We were thrilled when singer and hot mom Lily Allen announced she had a bun in the oven in August, but unfortunately her journey to Parent Town is not going as smoothly as it could be. After experiencing a miscarriage in 2008, Lily Allen faces pregnancy complications again she carries her second bundle this year. “I came off the pill and, weirdly, a week later it happened. But then it was really difficult, I had complications,” said the songstress, whose upcoming child with boyfriend Sam Cooper will be her first.
Says Allen, “I had about a week and a half of really heavy bleeding and had to have lots of scans … I’ve been living in fear for the past three months.” Aw! Poor Lily. We wish the only thing she had to worry about was getting into a fistfight with Elton John, like in the good old days.
Allen’s pregnancy might be a big source of stress right now, but she has already taken steps to drop her biggest annoyance: pop stardom. “I don’t think it’s that much a part of me, to be honest,” she says of her musical career, which is currently on an indefinite hold. “It’s something I’ve done, that I enjoyed doing, and I may go back to doing it in years to come, but I’ve got to believe that there is more.” Which means those of us waiting for her next album might be out of luck until that kid graduates middle school. We hope Lily breezes through the rest of her pregnancy, and we encourage her to step back in the recording studio as soon as she feels the urge. Or as soon as she can strap her kid into a baby Bjorn, which ever comes first. [Photo: Getty Images]
