Lily Allen Is Married – and Pregnant!

Lily Allen has two things to smile about.

The singer, 26, married Sam Cooper at St. James the Great Church in Gloucestershire, England, on Saturday — and the newlyweds are expecting a baby, her rep confirms.

Dressed in a gown with long lace sleeves and a fishtail skirt by French designer Delphine Manivet, the bride was given away by her father, and then made her way out of the church with her new husband to a waiting car as a crowd cheered.

“It’s beautiful that she is pregnant, and I am very happy for her. She is very happy about that — it is something wonderful,” Manivet told The Telegraph.

“For me, and for her too, when you’re pregnant you want to show that, but also be respectful, so the dress was perfect for her for that moment.”

Cooper revealed the happy baby news to wedding guests, according to the U.K.’s Daily Mail.

The baby news comes seven months after Allen and Cooper announced the heartbreaking loss of their son.

The wedding, which took place in the village of Cranham in the English countryside, was no secret. Allen’s wedding date was leaked to the press by an unknown guest, who sent the save-the-date card to British newspapers in March.

On Friday, Allen and Cooper were spotted arriving at the church for their rehearsal. Allen’s dad Keith Allen, an actor and musician, was also spotted with a ukulele — perhaps planning to serenade the happy couple.

Cooper, a decorator and business owner, popped the question during a romantic getaway last Christmas.

Awwww so awesome! Congrats to her on both accounts – her marriage and pregnancy! I pray that this one goes smoothly and she is holding a little miracle in a few months time. She deserves it!

meme on

I hope this pregnancy goes well for her.

Kelly on

after two awful miscarriages I really hope she is able to have this baby and all goes well for her. She looks beautiful in the wedding photo.. Congrats to them.

klutzy_girl on

Congratulations to Lily and Sam on both accounts! I really, really, really hope the pregnancy goes well this time!

Lau on

Oh man, good for her! I really hope everything goes well this time. It would break my heart if this pregnancy went wrong, and I’m not even a huge Lily fan.

Devon on

I love Lily’s music and I hope everything goes smoothly with his pregnancy. I have a friend who had a stillborn at 38 weeks and it’s such a heartbreaking thing to have happen. She deserves all the happiness in the world! Congratulations!

Tee on

I had figured she was pregnant when I first saw this wedding photo on another site. I’m praying that this baby is carried to term! After her miscarriages and still birth, I’m sure she’s pretty nervous. I know I would be! Hoping for a safe pregnancy and live birth!

Grace2 on

I wish her a happy and healthy marriage as well as a happy and healthy pregnancy. Congrats.

lifeasahouse on

Prayers for a successful pregnancy. congrats!

Alyssa on

I know it’s probably a misprint, but her second baby she lost was stillborn, not a miscarriage. She was due in January and lost her baby in November. I really hope she has a smooth and healthy pregnancy this time; she deserves it!

Olivia on

She will probably have a miscarriage or stillborn…just the facts that after 2 miscarriages…it’s likely again.

Sam & Freya's Mum on

All the best to Lily and her new hubby. Hoping it’s 3rd time lucky for her. She deserves a little bub to hold after her tragic losses in the past. Fingers crossed all goes well this time. What a double celebration for them!

B.J. on

I was thinking of her today, listening to her last album. I’m very happy for Lily and wish nothing but the very best.

MK on

Oh what great news I’m so happy for her, she seems like a really cool person.

I have to say I’m also nervous for her though, definitely wishing her the best!

missnorcal on

I think she is an amazing songwriter and a strong woman. I hope that she has a wonderful pregnancy that results in a joyful birth. She is so very deserving.

I like how her wedding veil with the side embellishments makes her look like Princess Leia. At least that was what came to my mind.

shannon on

I’m not a huge fan of her’s, to be honest. But, I do hope that the third time is the charm for her. Wishing her happiness in her marriage and well wishes for a healthy and smooth pregnancy that results in a healthy and happy child.

Caylee on

Let’s be more optimistic, Olivia! :-)

Sarah on

Olivia, well aren’t you little miss optimism.

Congratulations to Sam and Lily I wish them all the best! She looks beautiful.

