Allen opts for Ethel baby name?

Lily Allen gave birth to her baby daughter in November

Lily Allen has named her baby daughter Ethel Mary, according to reports.

The Smile singer sparked speculation that she'd been inspired by EastEnders with her choice of moniker, as Ethel May Skinner was the name of Dot Cotton's friend in the BBC One soap.

The Sun said that Lily's mum, film producer Alison Owen, revealed her granddaughter's name to a friend on Facebook.

A spokesman for the star refused to comment on the report.

Lily, who married building boss Sam Cooper last summer, gave birth to their first child in November.

But she's kept tight-lipped about the arrival, saying little except to tweet last month to say that it was "very touching" to receive "all the flowers and lovely messages".

You could hear some painful things about your behaviour. Instead of getting defensive, be open to changing for the sake of your relationship. Think back to a time when someone you loved worked hard to gain your affection and approval. Pattern your attitude after theirs. Being flexible is more important than being right.More
