Lily Allen Welcomes Daughter Marnie Rose
The "Smile" singer and her husband Sam Cooper welcomed her second daughter -- and the baby girl shares her special day with rock legends Elvis and David Bowie. Marnie Rose arrived on Tuesday, Jan. 8, according to reports.
Cue the lullabies: Lily Allen is a mom — again!
The “Smile” singer and her husband Sam Cooper reportedly welcomed their second daughter, Marnie Rose Cooper,on Tuesday, Jan. 8.
The couple — who wed in Gloucestershire, England in June 2011 — are already parents to 13-month-old daughter Ethel Mary.
Her rep declined to confirm the pregnancy in July, but after stepping out several times with a burgeoning belly, no official confirmation was needed when 27-year-old Allen appeared radiant on the red carpet during the British Fashion Awards in November.
On New Year’s Eve, Allen was anxious the tot would emerge soon, Tweeting she was “only planning on spending a few days of  pregnant. Unlike the last 3 years.” And she said she had been sampling curries to try to force labor.
A rep for the singer (who goes by her married name Cooper) didn’t immediately respond to requests for comment or statement, but Allen appeared to acknowledge the news Thursday when she thanked fans, writing, “Quite overwhelmed by all the well wishing going on. THANKYOU everybody x x x”
One of those came from actor friend Charlie Condou, who Tweeted he had a “little cry” when Lily “told me Marnie Rose was born” on his birthday.
