Lily Allen marries Sam Cooper & her pregnancy was confirmed


Here are some photos from Lily Allen’s wedding yesterday. The bride wore an enormous Delphine Manivet gown and a veil reminiscent of Princess Leia’s Star Wars hair. I rather like the top part of the gown – the lace is nice, and it flatters her upper half. But the bottom is hideous with that flare at the bottom. I guess there was a reason for the enormous gown – shortly after the ceremony, the wedding gown designer confirmed Lily’s pregnancy. Lily is probably really pissed about that. She hates when people talk about her bidness… until she doesn’t hate it. Anyway, Lily married her boyfriend of several years, Sam Cooper, and her pregnancy comes very soon after she lost her last pregnancy at six months, back in November. She had been engaged to Sam Cooper for a while, although she publicly fought anyone and everyone for talking about it.

Lily Allen has two things to smile about.

The singer, 26, married Sam Cooper at St. James the Great Church in Gloucestershire, England, on Saturday – and the newlyweds are expecting a baby, according to reports.

Dressed in a gown with long lace sleeves and a fishtail skirt by French designer Delphine Manivet, the bride was given away by her father, Keith Allen, and then carried a bouquet of white roses as she made her way out of the church with her new husband to a waiting car as a crowd cheered.

“It’s beautiful that she is pregnant, and I am very happy for her. She is very happy about that – it is something wonderful,” Manivet told British paper The Telegraph. “For me, and for her too, when you’re pregnant you want to show that, but also be respectful, so the dress was perfect for her for that moment.”

Cooper revealed the happy baby news to wedding guests, according to the U.K.’s Daily Mail.

A rep for Allen could not be reached.

The baby news comes seven months after Allen and Cooper announced her heartbreaking miscarriage.

The wedding, which took place in the village of Cranham in the English countryside, was no secret. Allen’s wedding date was leaked to the press by an unknown guest, who sent the save-the-date card to British newspapers in March.

On Friday, Allen and Cooper were spotted arriving at the church for their rehearsal. Allen’s dad, an actor and musician, was also spotted with a ukulele – perhaps planning to serenade the happy couple.

Cooper, a decorator and business owner, popped the question during a romantic getaway last Christmas.

Well, congratulations to Lily and Sam, for the wedding and for the pregnancy. I sincerely hope that Lily’s health keeps up and she has a quiet, uneventful, full-term pregnancy.

Here are some more photos from the wedding party yesterday. I think the groomsmen were in pink. And the girl in the boob dress is Lily’s sister, I think.

    LOL..boob dress, like Aniston’s!
    LA’s dress looks a little 1980 prom style but it suits her purpose, she’s so cute! I hope she stays well too.
    OMG to the groomsmen in pink, do you think they will ever wear that outfit after the wedding?

  2. Rita says:

    Congrats to the very pretty bride. Love the dolls hanging from the bouquet. As for the “boob dress”, let them puppies out. They’re sufficating!

  3. Christine says:

    Very happy for LA. She’s been through the ringer with her pregnancy losses and deserves to have whatever she wants: including groomsmen in pink.

  4. Blue says:

    Congrats to her. I really hope she makes it through this pregnancy. I can’t imagine going through 2 miscarriages, especially so publicly. But it’s nice to see that she hasn’t given up.

  5. Micki says:

    I wish her luck with this pregnancy and the family life in general.

  6. Crash2GO2 says:

    Best wishes to her with this pregnancy.

  7. Flounder says:

    Yay! I think the dress suits her.

  8. viper says:

    Looks like somebody was channeling Kate middletons wedding dress. Incidentally I do hope this pregnancy is successful; a still born and a miscarriage is traumatic and absolutely torture to any woman.

  9. brin says:

    Congratulations to them on their wedding and baby….hope all goes well!

  10. Launicaangelina says:

    I wish them well. Personally, the dress is is not my style but it suits her quirky style.

  11. Dhavy says:

    That boob dress!

