Lily Allen has reportedly named her daughter Ethel Mary.

The 'retired' popstar gave birth to her and husband Sam Cooper's first child in November last year. The name of the baby had been heavily guarded but NME understands that the news slipped out when Allen's mother Alison Owen mentioned the child's name on Facebook.

Lily Allen issued a thank you message to her fans last month following the birth of her first child. She said she had been "very touched" by the public's response. In a message on Twitter, she wrote:

Thank you for all the flowers and lovely messages everybody. Very touching indeed. nuff luv x x


A source told the Daily Mail that the birth was "all good", whilst Allen posted a tweet which read: "totes amaze" shortly after the birth (November 25).

The pregnancy, which was first announced during Cooper's speech at the couple's June 2011 wedding, came seven months after she suffered her second miscarriage.

After confirming plans to take a break from music in December 2009, Allen has turned her hand to running a London fashion store, Lucy In Disguise. She has also been working on songs to accompany a new musical version of Bridget Jones' Diary, which are set to be heard this year.

However, Allen has also hinted at a return to music, revealing she misses playing live and suggesting that she could return as a country artist.
