Lily Allen denies being pregnant, but she really looks bumpy


These are some photos of a heavier-looking Lily Allen last week in London. These photos would have been enough for me to think that Lily might be pregnant, but The Daily Mail also has these photos – Lily over the weekend looking even more bump-y. Of course, The Daily Mail also points out that Lily tweeted her denial about being knocked up, but CB and I think that she probably is, and she’s just not ready to announce it yet. Back in late 2007/early 2008, Lily was pregnant, and she suffered a miscarriage. After that, she spoke about wanting children often, and late last year she announced she was taking one to two years off, perhaps to start a family. I think it’s on.

She’s been talking about starting a family since the beginning of the year. But Lily Allen has denied she is pregnant after pictures emerged of her sporting a suspicious-looking bump under her dress this weekend. The 25-year-old singer was spotted in Central London with her belly appearing to protrude more than usual.

However, Lily took to her Twitter account to state quite categorically: ‘I’m not pregnant.’

The sighting comes just days after her announcement to leave the music scene and focus on starting a family with her boyfriend Sam Cooper.

She said: ‘I’d like to have a child within a year. It’ll be a minimum of four or five years before I make a record again. I don’t think that mixes well with the idea of settling down and having children, which is ultimately my goal and more of a priority than flying around the world.’

Allen told Absolute Radio: ‘I’d want to be really hands-on for the first two or three years of having a little one. I don’t want to leave them.’

And in, January during an appearance at the Big Day Out event in Australia, she told the festival crowd ‘I want to have a baby’.

After suffering from a miscarriage three years ago with ex boyfriend Ed Simons, Allen has made it well known that settling down and raising a family away from the media spotlight is her goal. Lily has been dating Sam Cooper, 44, since July last year. She is said to have become enamored with the decorator’s down-to-earth manner.

Last year a source told The Sun newspaper: ‘Lil is tired of only ever being involved with well-known blokes. She wanted to go out with someone her own age who isn’t involved in music or the media. Sam is really down to earth. He grafts hard for a living as a painter and decorator and leads a totally normal life. Lily is completely smitten with him. They have known each other for a while but have only just started dating properly.’

If she is knocked up, congratulations to her and to her boyfriend. If she’s not, I guess she’s just been enjoying her sabbatical with cheese fries and donuts, and why not? That’s what I would do if I had some time off. Not so much with the cheese fries, but definitely with Chinese food and corn chips. Can you tell that I’m hungry? Mmm… corn chips.

    Yeah, betcha she is pregnant. Looks like she’s hiding something.

    Also Kaiser, do you know if y’all are going to run a piece today on the passing of metal legend Ronnie James Dio?

  2. Schnauzers!!!! says:

    I don’t really think she looks bumpy…I think she’s just wearing ill-fitting clothing and is normal sized. (No, not super sized, normal sized.)

  3. Kaiser says:

    I wasn’t going to, no. I was probably going to include him in the links, but I don’t really know who he was and CB won’t be working until later, if at all today.

  4. Lemon Drops says:

    Even if she is pregnant, ENOUGH with the baby bump watches. If she is pregnant, she can’t announce it yet, especially because of her previous miscarriage. Either way let’s be considerate. Whether she’s pregnant or gaining weight, let’s just let her be.

  5. Melanie says:

    She looks stunning in these pics, especially the one where she’s got her arms folded

    If she is knocked up, then I don’t blame her for saying she’s not after the last time.

  6. KJ says:

    I def agree with Lemon Drops. I HATE baby bump watches more than most celebrity news stories. Most of the time I find celeb news funny or inane, something to kill time during the day, but I think speculating on pregnancies is so invasive and disrespectful. The woman had a MISCARRIAGE for gods sake. So what if she doesn’t want to announce it? Why should we write stories about it, which essentially is an attempt by celebrity journalists to pressure her into admitting something she may not be ready to share with the world. Having a baby is a personal thing, and I really detest when people start asking, assuming, speculating and worst of all, feeling entitled to an answer (not in regards to this site, celebitchy is usually pretty good about not feeling entitled to celeb confirmations, I’m more referring to the perez hiltons of the world who think that fame means everyone should have access to every aspect of your life).

