Lily Allen got engaged to boyfriend Sam Cooper in Bali on Christmas, according to a couple of British media reports.
‘Lily was telling everyone that she and Sam had just got engaged,’ said an onlooker in the bar at the resort where the couple were celebrating, speaking to the Daily Mail. ‘They could not keep the smiles off their faces. It couldn’t have been more romantic.’
The British singer, 25, has been vacationing in Australia and Indonesia with Cooper, a 32-year-old builder, in the wake of an early November miscarriage, her second.
‘He’s been her rock for her since the couple lost their baby and she can’t wait to spend the rest of her life with him,’ a source told the Sun. Friends for years, the two have been dating since July 2009, the paper said. Allen battled a blood infection after losing their baby.
Allen’s rep has not confirmed the Mail report, and the singer hasn’t said anything on Twitter about her relationship status -- though she offered congratulations to England for holding on to the Ashes cricket title ‘on Aussie soil.’
(Hugh Jackman was sort of congratulated by onlookers as he took a shot to the groin Sunday at the Ashes, incidentally.)
