Rumors are swirling that adorable British singer Lily Allen -- who made headlines a few years back for two heartbreaking miscarriages -- has thrilling pregnancy news ... She's reportedly pregnant with her second baby! Lily and her artist hubby Sam Cooper are said to be "over-the-moon," and Lily's just past the three-month mark, making the baby's due date in December ... Just a smidge more than a year since they welcomed little Ethel Mary into the world.
Whoa -- do you know what this means? Lily's totally pulling a Tori Spelling!
Okay, maybe it's not quite the same, because Tori's shocking pregnancy news wasn't just that she got pregnant so quickly after giving birth, but it was also that she and Dean were taking a major step toward Huge Familyville by expanding their brood from three to four. Hearing that any woman has gone for a second kiddo -- even in such short succession after the first -- isn't as shocking.
A friend of Lily's told The Mirror:
It was a surprise but Lily and Sam are thrilled. The pair of them have loved every minute of parenthood so far and wanted to expand their brood quickly. So it's great timing.
Aww! Even if she didn't plan on it, it does sound like Lily is cool with the idea of having her children be close in age. Perhaps because she and her brother Alfie are only about a year apart, as well, and judging by the fact that she actually wrote a taunting but loving song named after him, they're buddies!
Still, there are plenty of things a mom of kids born so close together will have to bear in mind ... For instance, Lily's likely going to need tons of diapers, a double stroller, and probably more than a few tricks up her sleeve to keep Ethel Mary happy at times when the newborn needs most of her attention. Ultimately, though, I'm sure it'll be more fun and exciting than stressful. Big congrats to the happy second-time parents-to-be!
Are you surprised by this news? How do you feel about having children about a year apart?
