Lily Allen has requested some space following her the loss of her baby over the weekend.

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

Lily was 6 months pregnant with boyfriend Sam Cooper‘s baby.

‘It is with great sadness that we have to confirm that Lily Allen and Sam Cooper have lost their baby,’ reads a statement.

‘The couple ask that their privacy be respected and that they be left alone at this deeply distressing time.’

In January 2008, Lily had a miscarriage while carrying Chemical Brothers star Ed Simons‘ child.

The 25-year-old has been dating Sam since July 2009 and the pair plan to marry.

‘Of course I want to get married to Sam. But I certainly won’t be getting married while I’m pregnant, Lily said recently.

‘It’s not an urgent thing – but one day a wedding would be great.’
