Adele announces she is pregnant
"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." Yours always, Adele xx."
The "Someone Like You" singer first stepped out with Konecki, 36, in January of this year, and he was her date the next month for her mega-victorious night at the Grammys.
Charity entrepreneur Konecki (who went to posh boarding school Eton, which Princes William and Harry also attended) is already father to a five-year-old daughter with ex-wife Clary Fisher.
Adele has never hidden the fact that she wanted children, nor that she was in any hurry to follow-up "21," which has sold over 9 million records in the United States and has been in the top 10 for 70 consecutive weeks (it's at No. 7 this week), spending 24 of those in the No. 1 slot.
