She says, “After my last baby, I’m being really closely monitored so I come to London every Thursday for a scan. The doctor keeps telling me to take it easy.”
It has been an unnerving time for the 26-year-old. In 2008, she suffered a miscarriage when she was dating musician Ed Simons. Then when she became pregnant with now-husband Sam Cooper’s baby in the spring of 2010, she sadly lost her baby six months later.
Allen shares, “These times feel strangely apocalyptic. I feel a little guilty about bringing this little one into the world, actually. It definitely feels weird.”
She still feels haunted from the trauma of losing her babies stating, “I was terrified the other night in bed. I wake up a lot at the moment and at one point I touched Sam’s face and it was freezing cold. I was screaming. ‘Sam! Sam! Omigod, my husband’s dead! I’ve sorted everything out and now it’s all over!’ He woke up and said, ‘All the windows are open’.”
For now, she’s slowing down and enjoying it!
Instinctively I always want to be involved in everything. But with this pregnancy, especially with what happened last time, I’m getting to the point where I think, f**k everything. It’s the one time in my life I’m allowed to do nothing.”
