Lily Allen has suffered a miscarriage, according to reports.

The 22-year-old was expecting her first child with boyfriend Ed Simons from the band the Chemical Brothers.

But The Sun newspaper reported that the star – daughter of actor Keith Allen – had lost the baby.

As Lily’s spokesman confirmed the news, a source close to the singer said: “The bad news has been really difficult for them to take and they are absolutely heartbroken.

“Lily’s entire outlook on life changed after she found out she was pregnant. She was looking forward to being a mum and starting a family with Ed.

“She had turned her back on the party girl image and turned over a new leaf.”

Lily met Simons, 39, after a Chemical Brothers’ gig in London’s Trafalgar Square in September.

Her chat show, Lily Allen And Friends, launches on BBC3 in the spring and her second album is due out later this year.
