And, right on totally late cue, Lily Allen chimes in with the news that she’s also pregnant to boyfriend of three months, 37-year-old Chemical Brothers member Ed Simons. What a surprise.
You can always tell when a celebrity publicity stunt is becoming a trend because Lily Allen will tag along way after it seems viable. She is sort of the female Jesse Metcalfe of rehab in that way. When Paris Hilton was arrested she was all about announcing to the press about how she smacked a photographer and was taken in trouble with the police. She even said, “I’m going to be like Paris Hilton now” or something to that effect. At that point, getting arrested was the new rehab. Having a kid is the new getting arrested.
The greatest part about the whole thing though, is the statement from the publicist:
“I am pleased to confirm that Lily Allen and her boyfriend Ed Simons are expecting their first child. However, as the pregnancy is at a very, very early stage, the couple ask that you respect their privacy, as the health of Lily and their child is their paramount concern. As the pregnancy is at such an early stage the couple will be making no further comment but they are obviously both thrilled by the news. Lily's new album will be released as planned next year."
I’m sorry, Lily Allen most certainly does NOT ask that you respect their privacy at all. What would be the point of this is that were what they freaking wanted? Lily Allen wants a three ring circus around her so she can pretend to ignore it and be annoyed by it. I would even hold out to find out if she actually is pregnant. She’s still smoking for one thing.
