Lily Allen’s Struggle After Losing Baby



British pop star Lily Allen has now opened up about losing her unborn child, a son. She claims the trauma almost killed her.

She suffered the first miscarriage in 2008, and then in 2010 when she was six months pregnant. She then lost the baby of her now-husband Sam Cooper.

The day after the incident, she was admitted to hospital with septicaemia. She reveals she almost died but was feeling too numb to even care.

She told Britain’s The Sun,

“It was horrendous and something I would not wish on my worst enemy. It’s something that I still haven’t dealt with. I never will get over it. I have dealt with it, you know, as being at one with it. But it’s not something you get over. I held my child and it was really horrific and painful – one of the hardest things that can happen to a person.”
“I was overwhelmed by what an incredibly unlucky thing it was to happen. But I had this man standing by my side, who I knew was going to be with me for the rest of my life.”

“I nearly died. But I was numb and I didn’t care. I’d just lost my baby and that is a reflection of how numb I was.”

She also says she thinks about her unborn son every day, “We’ve got a little stone in our garden with his name on it. And lots of different things that I do, rituals, I have him in my mind.”

She now has two daughters, two-year-old Ethel and 15-month-old Marnie.
