Lily Allen ties the knot - and confirms pregnancy

Double the congratulations for Lily Allen: The singer not only tied the knot over the weekend, but she also announced she’s pregnant.

The 26-year-old's now-husband, Sam Cooper, let the news slip to guests at the couple’s wedding on Saturday.

Delphine Manivet, the singer’s wedding dress designer, told U.K. paper the Telegraph, “It's beautiful that she is pregnant, and I am very happy for her. She is very happy about that – it is something wonderful."

Manivet crafted a gown with three-quarter length lace sleeves and a cut that left a little room for Allen's baby bump, which “looked very cute with the dress,” she told the paper.

"For me, and for her too, when you're pregnant you want to show that, but also be respectful, so the dress was perfect for her for that moment."

Rumors of an engagement began at the end of 2010, just weeks after the devastating news that Allen had lost the baby she was carrying, which was due in January. Three years prior, Allen had suffered a miscarriage while dating musician Ed Simons.

    I hope all goes well for her and this baby's born healthy and strong. Miscarriages are devastating, poor girl.

      You're basing that opinion on a 2,000 year old book written by men, I'm assuming? Not all of us have to live within those narrow confines. Pay attention to your own life and don't worry so much about how others are living – you'll be much happier and less judgmental.

    She has had hits with 'smile' 'ldn' 'the fear' as well as presented many british tv shows, she had a still birth last year and deserves happiness finally.. Why do people feel that they are the judge, she can wear whatever color she wants! I personally wish her every joy, but then again, I'm not a bitter bible basher who hates anyone who's happy. Your negative comments are a sin, let he who is without cast the first stone- rules I thought Christians where supposed to adhere to... Plus, I know the whole troll thing makes you all so hilarious and edgy, but commenting 'who cares' on a story you have voluntarily opened makes you look dumb – are you smarted than a 5th grader – answer no.

    I remember reading after her last miscarriage that she underwent tests to determine why she was having these miscarriages and they found out she had some sort of blood disorder. Hope she got herself taken care of otherwise she's bound to have another one. I would like to think she got herself well before getting pregnant again, if not that's kind of selfish. Maybe she should've given her body a little more time.

      How is it selfish? She's the one that has to carry the child and risk the miscarriage.

    Please ignore my prior comment. It was only done to test a theory. CNN has no problem posting something that vulgar and inappropriate, but refuses to post any of my comments that contain medical terminology or religious contradictions. Talk about restricting the right to free speech!

      First amendment rights are not extended to private enterprises and websites. Only public and govt forums like rec centers, city hall or like city parks. CNN gets to make the rules on their website, fair and square. Read ToS.

    She could have waited a decent time to announce her pregnancy so that it was not clear that she conceived out of wedlock. However, it is commendable that they went ahead and wed so that the child would not be born a bast*rd. Right thing for both of them to do.

    She's really riding the success of only 1 song. It's nice when "artists" showcase their talent with more than one successful single, but as far as I can tell, "Smile" was her only true success, and yet people still care about her personally. Her style of music isn't my cup of meat, but in her genre, I feel she is more popular than the proportion of music she has released.

      One song? Are you kidding me? Try opening your mind and your ears. She's had quite a few hits and just because she hasnt had much play here in America where we'd rather listen to Brittney and Taylor than girls with talent doesnt mean she hasnt earned her fame.

      In this day and age, white is simply a traditional color for a wedding gown. The symbolism of virginity kind of faded once civilization realized that no one really cares if the bride or the groom is a virgin or not.

      I agree. And white is never appropriate when the bride is pregnant.

    According to republicans as long as that child is born it is a good child and should be loved and cared for by whoever it may be who has the child. This baby will be born to a mother and father and hopefully will be loved, cared for and have a great life.
