Rumour has it Adele is going to be a mother.
Announcing Friday that she is expecting her first child with boyfriend Simon Konecki, the singer took to her website to confirm the news.
“I’m delighted to announce that Simon and I are expecting our first child together,” said the Grammy award-winning singer. “I wanted you to hear the news direct from me, obviously we’re over the moon and very excited but please respect our privacy at this precious time.”
Adele, 24, has been dating Simon Konecki, 36, since last summer. Konecki, is a former financier who co-founded the United Kingdom bottled water company, Life Water, which also runs a charity called Drop4Drop that brings clean water to developing countries.
