Last Friday Adele announced that she is expecting her first child with her boyfriend Simon Konecki! The 24-year-old superstar singer wrote on her website: “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.”
Adele met Konecki (36) last summer in the U.K. and they have been together since then. It is great to hear that the singer wanted, and was planning to be pregnant by the end of the year. Konecki already has a five-year-old daughter from his previous marriage.
The singer’s album, 21, has sold 9.3 million copies in the U.S., and according to Rolling Stone, became the biggest-selling record since Usher’s Confessions (2004). Adele continues however to recover from a vocal cord hemorrhage surgery.
After years of disturbing romantic relationships, Adele is finally freed from toxic love and can form a healthy family. This pregnancy is fantastic news, and will prepare Adele for the beginning of a new chapter in her life!
