She's barely been seen in public since she gave birth last November, so it was no surprise that when Lily Allen stepped out with baby Ethel yesterday, she did so in style.
The 26-year-old star was quick to tweet a photo of herself taking her young daughter for a walk in the countryside.
But, in what seems like an obvious promotional tactic, the singer was also keen to point out that she was taking the four-month-old tot for a push in a very expensive Silver Cross pram - and just so happened to tag the high-end brand in her tweet.

Perhaps the navy-blue product - which costs £1,250 - was a generous gift form the company, who have been making the luxurious baby transport since 1877.
However, Lily was keen to show off the pram and nothing else as she kept Ethel well hidden as she posed for a photo and tweeted: 'The @silvercross got its 1'st outing today.'
The Smile singer looked happy and relaxed in the sunshine, and her outfit mirrored this.
Wearing a light-coloured dress with thick black tights and matching ballet pumps, Lily looked feminine yet casual on her day out.
However, Lily isn't the first famous face to push her child around in a pram fit for royalty.
Rod Stewart's wife, Penny Lancaster, has also been spotted in the past pushing their children around in a similar Silver Cross model, while Charlotte Church opted for a pink and cream pram for her daughter Ruby Megan.
Described by the brand as 'the Rolls Royce of prams,' Balmoral is the original coach-built pram and has also been a hit in the past with British ladies Catherine Zeta-Jones and Elizabeth Hurley.
The Balmoral model not only looks good but boasts a hand-sprung chassis, is cushioned with leather suspension straps and features handspoked wheels.
The transport also includes a lever operated brake system, a soft foam mattress for maximum comfort and an extremely large chrome shopping basket.

Hand-painted fine line detailing with the high-gloss body finish and classic Yorkshire rose metalwork makes the pram even more attractive, and it's clear to see why so many celebrities choose to purchase one for their children.
However, noticeably absent from Lily's hand as she pushed Ethel alongside the grass was a cigarette.
The singer was snapped puffing away as she took a break outside the RAK Studios in St John's Wood last week, dressed very casually in black tights, red tartan shoes, a beige skirt and a baggy grey jumper.

Despite announcing two years ago that she was quitting the music charts for good to 'have babies and live in the countryside,' the dark-haired star clearly missed making new tunes.
According to reports, the singer's passion for music has been reignited, and is said to be working on new material and has plans to release an album later this year.
But no doubt, Lily's priority will always be her new role as a wife and a mother.

Ethel was born to Lily and Sam in November, five months after the couple got married in Gloucestershire in June.
The couple began dating in July 2009 and tragically lost their first child, a boy, when Lily was six months pregnant in November 2010.
Last week the pair were snapped out in London for the first time since their little girl was born as they dined at the 34 restaurant in Mayfair.
