Lily Allen ‘Really Excited’ to Finally Look Pregnant

It’s out with the old and in with the new for Lily Allen. And the singer — who’s expecting her first child with Sam Cooper this winter — couldn’t be happier with her lifestyle changes.

“I’m enjoying procreating,” Allen, 25, tells The Mirror. “I’m not missing smoking, drinking and going out. It’s made me realize a lot about some people I used to hang out with.”

In fact, adds the expectant mama, impending motherhood has left her wincing at her past.

“I still have to be around some of them when they’re drunk and I’m like, ‘Is that what we’re like?’ Being sober has opened my eyes a lot,” she reveals, noting the pregnancy has had an equally profound effect on her body image.

“My boobs are incredible. I’m a 34D now. I’ve never had that size before,” she laughs. “I’m actually really excited now I actually look pregnant. My body’s changing all the time and I’ve got to just embrace it.”

And with the changes comes a new wardrobe. “I’ve been wearing sexy maternity tights. I’m so glamorous it’s unreal!” Allen jokes.

Noting that “being a mother is something I’ve wanted for a very long time,” Allen reveals she plans to enjoy each second of her life with baby — and let nature work out the rest.

“I won’t be one of those celebrities that pop a baby out and four weeks later I’m back to normal,” she states. “I’ll disappear into my country house … and be hidden from view for as long as I can.”

I wish Lily all the best. It’s nice to see her so happy after she struggled!

Mrs. R. on

I wish her the best too… but she strikes me as immature, and I just hope that she REALLY knows what she’s getting into.

I hope motherhood inspires some kick-a** songs! I love her music and all the barbs she aims at ex-boyfriends might soon get aimed at stinky diapers and colic. I look forward to seeing the Little Lily when s/he arrives!

Mallory on

Sounds like pregnancy/motherhood is already having a huge positive effect on Lily! I wish her all the best, that she continues to have a healthy pregnancy and then a healthy baby!

Allie-Rose on

I don’t see how Lily’s comments can make her come off as immature. quite the contrary, she sounds like she’s grown up a lot.

Best of luck to Lily and Sam.

Daisy! on

I think Lily is prepared for motherhood. She seems mature and she has a large number of siblings, the youngest only a toddler, so I’m sure she has had plenty of experience.

Lacey on

Lily going to be a wonderful mother. I wish her all the best!

I think Mrs. R is referring to Lily in general, not just her comments here. I’ve always found her extremely immature, but she sounds like she’s using this pregnancy to contemplate her life so far and change for the better. Not everyone is willing to do that, so she deserves credit for that imo.

I laughed at what she said about being around her drunk friends-I think we’ve all had the experience of being the only sober person in the room watching everyone else have sloppy fun, and it really does cause you to grow up. I wish her a healthy pregnancy and happy baby.

This young lady physically resembles me so much when I was young that it is eery when I see her photos.

I truly do hope she does not smoke or do anything else that’s foolish around her baby or during her pregnancy.

I wish her the best.

Lila on

Glad she realizes that drinking, partying and smoking are not good for the baby! Sounds like she is making good choices and getting her priorities in order. Motherhood changed Nicole Richie, sounds like she is growing up because of it also.