    OMG it’s like watching an episode of “My Big Fat Gypsy Wedding”

  12. gemmaa says:

    WHAT is her sister doing to her boobs in that dress? Hideous, and she is so pretty normally. Hopefully it is just the angle :/
    I wonder did LA give the nod to the designer to speak of the pregnancy. If not….someone is about to get schooled. Get the popcorn out :D

  13. the original bellaluna says:

    Congrats to them! I truly hope she is able to carry her baby to term, and they are both healthy and happy.

    FYI, People Magazine: When one loses a child at more than 3 months of pregnancy, that is NOT a miscarriage. That is the death of a baby in utero. (From one who’s been there.)

    After what she’s been through with her pregnancies, it’s no wonder she wants to keep her news quiet. It’s devastating enough to go through in private.

  14. mauibound says:

    Loves me some big fat gypsy wedding!!!!!! Bwahahahah! It’s the best trainwreck i’ve seen in forever! good luck lilly!

  15. jc126 says:

    GOOD GRIEF – THAT DRESS! Horrifying! Who would go out in public like that?
    WRT Lily Allen, I am so hoping that this pregnancy is successful. I think I’d be in an unholy state of terror if I were her, after the stillbirth and prior miscarriage. Fingers crossed for her.

  16. Dhavy says:

    @mauibound-I know! it’s so trashy you can’t help but to want more!

  17. Mairead says:

    Aww she looks so radiant!

    I disagree on the veil/headpiece. It’s obvious that she’s going for a late Edwardian/1920s vibe. The groom’s three-piece suit is reminiscent of that era as well. I’d like the dress far more without that tier yoke around the hem. But yay for sleeves! :D

  18. Annie_Grey says:

    She’s looks adorable in the 1920′s style.
    The “Princess Leia” veil was very popular in it’s time.

  19. irishserra says:

    I’m not a fan of the styles of the bride and groom, but I am just so happy for both of them, especially Lily. I hope she finally gets what she wants and I wish her the best in her pregnancy.

  20. lucy2 says:

    Good luck to them.

    That boob dress is hilariously awful.

  21. Lucy says:

    If for the theme of the wedding they were going for was ‘really horrible’ they did it perfectly…that boob dress is just…I don’t even have the words…anyway I wish her a successful pregnancy and a healthy baby…

  22. Anne says:

    Thanks for the info re the 1920s. I was baffled when I first saw this dress. I now see what she was hoping to achieve. It’s hideous though. Sorry.

  23. gee_gee says:

    I am so happy for her and wish her the best. I know she’s had a rough time with the miscarriages and relationships. She looks beautiful. Congrats Lily.

  24. photo jojo says:

    I wish her all the best. She’s had a rocky road.

  25. KsGirl says:

    I LOVE that dress. LOOOOVE. And best of luck to them on their pregnancy, I really hope everything goes well.

  26. Tassi says:

    wishing Lily and her new husband all the best & an uneventful healthy pregnancy.

  27. kwoww says:

    i hope she has a happy healthy pregnancy…and i love her dress. her sister, on the other hand…you know, “the taller and prettier one”..her dress is trashy.

  28. Becky says:

    Good for her! She certainly has been through alot. Best wishes for a happy marriage and healthy baby!

    In terms of her sister’s dress, that’s beyond tacky. What an obnoxious thing to wear to a wedding (particulary your sister’s wedding).

  29. thegorilla says:

    i really like her, and i like how the bouquet has some blue and peachy colors in it, i think its pretty – i hope her pregnancy goes well for her, i really do.

  30. Solveig says:

    I wish her all the best, especially to get rid of her ridiculous sister.

  31. Nanea says:

    My great-grandmother had a dress like that when she got married in 1922. Her veil was nicer though, without those Leia-like earmuffs, and the dress didn’t have a V-neck. She was pregnant too.

    All the best to Lily and Sam for a healthy baby!

  32. Isabel says:

    The poor thing. I’m sure the last thing she wants is to have her pregnancy made public. She’s been through so much with that struggle…and I can’t imagine losing a baby at 6 months. I truly can’t.

    All the best to her…God love her!

  33. gee says:

    Her dress is beautiful, he looks sharp as hell, and I wish them the best. I love Lily Allen so much.

