Lily Allen Calls Son's Stillbirth 'Most Unfortunate Thing' That Can Happen

Lily AllenBack in 2010, singer Lily Allen suffered a devastation no woman should ever have to endure -- the miscarriage and stillbirth of her son. The British star was six months pregnant when she lost the baby, and it was the second pregnancy loss in two years.

"I think it's difficult for anybody regardless of what world they live in ... it was the most unfortunate thing that can ever happen to a person," she opened up, in an interview on The Johnathan Ross Show, airing Saturday, November 8.

The "Smile" singer had an amazing attitude about the devastating loss. She found comfort in her partner Sam Cooper, whom she later married in June 2011.

"Actually what I took home from that experience was ... I was very fortunate in the sense that I have a loving partner to go home to and share that experience with," she said of her hubs.

The 29-year-old continued, "There are ... 17 stillbirths in the UK every day ... and there are many women that go home and they don't have that support, they have to go home and deal with that on their own so I am kind of in a ... count-my-blessings scenario rather than feeling sorry for myself."

I can't even imagine having that kind of positive attitude about such a tragic loss, but maybe one thing making it a little bit easier is that she eventually had two healthy baby girls. She and Sam welcomed Ethel Mary in November 2012 and Marnie Rose in January 2013.

So are there any more baby plans in the works?

"I'd love a boy," Allen admitted. "And I'd also like another girl just so I can call her Auxiliary Jane or Pizza ... I quite like Pizza for a kid, or Megan Lolz that would be good. Megan Lolz."

Are you impressed by Lily Allen's attitude toward the loss of her son?