    I dunno, it just seems silly. Either wait for her to confirm or leave it alone. Poor girl probably doesn’t want to jinx this one 🙁

  7. Feebee says:

    Am I getting old and cranky because I’m getting annoyed with bump watches? I’m finding them insulting and an invasion of privacy. Being newly pregnant is such a nerve racking time as well as being either happy or panicked depending on your situation. Then, as others have mentioned the devastation of miscarriage. We really need to lay off.

  8. lena says:

    I think this is a little insensitive given that she previously miscarried. It’s wrong to spectulate on this one.

  9. CaramelKiss says:

    ‘Lil is tired of only ever being involved with well-known blokes. She wanted to go out with someone her own age who isn’t involved in music or the media.
    How is 44 the same age as 25? I’m just sayin… I mean I get she wants to be out of the spotlight and she gets 1 cool point for that but this whole notion of daying someone her own age is just laughable.

  10. jc126 says:

    I don’t see it at all.
    I think it’s getting really hard to judge bumps just by pictures, too – I think tabs et al. deliberately run photos that look the most pregnant. I think you have to see the woman in question in person to REALLY tell in the early stages.
    Most of these “baby bump” pics on all celebs are probably bad angles, flab, or constipation.

  11. GatsbyGal says:

    @Kaiser – That’s a shame. ):

  12. juicyjackie says:

    She probably had a night on the beer and kebab on the way home and is just bloated (I know I was on sunday morning!!)

    Kaiser – yeah I think pretty much everyone thinks babywatches are silly and intrusive – fail!!

  13. JJ says:

    Agreed – I hate the “bump watches.” Invasive, rude.

    And how in the world can you tell with that dress she’s wearing?

  14. Constance says:

    She’s always fought with herself over her weight. Maybe she’s just comfy. I would be if I was trying to stay out of the lights and cameras.

  15. snowball says:

    Well, that’s a bad dress choice. Knowing you’ll probably get photographed, the wrong thing to wear when people are already speculating about a pregnancy is a dress that’s barely able to close across your middle and had awful pleats over your stomach.

    But yeah, having had a couple first trimester miscarriages, those early baby bump watches are ooky (but I do obsess over whether or not I see one on Jen Garner for some reason).

  16. danielle says:

    Ooky and invasive are good words.

  17. gemmaa says:

    Has she been knocking back the cocktails and chain smoking recently? I do not know but surely the answer lies there!

  18. Ben says:


    Come on, that quote was from some ‘friend’ (probably imaginary) to a filthy British rag. Our tabloids are the WORST, and they’re the reason US tabs are getting down and dirty.

    That quote, about her wanting someone her own age, also mentioned her boyfriend’s name. So obviously some gutter-hack just didn’t take the time to google the BF.

    I have to agree with everyone else… it’s a little odd to write articles on a possible pregnancy so early on. Especially considering Lily (who is SO young) has already endured a miscarriage.

  19. mark says:

    She looks great in normal clothes. Where abouts in London is this?

  20. Dani says:

    Pregnant? Please. She’s wearing a baggy shirt. Just because you’re skinny, it doesn’t mean you have to always wear form fitting clothes. The minute someone wears a shirt thats a size bigger than their usually, people call pregnant.

    And it’s disappointing the instead of writing about a rock legend passing away, Ronnie James Dio, you’re writing articles about Justin Bieber getting a tattoo and Lily Allen wearing a loose shirt. RJD was a legend, and was a huge talent and EARNED his fame, yet your front page is dedicated to teeny bopper pop stars that probably won’t even last a year. It’s pretty insulting. RDJ had way more talent and was a much bigger star than the people you’re writing just plain ridiculous and throw away articles about.

    And I saw you say that you didn’t write about him because you didn’t know who he was, but that’s not really an excuse either. You could have easily taken 2 minutes to go google him and get enough to write an article/tribute on. But instead time was spent on these losers. It’s just depressing how the talented people are the ones who get shunned. Most people would rather read his tribute page than about Sarah Jessica Parker and her son, and Jada Pinkett Smiths sex life.


  21. jc126 says:

    Um, okay, I guess there haven’t been enough Ronnie James Dio tributes, but why would you expect one on Celebitchy? It’s current celebrity gossip, not sad stuff, generally.
    Hey here’s a prediction – Alanis Morrissette is pregnant. Her cleavage looked inflated in that early pregnancy way in a pic I just saw. You read it here first!
    Oh, and God rest Ronnie James Dio’s soul, naturally.
