Singer Lily Allen turned to Twitter while in hospital with complications

TAGS:

Lily Allen asked fans to pray for her baby while she was in hospital this weekend. 

The singer was admitted to a clinic on Thursday after complaining of stomach pain,
but – after days of trying – doctors were unable to save her child.

‘Say a little prayer,’ she Tweeted on Saturday.

Fans only realised the true meaning behind the cryptic message yesterday when Lily‘s spokesperson announced she had lost the child.

Lily was 6 months pregnant with boyfriend Sam Cooper‘s baby, so her sad loss is not medically termed a miscarriage, which occurs before the 24th week of pregnancy.

In January 2008, she had a miscarriage while carrying Chemical Brothers star Ed Simons‘ child and had counselling to help her deal with her grief.

Lily, 25, has been dating Sam since July 2009.
