The pop singer and TV personality Lily Allen managed to keep the identity of her new baby a secret until her mother, Alison, let the cat out of the bag. The film director let slip to a friend on Facebook that the baby girl had been named Ethel Mary, according to the UK's Sun newspaper.Lily took a hiatus from her pop career after she began dating Sam Cooper - the owner of a building company - in 2009, though her vocals can be heard on T-Pain's current single '5 O'Clock', which samples her track 'Who'd Have Known?' Allen, who married Cooper in 2011, lost a child when she was six month's pregnant, before she became pregnant again with Ethel Mary. She gave birth to her daughter on November 25th, 2011 but has kept the child's names under wraps until now.
The 'Smile' singer has given little indication of whether or not she intends to return to a career in music. The clothing store that she runs with her sister, Lucy In Disguise, is still trading, despite rumours that it had closed down last summer. She is still considered one of the biggest names in UK music and her debut record, Alright, Still, sold over 2.6 million copies and brought Allen a nomination at the Grammy Awards.
