keeps taking breaks from her music career, and this time she's leading us to believe her hiatus is because she's getting ready to have a kid! She is currently dating builder Sam Cooper
, 31, and talks about babies all the time. Could it be? Lily Allen and her sister in London. (Getty)
Lily has scoffed at claims that, at 25, she is too young to devote herself to become a mother. She said in an interview with Elle magazine: “I don’t think I’m that young to have a baby. My mother had me when she was 23. It’s difficult as a woman who wants a family.
“Kids take up your whole life, particularly in the first two or three years. So it wouldn’t be very responsible of me to commit to doing a world tour if I had a baby.”
However, at last weekend’s Glastonbury Festival in Somerset, South West England, Lily sparked rumors she was already expecting by steering well clear of cigarettes and alcohol. An onlooker told BANG Showbiz: “Lily spent the whole night sat on a deck chair wrapped up in a poncho canoodling with Sam. She didn’t touch a drop of alcohol and not one cigarette passed her lips all night.”
The "Smile" singer, who was left heartbroken after suffering a miscarriage with then-boyfriend Ed Simons’ baby in January 2008, recently announced she was taking an extended break from pop music and was hoping to have a baby with the first year of her sabbatical. She said: "It'll be a minimum of four or five years before I make a record again. I'd like to have a child within a year. I know what commitment it takes to release an album. I don't think that mixes well with the idea of settling down and having children, which is ultimately my goal and more of a priority than flying around the world."
