Lily Allen thanks fans after birth of child

'Retired' singer says she has been 'very touched' by response

Lily Allen has issued a thank you message to her fans following the birth of her first child.

The ‘retired’ singer, who has yet to reveal a photo of her baby, 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

Lily gave birth to the baby girl late last month. 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 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 “some time next year”.

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