Lily Allen marries, reveals pregnancy

British pop singer Lily Allen has married in a quiet ceremony in the English countryside, which became a double celebration when her new husband Sam Cooper revealed she is pregnant again.

The 26-year-old singer was escorted into the church in Cranham, southwest England, by her actor father Keith Allen, while a crowd of well-wishers cheered her outside.

In his wedding speech, Cooper - her partner since 2009 - announced they were having a baby, according to media reports.

The news came just seven months after Allen suffered her second miscarriage, and prompted cheers on Saturday from the nearly 100 guests, who included comedian Harry Enfield and television presenter Angus Deayton.

Allen's wedding dress designer, Delphine Manivet, confirmed the news afterwards, saying: "It's beautiful that she is pregnant, and I am very happy for her. She is very happy about that - it is something wonderful."

Alright, Still, Allen's best-selling debut album, brought her international fame in 2006 when it sold over 2.6 million copies and the single Smile reached number one in the British charts. The album was nominated for a Grammy in 2008.
