And some serious congratulations are in order, here. I don’t know if you remember all the crises Lily Allen has somehow lived through—celebrity gossip is a fickle mistress with a short memory—but there was a distinct phase of her stardom where she was out-Winehousing Amy Winehouse. It was actually kind of tough to keep the two straight for a minute there.
But once Allen domesticated herself—she has always been really open about wanting to get into a “family way”—she suffered, count ’em, two miscarriages, all by the ripe old age of 25. And while I want to keep this blog light and airy, I can’t be too cavalier: for a woman who has issues with getting pregnant, a miscarriage is one hell of a way to have a dream deferred. Poor Lily.
But all’s well that ends well! In Lily’s own words, “Totes amaze.”
