British singer Lily Allen was rushed to the hospital on Friday after she developed septicemia after losing her latest pregnancy a few days before. Her rep is now saying she’s responding well to treatment and is improving.
In August this year, Lily confirmed she and her boyfriend Sam were three-month pregnant
, and very excited about the idea of becoming parents. She was due in January.
This was Lily’s second pregnancy: in 2007, she became pregnant with her then-boyfriend, but she miscarried shortly after going on the record with the happy news (no relation between the two, of course).
Between that time and the moment she confirmed she was pregnant again, Lily continued to drop hints about wanting to become a mother
, even saying she planned on taking about 5 years off to concentrate on starting a family.

Luckily, though she’s still dealing with her terrible loss, the star is recovering well, her publicist explains for the same publication.
“It seems fan mail and doctors’ care have Lily Allen on the mend as she fights a blood-poisoning condition that can be fatal,” People writes.
“The 25-year-old was rushed back to a clinic Friday to treat the bacterial condition, just days after the tragedy of losing her baby,” the magazine informs.
“Her rep Murray Chalmers confirmed to People that she was ‘being treated for septicaemia.’ But she is showing encouraging signs, and. Chalmers says she ‘is responding well to treatment and her condition continues to improve’,” the same media outlet says.
Apparently, the impressive wave of support Lily has been receiving ever since news of her miscarriage got out also played a part in her road to recovery, the publication believes.
“Sources close to her have told how she has been boosted by the number of supportive letters that have been sent her in the past week,” says People.
“Lily thanks everyone for their messages of support and again asks that she and partner Sam Cooper be left alone whilst she recovers,” Chalmers says in the same statement.
