This is so sad. British singer Lily Allen lost her unborn baby this weekend.
Lily Allen’s spokesman says the singer has suffered a miscarriage six months into her pregnancy.
Publicist Murray Chalmers said Monday that “it is with great sadness that we have to confirm that Lily Allen and Sam Cooper have lost their baby.”
He says Allen and Cooper are asking for privacy at a “deeply distressing time.”
Allen announced in early August that she was three months pregnant.
The 25-year-old singer, whose hits include “Smile” and “The Fear,” had an earlier miscarriage in 2008.
She has been dating 32-year-old painter and decorator Cooper for more than a year.
Poor Lily… A miscarriage is an awful thing for any woman to go through, however, if there’s anything that she can take solace in, it’s the fact that while many pregnancies end in miscarriage, women who experience miscarriage often go on to have healthy pregnancies later.
So this doesn’t mean that she can’t go on to successfully carry a child to full term, but losing another baby so soon after her last pregnancy is probably weighing on her heavily.
She was so far along too. That’s got to be incredibly hard.
