Lily Allen 'getting Braxton Hicks'

Lily Allen is due to give birth to her first baby

Lily Allen has revealed her baby could be on the way any day now.

The 26-year-old singer - who married Sam Cooper in June and is about eight months pregnant - has tweeted that she is experiencing Braxton Hicks, known as false labour, which can begin up to six weeks before the birth.

Lily, who tweets as MrsLRCooper, wrote "Weetabix" on Sunday, before adding on Monday: "Toni Braxton Hinda Hicks."

The Smile singer had her baby shower last week, with friends and family celebrating with her as she prepares for her new arrival.

She tweeted on Thursday: "En route to baby shower, bit scared."

Lily has been staying at home watching lots of television and sharing her thoughts on The X Factor with her Twitter followers as she waits for her baby to arrive.

Last month she tweeted: "My husband just called me his 'little fat controller' like off of Thomas the Tank Engine , so not LOL."

Lily, who lives in Gloucestershire with builder Sam, has often said her dream is to live in the country and have babies.

She tragically lost a baby at six months in November last year following complications. Lily had previously suffered a miscarriage in 2008 when she was dating Chemical Brothers star Ed Simons.

Virgo:

Be assertive about your needs. It's time to stop deferring to the pushier people in your crowd. You have an opportunity to land a good job, embark on a romance or showcase your talent. Don't hesitate to elbow your way past a rival. The person you want to impress will admire your strong stance. Turn a deaf ear to some disturbing gossip. The troublemaker who is spreading this story is just a jealous rival. Beware of tarnishing an innocent person's reputation.More
