One of my favourite people in show business is the out spoken and ballsy Lilly Allen or more recently known as Lily Rose Cooper, I have always admired her ability to overcome body image issues and her honest ‘I don’t give a f**k attitude.
I have followed her career since I was a teenager and have always related to her, she has been through heart break, scrutiny, body image issues and she always seems to come out smiling.
Although Lily can be very controversial and has owned up to misbehaving during her early 20′s she has always remained a role model to young girls just by being real!
I was so please when she give birth to her first daughter Ethel in 2011. This morning Lily announced via twitter that she had given birth to her second child baby girl Marnie Rose.
The singer turned to twitter to express her thanks to friends and fans for their support and well meaning messages saying;
“Quite overwhelmed by all the well wishing going on, THANKYOU everybody.”
In the fashion and music industry we are surrounded by people who either seem to do no wrong and appear to look like super models from the moment the wake up or people who are constantly plastered over the media with break ups and scandels – normality is hard to come by.
it is so refreshing to see Lily doing things right, she keeps her dirty laundry to herself and doesn’t hide behind a façade – what you see is what you get.
Lily Rose Cooper’s non-compliance with guidelines set by the media sets a great example for young girls growing up in a society where image seems to be more important than health.
She is proof that there is a happy ending for every girl.
