So happy for Lily. I hope that this pregnancy is a healthy and happy one.
Following weeks of speculation, the 25-year-old singer finally broke the news after her three-month scan.
She told The Sun: ‘It brings me great pleasure to tell you that Sam and I are expecting our first child. It goes without saying we are both absolutely delighted.’
Her pregnancy comes after the singer cancelled various summer gigs and talked about giving up her music career for a quiet family life.
Lily’s father Keith Allen also fuelled speculation over recent months, by saying she intended to take an extended bread from her pop career.
The Smile singer may have been unlucky in love in the past but says Sam, who runs a decorating company, is ‘the love of my life’ and ‘there’s nothing about him that annoys me.’
‘He’s not impressed by what I do. I’ve been with guys and seen them looking in the mirror before they walk out of the door with me.
‘That makes me feel sick because I know it’s not just me they’re interested in…. Sam treats me differently. He’s told me he’ll look after me forever.’
In 2008, Lily suffered a miscarriage after becoming pregnant by the Chemical Brothers’ Ed Simons.
She is taking every extra precaution during this pregnancy and pulled out of her planned performance of Spain’s Benicassim festival in August.
