Lily Allen, or Lily Rose Cooper as she likes to be known these days, has had a baby girl this weekend! Congratulations, Lily, we couldn’t be more pleased to hear it! There hasn’t been an official announcement, so we don’t know the name.
BUT! If it is a baby girl, then we have two possibilities so far. Apparently, during her pregnancy, Lily and her husband Sam Cooper knew the a sex of the little ‘un but kept it a secret. She was quoted in a newspaper interview in September saying her mum, film producer Alison Owen was desperate to know the sex of her grandchild-to-be: ‘It’s between me and my husband. She thinks she knows what it is and whenever she calls me she refers to the baby as Betty.’
Alternatively, since the nipper’s surname is Cooper, it has already been suggested by one wag, that they might plump for ‘Mini’
Congratulations to all the family! Could this spell competition for Harper Seven Beckham in the baby style stakes? We’re on tenterhooks for our first glimpse!
