Lily Allen tells of baby tragedy

Lily Allen said it was 'touch and go' after she lost her baby last year

Lily Allen has spoken of the "devastating" loss of her baby when she six months pregnant, revealing that it was "touch and go" after the ordeal.

The 25-year-old star talked about the tragedy in the final episode of Channel 4's Lily Allen: From Riches To Rags, which follows Lily and her sister Sarah Owen as they launch their own clothes shop, Lucy In Disguise.

"I got really ill after he died and I was admitted into hospital and it was really quite touch and go for a few days," she said.

"It was amazing how my friends reacted so much more to me being ill then to actually what I felt was the devastating part. I couldn't have cared less if I was on my death bed.

"I didn't even feel it," she added tearfully.

Most of the show was filmed before the singer lost her second baby while six months pregnant last November but she reflected on her loss at the end of the final episode of the series.

The singer said the experience had changed her outlook and spoke of how lucky she felt to have supportive friends and family.

"Even though what's happened to me has been beyond devastating, it's made me realise what I really have. I probably feel more compassionate towards things than I have previously.

"I spent a long time in a hospital bed and my outlook has changed. Everything has changed," she said.

"I can't believe how much of my life I spent complaining about things."
