16 yr old Jamie Lynn Spears isn't the only one
Popstar, tabloid favourite, chat show host. Lily Allen will soon be able to add mother to that list after the singer confirmed she is pregnant with her first child.
A spokesman for the 22-year-old said the pregnancy was at a "very, very early stage" and confirmed the father is Allen's boyfriend Ed Simons, one half of the Chemical Brothers.
Allen, whose single Smile went to number one last summer, has spoken on numerous occasions about her desire to start a family and leave music behind, in some accounts by the age of 25. She recently told the Sunday Times: "I'd like to live in the country and have a walled garden, and chickens and pigs."
As well as confirming the pregnancy, however, Allen's spokesman said that her second album, the follow-up to 2006's Alright, Still, would be released next year as originally planned.
Simons, 37, and Allen have been together since September of this year and are said to be "thrilled" by the news.[Guardian]
