Jesus, this news just made me so sad this morning. Lily Allen and her boyfriend just confirmed that she suffered a miscarriage (some are saying the baby was stillborn). Lily was six months pregnant, and this is her second miscarriage in two years time. Back in September, after she confirmed the pregnancy, she spoke candidly about the complications she suffered in the first trimester – there was bleeding, and Lily said that she was “living in fear” that she wouldn’t be able to carry to term.
Lily Allen has again suffered the heartbreak of losing a baby during pregnancy.
“It is with great sadness that we have to confirm that Lily Allen and Sam Cooper have lost their baby,” the British singer’s rep tells PEOPLE in a statement. “The couple ask that their privacy be respected and that they be left alone at this deeply distressing time. No further comment will be made.”
Allen, 25, announced a few weeks ago that the baby, a boy, was due in January. This is her second such heartbreak – coming almost three years after she suffered a miscarriage during her relationship with musician Ed Simons.
Allen and Cooper, an upmarket decorator, had announced their pregnancy in August. Allen had also Tweeted a pic of herself excitedly holding up a newspaper with the good news.
Allen has spoken of having children as “ultimately my main goal” in life.
Poor Lily. I don’t really have anything to say other than that. Poor girl. She must be absolutely devastated.
