Pregnant Lily Allen Realising Home + Family Dreams
Pregnant Lily Allen has been preparing for motherhood for the past eight years, gathering furniture and keepsakes for the home she one day hopes to settle down in. The Smile singer announced her pregnancy just before Christmas (07) and now has set her sights on finding a dream home. She says, "I've been collecting stuff for my house since I was about 14 years old - Moroccan rugs, Eames chairs, lithographs, French farmhouse tables. "I think it's quite telling that even though I've never had a house, I've been building a nest since I was 14." And she's keen to settle down with Chemical Brothers star Ed Simons - the father of her unborn baby. She adds, "I've looked forward to being stable my whole life. My parents are amazing, but it has been a whirlwind upbringing. "I definitely have got my eye on the prize, which is having kids and getting married and cooking dinner and doing homework with my children."
