Lily Allen's youngest child can already twerk.

The 'Smile' hitmaker, who has two kids, Ethel, two, and 19-month-old Marnie with husband Sam Cooper, revealed her second daughter has already mastered the technique of the eye-catching dance move.

When asked by radio presenter Jonathan Ross whether either of her children have shown a talent for performing, she said: ''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 to radio host Jonathan, who said he didn't ''know if I would have admitted that in public, if one of my kids started twerking at two or three''.

Speaking on Radio 2, Lily added: ''It's not a real twerk, you know, it's just that she's got some sort of waist action.''

While Lily's youngest Marnie looks destined for a glittering career if her twerking is anything to go by, the 29-year-old singer insisted she would not pressure her children to pursue a career within the showbiz industry and would support them in whatever they wanted to do.

She added: ''I don't believe people are meant to be steered anywhere. 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.''
