Lily Allen and Sam Cooper are thrilled over their baby news.

The British singer announced today that she and boyfriend Sam are expecting their first child. Lily tweeted a photo showing her holding up the front page of the newspaper with the headline "Lily: I'm preggers".  Her rep confirmed the news: “Lily Allen and Sam Cooper are very happy to confirm that Lily is expecting their first child,” “Lily’s professional commitments will carry on as normal, including a scheduled performance at the Big Chill this weekend.”

Lily had admitted a while back that starting a family was her top priority.  Lily sadly suffered a miscarriage about 2 years ago.  We wish her all the best for a safe, healthy, and happy pregnancy!  Congratulations!

We'll need to add Lily to our ever-growing list of celebrity moms who Twitter.
