Lily Allen thanks husband for support
Singer Lily Allen has praised her husband, Sam Cooper, for helping her cope with the death of her stillborn son.
The 29-year-old star, who struggled to deal with her stillbirth back in November 2010, has thanked her partner for his support in an interview, reports a website.
“I think it’s difficult for anybody regardless of what world they live in and actually what I took home from that experience was … even though it was the most unfortunate thing that can ever happen to a person, I was very fortunate in the sense that I have a loving partner to go home to and share that experience with,” she said about her stillbirth.
The ‘Sheezus’ star, who has two daughters, says that the tragic ordeal has taught her to count her blessings.
“There are many women – (there are) 17 stillbirths in the UK every day – that go home and they don’t have that support, they have to go home and deal with that on their own, so I am kind of in a bit of a… count-my-blessings scenario,” she added.
