Adele announces she is pregnant

Twitter

“I’m delighted to announce that Simon and I are expecting our first child together,” the 24-year-old artist announced 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”

Adele, 22, and Simon Konecki, 36, made their first appearance together in January 2012, when they were spotted leaving a friend’s party.

Soon after, rumors that Simon was still married surfaced but Adele was quick to deny them on her blog. “This is the first and last time I will comment on the details of my relationship with Simon,” she wrote in response to the allegations. “Contrary to reports and headlines in the press today, Simon is divorced and has been for 4 years.” The singer was previously in a relationship with part-time DJ Ned Biggs, who is rumored to have been the source for some of her heartbreaking songs.
