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.
