Adele pregnant with first child

Adele and her boyfriend Simon Konecki are expecting

Adele has announced that she is pregnant with her first child.

The ’21’ singer broke the news on her own blog at earlier today (June 29). In a post entitled ‘I’ve got some news’, she wrote:

Im delighted to announce that Simon and I are expecting our first child together. 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. Yours always, Adele xx

The child will be Adele and her boyfriend Simon Konecki’s first together. Konecki, who is divorced, already has a five year old child from his marriage.

Lily Allen wished the couple good luck on Twitter, writing:

Last month Adele won the PRS for Music Most Performed Work award for ‘Rolling In The Deep’ and Songwriter Of The Year at the Ivor Novello Awards at a ceremony in London. Speaking of her single ‘Rolling In The Deep’, the singer told the audience: “I really didn’t think it was going to do anything!”

Glastonbury boss Michael Eavis also recently revealed that he wanted Adele to headline the Pyramid Stage at next summer’s festival, but that the singer said no.
