Days after revealing she suffered a miscarriage, British singer Lily Allen is being treated for the potentially lethal blood poisoning condition septicaemia.

"She is responding well to treatment and her condition continues to improve," a rep for Allen, 25, told the U.K.'s Daily Mail after she was rushed to the hospital Friday evening. "Lily thanks everyone for their messages of support and again asks that she and partner Sam Cooper be left alone whilst she recovers."

The bacterial blood condition can develop into septic shock if untreated.

Allen's hospitalization comes five days after it was confirmed the six-months-pregnant singer had lost her baby. Nearly three years ago, she had a miscarriage during her relationship with musician Ed Simons.

Allen has said having children is "ultimately my main goal" in life.
