Adele has announced that she’s expecting a child and that she and her boyfriend Simon Konecki, couldn’t be happier.
“I’m delighted to announce that Simon and I are expecting our first child together,” she wrote, adding, “I wanted you to hear the news direct from me.” The couple is “over the moon” and “very excited,” she blogged, but also asks that people “please respect our privacy at this time.”
Adele first blogged about their relationship in January of this year saying she wanted to clear up misconceptions about his marital status. (He’s divorced, she clarified, and has been for four years.)
“He’s wonderful,” she told Vogue of Konecki earlier this year. “And he’s proud of me, but he don’t care about what I do or what other people think. He looks after me. I don’t think I would have gotten through the recovery for my surgery if it hadn’t been for him.” She added that she’s in a good place with her beau, ready to “write a happy record, and be in love and be happy.”
