Lily Allen wants another girl so she doesn't have to buy new clothes.

The pregnant pop star already has a 13-month-old daughter Ethel with husband Sam Cooper, and she hopes the couple's new baby - due this month - is a girl, too, so she can wear her sister's old outfits.

The cost-effective 'Smile' singer told the Daily Express newspaper: ''Fingers crossed it's a girl. Then I can dress her in leftovers from the last baby. That's important. I don't want to have to buy anything new.''

Heavily pregnant Lily, 27, hit the red carpet at the British Fashion Awards last week in a floor-length navy blue A.L.C. gown and offered her top tip for dressing a baby bump.

She joked: ''Just don't leave the house, basically.''

Lily - who celebrated daughter Ethel's first birthday on November 25 - recently commented on her pregnancy, saying she felt like she had an alien growing inside of her.

She tweeted: ''Alien, inside me. #weird (sic)''
