Adele pregnant with first child | Music News

Apparently six tiny gold gramophone statuettes aren’t enough for all of Adele‘s love, as the highly-decorated singer/songwriter has announced that she and beau Simon Konecki are expecting a little bundle of joy.

“I’m delighted to announce that Simon and I are expecting our first child together,” the 24-year-old announced in a post on her website. “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 singer made no mention of how far along she is, but she does seem to have a preference on the child’s gender. In a February interview with People Magazine, she said that she wanted to have three sons by the time she turns 30.

The child will be the first for Adele and the second for 38-year-old Konecki, who has a daughter from a previous marriage.
