Allen's Boyfriend Curbs Her Spending

LILY ALLEN has credited her new boyfriend with improving her bank balance - because he's curbed her extravagant shopping sprees.
The Smile singer began dating building contractor Sam Cooper over the summer (09), and she reveals her partner was shocked when he found out how much money she spent on designer clothes.
Allen admits her lover has been encouraging her to save instead of splashing the cash.
She says, "It's f**king disgusting some of the things I do, like not battering (sic) an eyelid over spending two grand (two thousand pounds) on a new pair of shoes, but it's difficult to hold on to reality... Being with Sam has really helped me with that because he's like, 'Stop! What are you doing? This money is your future!'"
And the pop star is pleased her beau has a well-paid job and a good grasp of finances - because she needs a partner who will support her when she eventually takes time off to have children.
She adds, "When I have kids, I don't want to be working six days a week, I want to be taking them to school, making them packed lunches, and reading them books every night. So it's important to me that whoever I have kids with has a job so he can support us for the number of years I'm going to take off, so I can be a good mother."
