The British star, who welcomed her daughter into the world on Tuesday night, says she can't uncross her eyes because she feels so shattered.

She said: "Can't uncross my eyes. Unique mixture of tiredness and strong painkillers."

The mum-of-two, who has named her new bundle of joy Marine Rose, was asked by her friend, DJ Lauren Laverne whether she was putting her feet up now that she has arrived.

Lily Allen responded: "Yeah right" before dishing the details on her exhausted state.

But she had time to thank everyone on Twitter for all the baby congratulations, posting: "Quite overwhelmed by all the well wishing going on. THANKYOU everybody x x x"

Marnie is the latest addition to the family of Lily and husband Sam Cooper, who already have a daughter Ethel.

A source close to the couple told The Sun they are just thrilled to have another little lady around the house.

The source says: "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."

However, don't expect any baby photos being splashed around anytime soon as the pair are notoriously private when it comes to their children.

Since having Ethel last November, Lily and Sam have managed to keep her totally away from the the limelight and we expect they will decide to do the same with Marnie Rose.
