‘My Babies Are A Touchy Subject’: Lily Allen Hits Back At Katie Hopkins After Pregnancy Weight Comments

Section: Celebrity Mums

Smile singer Lily Allen takes to Twitter after Katie Hopkins lets loose about her weight and career

Ah, Lily Allen, we salute you. After finding out about a Katie Hopkins rant targeted at her, the 28-year-old singer took to social media to respond.
In a video for heatworld, the outspoken (erm, understatement) Katie was asked what she thought of a host of famous faces, including Lily.
‘I quite liked her when she was singing and interesting, and then she went off to tell us all about being a mother,’ she said.
‘She was removing herself from the spotlight because she wanted to be a mother, and that largely involved, I think, gaining two stone and looking pretty hideous.’
Katie then added that she reckoned Lily’s only famous because of her well-know dad, comedian and actor Keith Allen.
OK, then. Needless to say, Lily hit back with a series of tweets, including…
‘Yes, after tragically losing a child so late into my pregnancy I may have gained a few pounds, I am one of many that find comfort in food’
‘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’
‘Oh, and whilst “weighing me up”, Fat shaming, you were a stone out, I gained 3 not 2. And hey, look I’m on the cover of Elle this month!’

The singer has since deleted the tweets, saying, ‘Sorry about that, but my babies are a touchy subject and I gave her exactly what she wanted by responding. I am now going to delete it all.’
But she left one nice last cracking shot – in the form of a gorgeous Instagram photo of herself captioned, ‘Just going to the shop, want anything Katie?’
Enough said.
