Lily Allen has revealed that a new song she contributed for the movie Pan was written in memory of her late baby boy.
Allen suffered a stillbirth after contracting a viral infection and was admitted into hospital in 2010.
The singer spoke about the incident candidly on Twitter to her 4.3 million followers.
“It’s unlike me to discuss this sort of thing so publicly but I wrote this song in his memory when writing something for @panmovie,” she said.
“I delivered a beautiful baby boy, but sadly he didn’t make it.”
She linked to the donation page for Sands, the Stillbirth and neonatal death charity, and asked people to consider donating something in memory of her late son.
Allen is now mother to two daughters; Ethel, who was born in 2012, and Marnie, born in January 2013.
Her new song, "Something’s Not Right", is included on the soundtrack to the film Pan, a live-action reboot of the Peter Pan franchise.
