Lily Allen may be expecting baby number 2 with hubby Sam Cooper, just months since giving birth to her first daughter, Ethel Mary. The couple are said to be “over the moon” over the expansion of their family sources tell The Mirror. The ‘surprise’ baby is due in December.
Thrilled Lily Allen is expecting her second baby – months after giving birth to daughter Ethel Mary.
Lily, 25, had her three-month scan this week and was told all was well.
The star and husband Sam Cooper are said to be “over the moon” at having another child on the way. The birth is due in December – a year since she and artist Sam, 34, welcomed Ethel into the world.
A friend said: “Lily has started telling her friends and everybody in her close circle is so excited for her.
“It was a surprise but Lily and Sam are thrilled. The pair of them have loved every minute of parenthood so far and wanted to expand their brood quickly. So it’s great timing.”
The news comes just two years after the singer – who has had hits with Smile, LDN and The Fear – tragically lost her baby boy when she was six months pregnant.
Lily also had a miscarriage in 2008 when she was dating Chemical Brothers star Ed Simons.
She has told friends she is surprised nobody has guessed she was expecting due to the size of her bump, especially after her appearance with Professor Green in front of thousands of fans at Manchester’s Heaton Park last weekend.
A pal confided: “Lily was sure people were going to cotton on to the fact she had a pregnancy bump but she seemed to get away with it thanks to wearing very baggy clothing.
“Her bump has popped out very early – far earlier than the last pregnancy. She’s been joking she feels six months pregnant already.”
Lily is carrying on with plans to make a new album of original music – her first since stepping away from the industry two years ago to start a family. She aims to have it ready for release in spring, months after the birth.
Lily tweeted last month that she was back in the studio with her old collaborator and hit-maker Greg Kurstin.
She said: “You will be pleased to know that i am currently in the f**king studio with @GregKurstin. No big deal really, i’m just throwing s**t at the wall and seeing if anything sticks.”
Kurstin worked with Lily on her first two albums and has collaborated with Kelly Clarkson and Marina And The Diamonds.
Lily recently finished working on the score for the Bridget Jones’s Diary West End musical. She will spend the rest of the summer working on her album, then rest before the birth.
“Lily’s got lots on her plate right now,” her friend said. “She’s been working on a handful of songs already and has lots more ideas of what she wants to do.
“Bridget Jones was an amazing and different project for her but everything that has happened to her over the past two years has been incredibly inspiring. So it’s time for her to start recording and getting the record together.
“But like everything in her life, work comes second to Sam, Ethel and now their bump. She’s just so excited.”
