Keith: Lily expecting second child
Lily Allen is pregnant with her second child, father Keith Allen has confirmed.
The 27-year-old singer - who welcomed daughter Ethel Mary with husband Sam Cooper last November - was reported to be pregnant by a Sunday newspaper earlier this month.
Her actor father Keith was asked about the rumours by Ruth Langsford on ITV's This Morning.
He said: "Yes, she is pregnant," but didn't say any more.
Lily lost a baby six months into a pregnancy in 2010 and suffered a miscarriage in 2008.
The Smile singer recently revealed she was working on a new album, but she has often said she would like to retire from music and focus on having a family.
She previously told People: "I just want to have babies and live in the countryside, that's my goal really.
"I'm not a careerist, what I really want is to be a mum. I am driven, but that drive goes as far as keeping a roof over my head and having a routine."
