Allen Will Avoid Wacky Baby Names
Pregnant Lily Allen has vowed not to follow the celebrity trend of giving her baby a "stupid" name - because her boyfriend would suffer jibes from his straight-talking colleagues.
The Smile hitmaker is due to give birth to her first child, a son, in January (11) and admits that since doctors told her the baby's gender, she and her partner Sam Cooper have been considering what to call their offspring.
The couple has drawn up a list of potential names - but they plan to avoid any that are too bizarre as construction worker Cooper would face the derision of his workmates.
Allen tells Stylist magazine, "The whole thing became a lot more real to me when I found out it was a boy. You start to think of names, and then you can go shopping, and it all feels like it's happening.
"I've got a really stupid list of names, but I'm not going to show you. But, no, we probably won't (use it). I think Sam is way too straight and traditional for that sort of thing. He'd get the p**s taken out of him (ridiculed) on the building site."
