Adele Is Pregnant and ‘Over the Moon’

The singer announced her big news on her blog as the U.K. news day was coming to an end

As if she hasn’t given the world over 9.3 million gifts already, Adele has shared via her official blog that she and boyfriend Simon Konecki are expecting their first child.

“Im [sic] delighted to announce that Simon and I are expecting our first child together,” she writes, conveniently right around the time the news day ends in the U.K. “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’s comment about hearing the news “direct from her” probably stems from all the leakage that has happened from sources around her in the past year and a half since 21 blew up. Konecki is the 36-year-old CEO of clean-water charity Drop4Drop, so we’re guessing the baby will either be ridiculously talented or ridiculously philanthropic — or both. Either way, it’s probably a pretty safe bet that her next album, which isn’t expected for at least two years, won’t be about heartbreak. Might we suggest a collaboration with fellow “over the moon” parents Peaking Lights?
