Although no other details were released, Lily's quest to become a first-time mom has been an exceptionally sad one, especially for someone as young as she is. This lost marks the second miscarriage for the singer. In January 2008, Lily became pregnant for the first time with her then-boyfriend Ed Simmons of The Chemical Brothers. After the miscarriage of that baby, the couple broke up and Lily called it the "worst time of her life." Lily Allen Quits Therapy In Favor Of Boyfriend
"I couldn’t even compute the emotions going through my head, but I was having to put out a press release about my miscarriage… I had this public sympathy for about five days and then everyone was on my case again and I didn’t know what was happening to me," Lily told Grazia Magazine in December 2009. "I just didn’t deal with it at all. I didn’t even start beginning to deal with it until the baby’s due date. Then it just hit me like a house collapsing."
This past year had been a happier one for Lily, and she seemed truly excited to become a mother for the first time, even telling British Glamour Magazine that she was putting her music career on hold in order to devote all of her time to home-making. Lily Allen Is Pregnant!
