Lily Allen has given birth to a baby girl. The 27-year-old singer and her husband, Sam Cooper, welcomed Marnie Rose Cooper into the world on Tuesday night.
Lily and Sam are also parents to a 14-month-old girl named Ethel.
The Sun newspaper reported the following from a source close to the pair: “Marnie is a real cutie. Sam and Lily are ecstatic about adding another girl to the family. A little sister for Ethel is brilliant news to lift the January blues for the family.”
It’s very happy news for the couple, especially considering Lily’s struggles in the past; she tragically lost two children previously, one by miscarriage in 2008 and one by stillbirth in 2010.