  34. Girafe99 says:

    I really like the veil, she looks really pretty, she has my best wishes for the marriage and the baby

  35. Fuzzy Cat says:

    She looks beautiful and though I don’t know her personally I wish her well, she has been through so much.

  36. carrie says:

    congrats and congrats! i hope the better for them and she looks radiant

  37. OtherChris says:

    I like the dress, mostly because it’s kind of retro and completely different. And what a shock, a bride who didn’t walk down the aisle with her rack hanging out.

    Good luck to them and to the baby too!

  38. elizabeth says:

    The wedding dress is very Edwardian and I love it. I would kick my sister out of the family for that boob-tastic dress though. It really is tacky!

  39. JulieM says:

    I will add to the chorus of dress praise. I think she looks great and I love the retro flair. Not every bride in the world has to wear a skin tight strapless mermaid dress to look fashionable. Definitely not the cookie cutter bride look. Good for her.

  40. kira says:

    I really like the dress and best of luck to her.

    Oh my, her sister has a killer rack. But that dress is kinda tacky and looks uncomfortable.

  41. Brittany says:


    Wow, your great-grandmother must have been a pretty cool lady to not be afraid of the social stigma of the time, which I assume must have been pretty bad!

    Lily’s sister… can we talk about her teeth? Yikes!

    I hope everything works out well for Lily! :)

  42. Brittany says:

    In the very top pic, does anyone else think that Lily looks like Natalie Portman from the side?

    Random observation…

  43. chasingadalia says:

    Congrats and best wishes for the lovely couple.

    Don’t hate me for hating that dress?

  44. Devon says:

    I love her dress. If I was to get married again, I would go for a more retro look. I love the 50s retro vibe going on here. Here’s a link to my dress: and while I still love it, I now wish I’d gone for something different.

    Congratulations to her. She deserves every bit of happiness coming her way. I am a huge fan of her music and her in general. She sometimes says completely daft things but who the hell doesn’t? I just love her. Congrats Lily and Sam!

  45. MollyB says:

    I read in another publication that the groom announced the pregnancy at the wedding dinner, so I’m sure it was going to come out. Actually, the first time I saw pictures of her in the dress, I thought that she looked pregnant. I wish her all the best. Pregnancy loss is a curse I wouldn’t wish on any woman. My baby girl is light of my life after two years of loss.

  46. ThirdChris says:

    I’m really disappointed that the media keeps referring to her stillbirth as a miscarriage. I hope and pray her pregnancy is a healthy one and wish her well.

    @original bellaluna. I’ve been there too. *hug* My daughter will have been gone 5 years in July. I ache for her.

  47. ZenB!tch says:

    Dress – she looks like she is making her first communion

    Lily – I hope her pregnancy takes this time.

  48. Andie B says:

    The dress is not what I would wear, but it is not hideous, nor is it enormous. She looked very happy and is doing things her way. That’s what I would expect from Lily Allen. I really hope it all goes well with this pregnancy. As for her sister wearing that ‘boob’ dress. If one of my sisters had turned up at my wedding dressed like that, I would have been extremely faffed off. The bride should be the centre of attention, not her sister’s chest.

  49. Charlotte says:

    That boob dress is so awful. How can you not know that you look ridiculous?

  50. tracking says:

    She’s glowing, so pretty and happy. Such a strong young lady. Praying that she has a healthy pregnancy this time around.

  51. courtney says:

    @Gee_Gee Lily’s second loss was a still born as she was 6 1/2 months pregnant when the baby stopped developing. yes both are devstating and the parents to be carry that hurt for the rest of their lives even after they have children

  52. skilo says:

    God Bless Lily. I hope this time is magical for her. I wish her a healthy baby and a happy life.

  53. nelly says:

    That is a truly ugly dress, veil and flowers.

  54. original kate says:

    i think lily looks very pretty – i like the edwardian themed for her personal life, i’m not gonna harsh on her because she has had a hellish time lately. good luck to her.

  55. RobN says:

    Sam looks very sharp and I can only imagine that he looked around at the rest of these people and just thought “WTF?”

  56. Faye says:

    Congratulations! I wish them the best and I hope her pregnancy goes well.
