Diamonds are for Lily

Lily Allen shows off her diamond engagement ring for the first time.

The 25-year-old singer, who was left stunned when boyfriend Sam Cooper proposed on Christmas Day, posted a picture on her blog, supposedly to show fans her new manicure.

Instead, Lily gave them their first glimpse of her diamond sparkler, a chic and simple diamond solitaire.

Lily sparked speculation she and Cooper may have already tied the knot, as she was also sporting what appeared to be a wedding band encrusted with diamonds.

Lily apparently burst into tears when Cooper popped the question on Christmas Day, just weeks after she had suffered a miscarriage.

Following their ordeal, the couple had jetted away for a last-minute Christmas break.

They spent several days in Australia before moving on to the exclusive Amankila cliff-side resort on the Indonesian island.

Mr Cooper, 32, proposed at sunset on the balcony of their $1300 a night suite, which overlooks the Indian Ocean.

A friend of the couple said, ‘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.’

The couple celebrated in the hotel bar with fellow guests, drinking champagne and cocktails until the early hours.

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.’

The couple have been dating since July 2009. Miss Allen has described Mr Cooper, a builder and decorator, as a ‘normal bloke’ and ‘the love of my life’.
