British songbird Adele announced she is pregnant with her first child on a special message posted on her official website on Friday (June 29). The father of the baby is the 24 year-old singerâ€™s boyfriend, Simon Konecki.
Adele wrote, â€œIâ€™m delighted to announce that Simon and I are expecting our first child together. I wanted you to hear the news direct from me, obviously weâ€™re over the moon and very excited but please respect our privacy at this precious time. Yours always, Adele xxâ€
That was fast! Simon and Adele, best known to sing about heartache, have been dating for less than a year. And the â€œTurning Tablesâ€ singer had said she wanted to wait before starting a family.
Earlier this year, the coupleâ€™s relationship hit the tabloids with rumors Simon was still married to his estranged wife, Clary Fisher, with whom he has a 5 year-old daughter. Adele set the record straight with a statement revealing Simon had been divorced for four years.
Congratulations to the couple!
