Lily Allen Miscarriage “Worst Time Of My Life”
Lily Allen has described her miscarriage as “the worst time of my life” and revealed she still has therapy to cope with her loss.
In 2007, the 24-year-old singer — who is now dating builder Sam Cooper — became pregnant with then boyfriend Chemical Brother Ed Simons.
“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,” Lily told Grazia Magazine this week. “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.”
She added, “The week before the due date, all I wanted to do was talk about my baby, but I also felt I shouldn’t. I was working non-stop and I had all this inside my head. I have therapy on and off but at that time it really helped me. Then I started to deal with it and move on. I still get sad. I still think. I don’t mark (what would have been) my baby’s birth but it’s always there. It changed a lot.”
