Keith Allen confirms Lily is expecting her second baby

Monday July 16, 2012

Keith Allen has confirmed that his daughter Lily Allen is pregnant with her second child.

The 27-year-old singer - who welcomed daughter Ethel Mary with husband Sam Cooper last November - was reported to be pregnant by a Sunday newspaper earlier this month.

Lily had previously suggested her good news on Twitter, but it remained unconfirmed until her actor father was asked about the rumours by Ruth Langsford on This Morning.

He said: "Yes, she is pregnant," but didn't say any more.

Lily lost a baby six months into a pregnancy in 2010 and suffered a miscarriage in 2008.

The Smile singer recently revealed she was working on a new album, but she has often said she would like to retire from music and focus on having a family.

She previously told People: "I just want to have babies and live in the countryside, that's my goal really.

"I'm not a careerist, what I really want is to be a mum. I am driven, but that drive goes as far as keeping a roof over my head and having a routine."
