Lily Allen On What She Learned From Her 2010 Stillbirth: 'I Was Very Fortunate That I Have A Loving Partner To Go Home To And Share That Experience With'

Lily Allen became emotional on "The Jonathan Ross Show" while opening up about giving birth to a stillborn son in November 2010.

Speaking about her stillbirth on the British talk show, which airs Saturday, Nov. 8, the 29-year-old singer-songwriter said: "I think it's difficult for anybody regardless of what world they live in... It was the most unfortunate thing that can ever happen to a person,"  according to Us Weekly.

Despite losing her son, Allen said that she still considers herself lucky because she has his husband Sam Cooper to help her deal with the incident. "Actually what I took home from that experience was...I was very fortunate in the sense that I have a loving partner to go home to and share that experience with," she said of her builder and decorator hubby.

"There are many women - 17 stillbirths in the UK every day - that go home and they don't have that support, they have to go home and deal with that on their own so I am kind of in a bit of a - since that happened - in a 'count my blessings' scenario rather than feeling sorry for myself," the "Somewhere Only We Know" singer said.

In 2010, the Grammy-nominated recording artist and her then-boyfriend Cooper lost their son six months into what had been a very difficult pregnancy after the singer contracted a viral infection, according to Page Six.

Allen also suffered a miscarriage in January 2008 while expecting a baby with then-boyfriend Ed Simons, People reported.

Following her most recent loss, Allen gave birth to her first daughter Ethel Mary in November 2012 and another daughter, Marnie Rose, in January 2013. And while she is already grateful to be blessed with two kids, the singer admitted that she is open to having another one.

"I'd love a boy," she said on "The Jonathan Ross Show."  "And I'd also like another girl just so I can call her Auxiliary Jane or Pizza. I quite like Pizza for a kid, or Megan Lolz that would be good. Megan Lolz."
