Lily Allen is three months pregnant. Her rep confirms the news, following the initial report the singer gave to The Sun UK. It was revealed, hours ago, in the Sun online and on the print edition’s front page, that Allen, 25, was pregnant with her boyfriend Sam Cooper’s baby. I knew of it, about 12 hours ago, I guess. But, I didn’t report it as even something ‘confirmed’ in The Sun often turns out not to be true/ what it seems. Also, yesterday, I checked Allen’s Twitter and the most recent message at the time said simply ‘Nothing to share’. Implying, perhaps, I thought, the report was untrue. Seems she was just being cryptic, as she’s updated again today with a tweet reading ‘Not quite front page worthy but anyways… surreal’, along with a picture of herself holding up her front page. In addition, we get a statement from her rep today saying ‘Lily Allen and Sam Cooper are very happy to confirm that Lily is expecting their first child’. This is especially great news, as Allen was unfortunate enough to suffer a miscarriage with former boyfriend Ed Simons of the Chemical Brothers, back in 2008. She has said she wants time out of the spotlight to raise a family, and she feels ready as her own mother had her ‘when she was 23′. Photos of Allen and Cooper are below.
