British singer Lily Allen is engaged to marry her boyfriend Sam Cooper. The surprised 25-year-old singer is said to have burst into tears when her 32-year-old love popped the question on Christmas Day.

Delighted Lily and Sam had flown away for a last minute festive break following the tragic loss of their baby last month when Lily was six months pregnant. After spending some time in Australia, they made their way to Bali, where Sam proposed at sunset on the balcony of their £800-a-night luxury suite.


A friend of the couple, who have been dating since July 2009, told the Daily Mail: “It has been a terrible time for Lily and Sam, but they are totally in love with one another.“It all came out of the blue – but Lily was overwhelmed and they are both overjoyed. They can look to the future now.”According to the newspaper, the pair later celebrated with fellow guests in the hotel bar. One onlooker said: “Lily was telling everyone that she and Sam had just got engaged – they could not keep the smiles off their faces.“It couldn’t have been more romantic. The resort is just so peaceful and picturesque.”

In the past, the Smile singer has described Sam, who is a builder and decorator, as a “normal bloke” and “the love of my life”.“Sam treats me differently. He’s told me he’ll look after me forever,” she said. “That’s what I’ve always wanted.”
