Lilly Allen is pregnant with her first child, a rep for the British singer confirmed in a press statement on Thursday. Allen, 25, and boyfriend Sam Cooper, 32, have been dating for just over a year. Allen has called Cooper –Â a “normal bloke” who owns a building company –Â “the love of my life.”
“Lily Allen and Sam Cooper are very happy to confirm that Lily is expecting their first child,” her rep said in a press statement. The British songstress is reportedly three months along. Â “Lily’s professional commitments will carry on as normal, including a scheduled performance at Big Chill this weekend.”
Allen previously announced she was pregnant in December, 2007 with the child of Chemical Brothers‘ Ed Simons. Sadly she suffered a miscarriage just a month later.
“It goes without saying we are both absolutely delighted,” Allen told The Sun about the new baby on the way.
