Adele is pregnant. The 24-year-old singer didn’t mess with tabloids or Twitter to break the happy news; instead, she posted an update on her blog.
“I’m delighted to announce that Simon and I are expecting our first child together,” she wrote. “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.”
The Simon she speaks of is Simon Konecki, a charity entrepreneur. The two have been together since at least January 2012, when they were spotted out together. This will be Adele’s first child and Konecki’s second.
Congratulations, Adele! Think your bun in the oven will inspire another record-breaking album?
