In these times of austerity, even the stars are feeling the pinch – including pregnant singer Lily Allen.
The mum-to-be is hoping that she and husband Sam Cooper have a sister for their 13-month-old daughter Ethel – so that she doesn't have to buy new clothes.
The 27-year-old said: "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."
Commenting on the experience of her second pregnancy she tweeted: 'Alien, inside me. #weird'.
A bit of advice, Lily, from a dad who knows all about the benefits of hand-me-downs: when you pass on the older child's second-hand-clothes to the younger, wrap them like a present and pretend they're a special treat. They won't know the difference!
