Lily Allen has given birth to her and husband Sam Cooper’s second daughter, and her name has already been revealed – welcome Marnie Rose Cooper.
Lily, who normally keeps her cards close to her chest, has already tweeted her fans saying, “Quite overwhelmed by all the well wishings going on. THANK YOU everyone.”
A friend told the Mirror, “Marnie is a real cutie. Sam and Lily are ecstatic about adding another girl to the family.”
Lily, who gave birth to her first daughter Ethel Mary in November 2011, appears to have looked to her own name for baby name inspiration, adding a matching Rose middle name. With all the talk of Alfred Hitchcock over the festive period, perhaps Lily and Sam looked to his 1964 pyschological thriller for name inspiration, or, maybe not!
In the last few days Lily has been hinting that she’s been trying to bring on labour, tweeting “castor oil” and adding that she was on her third curry of the week with still no joy, adding “#cosywomb”. But, as Lily said on New Year’s Eve that she didn’t intend to spend much of this year pregnant, she must be pretty chuffed with her efforts.
It has been revealed that Lily has bought a Mima buggy in preparation for Marnie’s arrival – quite a change from the traditional Silvercross Lily chose for Ethel. We look forward to the first snap of Lily out and about with her second daughter and lovely Ethel, too!
