Following a traumatic year, Lily Allenwas finally crying tears of joys when boyfriend Sam Cooper proposed during a festive holiday in Bali, a month after they suffered a tragic miscarriage.
The 25-year-old singer immediately accepted when the “love of [her] life”, who she started dating in July 2009, popped the question on Christmas Day.
Pals say the star was shocked when Sam went down on one knee, insisting she was actually expecting him to dump her after she lost their child in November 2010 when she was just four months pregnant. “Her ex Ed Simmons left her in 2008 after she miscarried their baby,” spilled an insider. “Lily was devastated after miscarrying for the second time and feared the tragedy would force Sam to dump her too.”
Sam, who proposed at sunset on the balcony of their suite, overlooking the Indian Ocean, was said to be distraught when losing his baby but insisted the trauma brought them closer. “Sam’s desperate to start a family,” revealed a pal. “He truly felt for her and now he really wants to give it another go.”
Lily’s half-sister Sarah Owen added, “Lily hasn’t been in a great place. It’s been a long hard road but her and Sam are going to try for another baby very soon.”
While pals confirmed the couple are already trying for a baby, Lily beamed, “Sam will look after me forever. That’s what I’ve always wanted.”
