The little one was born on Tuesday night and the excited parents have named her Marnie Rose Cooper.

A source close to the 27-year-old singer told The Sun newspaper:

"Marnie is a real cutie. Sam and Lily are ecstatic about adding another girl to the family.

"A little sister for Ethel is brilliant news to lift the January blues for the family."

The news comes after Lily's recent pregnancy-craving tweets, revealing her love of curry leading up to the end of her pregnancy.

She tweeted: "3rd curry this week... cosywomb"

And curry wasn't the only weird pregnancy choice.

Lily tweeted she planned to give birth along to heavy metal music:

"My husband is currently making me a Pantera mix cd to take to the birthing suite. #cute (sic)"

We wonder if she actually did!
