she moved to the country and had children in 2011.

But now she has admitted her two daughters have ‘totally ruined’ her pop career because she chose to prioritise them instead of work – insisting, ‘You can’t have it all’…. having some regrets, now?

The singer-turned-actress, 38, said she believes women have to decide whether to put their children or their career first, saying she chose the former.

‘My children ruined my career. I love them and they complete me, but in terms of pop-stardom, they totally ruined it,’ she confessed.

‘I get really annoyed when people say you can have it all because, quite frankly, you can’t.

Talks About Her Childhood

Some people choose their career over their children and that’s their prerogative, but my parents were quite absent when I was a kid.

‘I feel like it left some nasty scars that I’m not willing to repeat on mine.’

Her Life Took a Turn at 4

Lily’s father is actor Keith Allen, 70, who walked out on her film producer mother Alison Owen, 63, when Lily was four years old.

Lily has now said that she ‘chose to step back and concentrate on my children’ and she’s glad that she has as ‘they’re pretty well-rounded.’

About Her Primary Family

The Smile singer shares two daughters Ethel Mary, 12, and Marnie Rose, 10, with her ex-husband builder Sam Cooper, 45, but released her last studio album No Shame in 2018.

Lily now lives in New York with her children and new husband, Stranger Things star David Harbour, 48, whom she married in 2020 and has turned her hand to acting.

She said: ‘I was about two years sober, I’d just moved to New York.

‘A big part of sobriety is surrendering and letting God – in whatever way you want to believe in that – have a plan for you.’
