Lily Allen Taking Time Out For Baby

Lily Allen has taken a break from music because she is ready to have a baby.

The singer - who is currently dating builder Sam Cooper, 31 - admits she has put her pop career on hold so she can fulfil her dream of becoming a mother.

And Lily has scoffed at claims that, at 25, she is too young to devote herself to become a mother.

She said in an interview with Elle magazine: "I don't think I'm that young to have a baby. My mother had me when she was 23. It's difficult as a woman who wants a family.

"Kids take up your whole life, particularly in the first two or three years. So it wouldn't be very responsible of me to commit to doing a world tour if I had a baby."

However, at last weekend's Glastonbury Festival in Somerset, South West England, Lily sparked rumours she was already expecting by steering well clear of cigarettes and alcohol.

An onlooker told BANG Showbiz: "Lily spent the whole night sat on a deck chair wrapped up in a poncho canoodling with Sam.

"She didn't touch a drop of alcohol and not one cigarette passed her lips all night."

The 'Smile' singer - who was left heartbroken after suffering a miscarriage with then-boyfriend Ed Simons' baby in January 2008 - recently announced she was taking an extended break from pop music and was hoping to have a baby with the first year of her sabbatical.

She said: "It'll be a minimum of four or five years before I make a record again. I'd like to have a child within a year.

"I know what commitment it takes to release an album. I don't think that mixes well with the idea of settling down and having children, which is ultimately my goal and more of a priority than flying around the world."