Crystal on

CONGRATS Lily and Sam on your wedding and baby!! I’m praying that Lily will be able to not only carry this baby to term but deliver a healthy baby. Good Luck and God Bless! ♥

Rose on

Congrats to them, hoping for a healthy baby for them!

Emma on

Oh wow…why would you put yourself through this again?? I felt awful for her when she lost her baby at 6 months. If she loses another I cannot imagine what that would feel like. I think adoption would be a better route…

Emily on

Congratulations to Sam and Lily. Great news that she is now married and pregnant again, I will be crossing all my fingers and toes that she has a smooth and successful pregnancy this time round. You know what they say, third time lucky!

Nella on

I belive in life you have to be optimistic about things, otherwise most people wouldn’t bother trying hard to achieve at something they really want. Plus it definitely helps relieve stress when a person is more optimistic and somewhat positive about more difficult situations that happen in life.

I do wish Lily a healthy pregnancy and a healthy baby.It seems like she really wants to be a mother and I hope that wish comes true for her. I can’t even imagine how difficult it must be to go through miscarriages/stillbirths and how heartbreaking it can be, but I have a feeling she will have a healthy baby. Congrats to them both on the marriage and the pregnancy.

jessie on

congrats to them, i hope this pregnancy works out for her

me on

My mom had 4 miscarriages before I was conceived, so it is VERY POSSIBLE for her to carry to term…. I wish her nothing but the best and I am praying everything goes great with this pregnancy!!

Kat on

It’s sad that she probably had to announce to stay a step ahead of the press, I’m sure she’d like to hold this private after the past tragedies until she has the baby in her arms.

I wish her every happiness, she deserves it. Happy and healthy nine months!!!

Shay on

Sending good wishes and prayers to Lily and Sam!

Amanda on

Wow Olivia, 2 losses does not by any means mean you cannot have a full term healthy baby. Most women I know who have had miscarriages have unfortunately had more than one and most of those women have healthy living children as well.

I wish her and her new husband and baby on the way the best! It’s a good sign that she has gotten to 16 weeks!

AllisonJ on

Congrats to Lily and Sam. I am praying for a healthy, full-term baby for them.

By the way, I met a woman (a nurse) whose mom and dad had NINE miscarriages before giving birth to her. Miracles CAN happen, and I certainly wish the best for Lily and her unborn child.

Shannon on

@Oliva

Just wanted to let you know that I had 2 terrible miscarriages before I gave birth to my perfect daughter. Just because it happened before doesn’t mean there is something wrong with her.

Marisa on

I had two very heartbreaking miscarriages prior to having my daughter and even though I had complications with her I carried my girl full term and she came out fine… I had my boy two years later… Who knows what factors come into play when miscarriages and stillborn births happen but it doesn’t mean you give up hope… I cherish my children so much more because of it… I wish Lilly only the best in her pregnancy and the delivery of her child…

gigimama on

Olivia: I had 2 miscarriages, then a baby. Then I had 2 more miscarriages, then 2 babies.

There is absolutely no reason to expect another miscarriage for Lily Allen. I wish her all the best.

Nhzinga on

I hope she took it easy after the ceremony–and I pray this pregnancy goes to term! She’s still so young, and it’s comendable that she’s ready to be a wife and mother. She deserves the joy of a baby.

kjc on

I had 5 miscarriages over the last 3 years (all in the first trimester, never after) and am now looking at my 6 week old son as we speak. It is entirely possible that she carries this baby to term, and pray she can make it this time.

Molly on

Congrats to her. She deserves some happiness after her two loses

Olivia, your comment was pathetic and hateful. Why would say something that hurtful?

Anne on

Technically pregnancy loss in the first trimester is called abortion, in the second miscarriage, and stillbirth in the third. However, as abortion is associated with a non-spontaneous event, people tend to use miscarriage to refer to early loss and stillbirth later on. Her late-term miscarriage/stillbirth was due to infection which is generally rare and induces labour. It is unlikely to happen again and is completely different to early miscarriages that can be caused by a number of things. Any women experiencing miscarriage and stillbirth has my deepest sympathy. Occasionally there will be problems with the mother that prevent a pregnancy going to term, but that is not the case for most miscarriages. Some people have many more and go on to have healthy children. It’s hard but two miscarriages is too early to give up in my opinion, particularly as she is young. I’ve had two. If every one stopped after two miscarriages there would be a lot less people in the world. She should be able to carry to term and I wish her all the best for her pregnancy.

