Lily Allen: I Spend Plenty of Time with My Kiddos!

She’s never been a huge fan of publicizing her private life, and to that end Lily Allen rarely takes her children out for her appearances.

After a slew of folks criticized her for supposedly neglecting her two youngsters, the “Smile” songstress took to her Twitter account to set the record straight.

Allen tweeted, "good morning, i'm getting a lot of nasty messages in my feed about my children. Thank you for your concern, but i assure you they are fine.”

She added, "and are never far away, you just don't see them in pictures because i don't tote them around like accessories.”

Lily is no stranger to defending herself via social media- after Katie Hopkins slammed her for having a famous dad and gaining weight during pregnancy, Allen fired back, “Yes, after tragically losing a child so late in to my pregnancy I may have gained a few pounds, I am one of many that find comfort in food. The two pregnancies that followed were terrifying because of what had happened before and I was pretty much on bed rest for 20 months.”

“I wasn't exercising because I didn't want to take any risks and funnily enough, the survival of my children felt more important than being thin. Can somebody tell me what Katie Hopkins does except go on telly slagging off girls half her age?”
