Meanwhile, a source was quoted as saying that "Lily and Ed are in a state of shock. The bad news has been really difficult for them to take and they are absolutely heartbroken. Lily's entire outlook on life changed after she found out she was pregnant. She was looking forward to being a mum and starting a family with Ed. She had turned her back on her party girl image and had turned over a new leaf. They are surrounded by friends and family are offering support. It is a really difficult time for them."
Lily, famous for her hit single "Smile", exclusively revealed her pregnancy with Ed's baby last December. She apparently gave up partying for the baby's sake and had re-arranged her schedule to fit the baby's upcoming birth.
