At the time there was speculation that the singer had to have her gorgeous wedding gown altered to accommodate her fuller figure, but according to the designer Allen had planned for a baby bump when she chose the dress at the beginning of the year.
“We knew from the beginning – way back in January – that Lily wanted to get pregnant, so I designed the dress she wore underneath in silk tulle to be comfortable over a little bump,” says designer Delphine Manivet. “We were very excited when she told us the news. It was beautiful.”
Manivet says that although the ‘Smile’ singer had chosen her gown months before the wedding, she wanted to keep everyone guessing. “Like every bride, she wanted the dress to be a surprise. [She] wanted something traditional and not too exposed.”
It’s an exciting and hopeful time for Allen, who recently opened up about her two previous miscarriages – the first one occurring in 2008 and the second in October of last year. ‘It was a really long battle – and I think that kind of thing changes a person,” she said.
