Adele has announced that she is pregnant with her first child with her boyfriend, Simon Konecki.
The 24 year old, Grammy award winning singer is said to be ‘over the moon’ and announced the news on her website by stating, ‘I’m delighted to announce that Simon and I are expecting our first child together’.
Adele also thanked her fans but asked them to respect her privacy at this time.
The ‘Rolling In The Deep’ singer has been with Simon since last summer and recently decided that she was ‘f***ing off for four or five years’ to concentrate on her relationship.
The US Vogue cover star describes her boyfriend as ‘wonderful’ and thanks him for taking care of her following her throat surgery in November.
Adele recently purchased a £7million mansion in Sussex for the couple to live in, contrary to beliefs that Simon was still married to his ex partner. These rumours were later dismissed by Adele, who said that ‘Simon is divorced and has been for 4 years’.
With this special news in mind, we can only hope that Adele will release a lullaby album to tide us over from our five year wait!
