Meghan Trainor used to pretend she had diarrhoea so she could leave parties early.

The 30-year-old star, who has children Riley, three, and 11-month-old Barry with husband Daryl Sabara, admitted she used to present she had bowel issues if she wanted to duck out of a gathering, but now she puts the blame on her children.

She told the 'Smallzy's Surgery' podcast: "The greatest thing ever is when you have kids you can be like, 'Oh the baby needs me I gotta go.'

"I used to be like, 'Oh no I have diarrhea'. And now the children are a good excuse now!"

Meghan made the confession during a game based on her single 'Been Like This' where she was asked to reveal if she'd done a certain thing or not.

As well as admitting she'd left parties early, she also revealed she has "left people on read" without responding to their messages.

She said: "I've been like that but on accident - and some on purpose."

The 'Dear Future Husband' hitmaker - who insisted she is "never" late and "always on time" - was also asked if she has a fake social media profile to stalk people or leave comments under a pseudonym.

She replied: "Never, and I have never left a rude comment. I'm too afraid and I would never wanna hurt someone like that."

However, Meghan admitted there were times when she wished she could respond to people anonymously, but it's usually when trolls have been "so mean" online.

She said: "Only when they're being so mean to me, or they're like, 'All your songs sound the same.'"

But she added: "I'm not gonna respond because then they win!"

Meanwhile, Meghan recently revealed she is inspired by being a parent, and finds her sons to be a huge source of drive and pride.

She told the Sunday Mirror newspaper: “I had the best year of my career after my baby – because he inspired me to be the best version of me.

“Every morning I would walk in, just stare at him for about 45 minutes and think, ‘I’m going to get the healthiest I’ve ever been, be the most motivated, write the best songs I’ve ever written.

“‘I’m going to work my a*** off to show you that you can have it all, and you can live your dreams.' "
