British singer Lily Allen, 25, is pregnant with her first child. She is currently three months along and said to be "absolutely delighted." Though the singer is expecting, that won’t halt any upcoming shows just yet. "Lily’s professional commitments will carry on as normal, including a scheduled performance at the Big Chill this weekend," her rep said in a statement.

Allen has long wanted a child, recently telling a British radio show that it is "ultimately my main goal in life and more of a priority than flying around the world jumping up and down on stage singing songs."

This isn’t the first time the singer was expecting a baby. In 2008, Allen suffered a heartbreaking miscarriage that she described as "the worst time" in her life. “I couldn’t even compute the emotions going through my head, but I was having to put out a press release about my miscarriage… I had this public sympathy for about five days and then everyone was on my case again and I didn’t know what was happening to me,” she told Grazia magazine in last December. “I just didn’t deal with it at all. I didn’t even start beginning to deal with it until the baby’s due date. Then it just hit me like a house collapsing.”

Allen has since moved on by keeping herself busy with other projects, including a fashion line, Lucy in Disguise, that she’s set to unveil next week with her sister, Sarah Owen. –Natthakan Garunrangseewong
