She's trying to put tragedy behind her as her man pops the question
Lily Allen’s faced a brutal few weeks after tragically losing her baby six months into her pregnancy.
However, there’s some good news at last for the 25-year-old Londoner: her boyfriend Sam Cooper has reportedly proposed.
Although Lily’s representatives deny she’s engaged, Now’s trusty insider informs us that the couple plan to tie the knot next year.
‘Everyone’s so proud of Lily,’ says a friend. ‘She’s made a list of how to get through what can only be described as the most horrible tragedy.
‘This is the most awful situation in the world and she’s aware that nothing can take away the hurt she feels at losing her and Sam’s baby.
‘But last week Sam told Lily he can’t live without her and wants to go ahead with their wedding plans.
‘It was always the plan that they’d marry at some point but this has given her a major boost.’
Brave Lily has had more than her fair share of heartache, having previously lost a baby in 2008.
She’s also been hospitalised twice in the past for depression – but friends say this time she’s taking steps to make sure things don’t get the better of her.
‘Lily’s been in a dark place but she’s slowly rebuilding from the shock,’ says the pal.
‘She told Sam she needs time to heal but she’s not letting herself die of a broken heart.
‘He’s being very supportive but he’s hurting like hell too, so they had a long heart-to-heart and have planned a holiday somewhere quiet.’