Crystal on

@Molly- I agree. Olivia your comment was mean and hurtful. We should be wishing and praying for her not tearing her down with ugly thoughts and bad omens.

Jeanne on

My cousin had one healthy baby, two miscarriages, another healthy baby, and is currently expecting again. No one can predict how these things will go.

I hope Lily is able to carry a healthy baby to term. She obviously wants to be a mother, I’m betting any child of hers will be well-loved and cherished.

infertilityguru on

Its the most wonderful news especially after suffering two traumatic losses….it does not matter whether the loss is first, second or third, a loss is a loss and is traumatic no matter what.

I had miscarriage two years ago in first trimester and also have infertility so I have double whammy….a perfect way to get over miscarriage is to fall pregnant again and many women do and quickly not to say its not hard but its easier then those who suffer miscarriages and infertility its like we are hit with the stick twice….Im currently under IVF cycle #1 and hoping for success …with infertility you grieve every month you have your period with the hope it worked this time its not easy at all

M! on

Emma, why do people get pregnant or adopt at all? Young children are dying right now as I type this. Some where a couple is being denied the option of adopting a child…Either way you go you risk you losing your child, your heart, and your mind. But if you want to know that joy being a parent brings you have to be optimistic and take some chances in life right?

I’m sure you meant well, but why not just wish them well.

MiB on

Wow! I wish her all the best and keep my fingers crossed that 3′s a charm!

Terri on

I certainly hope that she doesn’t have another miscarriage or stillbirth. She seems to be desperately trying to have a child. Congratulations to them

Corrie on

Congratulations! I so hope this goes well for her after everything she’s been through…

Stella Bella on

Congratulations to them and I’m praying for a healthy, full term baby! :)

ecl on

MIscarriages are actually super common, so while they are sad for the people who experience them, they are not abnormal and are necessary. While some women have more challenges staying pregnant, it does not mean that she will never carry a baby to term. It could just mean that she had two instances of bad luck.

Cecelia on

Emma, I’m going to assume you aren’t as naive as you seem but adoption is never full-proof and there can be just as many heartbreaks throughout the process. Just because of two, unfortunate circumstances in her past, it does not mean that it’s impossible to carry a healthy child to term.

As a previous poster mentioned, there are risks in parenting, itself, even if the mother gives birth to an unhealthy child. Surely you’ve seen the news and heard about drownings, car accidents, abductions, etc. There are no guarentees in life but, as a parent, you have to take a chance, love and protect your children to the best of your ability, and hope for the best.

Jillian on

Emma, have you ever been a part of an adoption where the parents change their mind? How about twice? Some people feel adoption is so easy and it actually can cause much hearbreak for a family. Having the birth parent(s) change their mind is losing your child and it sucks. While, I personally have not had it happen to me, it happen to my aunt and uncle twice, so I felt some of the heartache.

Cassey on

Obviously, Ms. Allen is aware of her health and any conditions she does or doesnt have…i think if she is already pregnant again then it is likely her OB is telling her that she should be able to carry and birth a baby of her own, and she has just had bad luck in the past or she wouldnt put herself through this again…In my opinion she is very brave and is just trying to get what so many other woman in this life want, a happy family of her own..

Congratulations on both accounts to them and I’ll pray for her successful pregnancy!

kasita on

as some1 who lost a baby a few mins after he was born,i feel for lily allen but i am also happy for her that she has a baby on the way. i am also optismistic that all things will work out. some of us just hav to try harder b4 u actually become a mother. its even worse wen fallin preggers is a challenge but all things considered i guess it is always worth the wait.goodluck to her n her hubby.

christina on

I think you should remove the pathetic comment by Olivia, she is an awful awful person for saying that, hey Olivia does the expression “bad karma” mean something to you?it will in the future don’t worry honey…
I am sure everything will go well this time!! Go Lilly :):)

carly on

@olivia no need to be negative
