According to Britain’s Sunday Mirror newspaper, the British singer — who became parents to daughter Ethel Mary last November — and her husband Sam Cooper are “thrilled” at the news they will welcome another child into the world in December.
“Lily has started telling her friends and everybody in her close circle is so excited for her,” a source said.
“It was a surprise but Lily and Sam are thrilled. The pair of them have loved every minute of parenthood so far and wanted to expand their brood quickly. So it’s great timing.
“I think everyone is a bit surprised they’ve decided to have another baby so quickly.
“But they are great parents and absolutely devoted to Ethel. The pair of them are just delighted they’ve got another one on the way.
“They’re such a happy family with Ethel. This is really great news.
“Lily was sure people were going to cotton on to the fact she had a pregnancy bump but she seemed to get away with it thanks to wearing very baggy clothing.
“Her bump has popped out very early — far earlier than the last pregnancy. She’s been joking she feels six months pregnant already.”
“Summer has officially started so I thought I would share some photos from my favorite warm weather month with you,” she writes. “I started the month off by celebrating Lola’s 7th birthday. How sweet is her baby picture?”
The Madea’s Witness Protection star goes on to share a photo from her girls’ double birthday party.
“The celebrations continued with a luau party for Lola and Eloise‘s first birthday,” she writes, and shares on Twitter that May 24 is her baby’s actual birthday. “Her birthday is a week before Lola’s so we had a huge summer bash.”
The actress – who is also mom to 8-year-old daughter Sam – says that her summer has been amazing so far.
“June was the perfect start to summer, but I can’t wait to see what is in store for July,” she says.
