Lily Allen Admits Her 19-Month-Old Daughter Marnie Likes Twerking


Lily Allen has revealed her youngest daughter, Marnie, can already twerk.

Marnie may be just 19 months old, but she's already mastered Miley Cyrus's signature dance move, according to Lily.

When the 29-year-old singer was asked by Jonathan Ross whether either Marnie, or her two-year-old sister Ethel, have a talent for performing, she replied:

"Yes, actually. They do. The eldest one loves singing in her cot for about an hour every night before she goes to bed. The other one can actually twerk already."

The revelation came as a surprise for Jonathan, who said he didn't know if he 'would have admitted that in public, if one of my kids started twerking at two or three'.

"It's not a real twerk, you know," Lily explained while on Jonathan's BBC Radio 2 show. "It's just that she's got some sort of waist action."

Marnie may have picked up the move when she and Ethel joined their mum on tour with Miley Cyrus in America earlier this year.

Lily was quick to point out that despite her daughters' talents she won't be pressuring either of them to pursue a career in show business.

"I don't believe people are meant to be steered anywhere," she said. "I believe people are meant to make their own decisions and choices in life, and as a loving parent I will assist them and help them with what I can."
