London: Lily Allen’s husband, Sam Cooper, has revealed that the singer is 12 weeks pregnant at their wedding reception yesterday.
Friends who were present at the wedding said that the singer is ‘ecstatic’ to be expecting again, following two devastating miscarriages.
Allen, whose son was stillborn in November, six months into her pregnancy, had made no secret of her desire to settle down and start a family.
“Lily is pregnant and she is marrying the man of her dreams. She is truly over the moon and so ecstatically happy she has shed tears of joy. We have all been hoping and praying for good news and this is the best news ever,” the Daily Mail quoted a source as saying.
The 26-year-old bride showed off a small bump in a vintage-inspired lace-wedding gown by French designer Delphine Manivet.
“It’s beautiful that she is pregnant, and I am very happy for her,” Manivet said.
“You can see, of course, the little stomach – it looked very cute with the dress,” she added.
However, the singer is said to be taking things slowly, given her medical history.
