Rumor has it that Adele has BIG news – news that involves nausea, strange cravings and rolling in a deep pile of diapers.
That’s because she’s pregnant! On Friday in her blog the singer announced that she’s expecting her first child with her boyfriend Simon Konecki:
I'm 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
While we love Adele and want to respect her privacy, it’s going to be really hard because – as I said – we LOVE Adele!
This news comes as a surprise because Adele has previously admitted that she wasn’t planning on having children until she was at least 30. Since she’s only 24 now, she’s a bit ahead of schedule. Of course that’s hardly surprising for someone who won so many awards at such a young age and writes like an old soul.
It’s also nice to see that Adele is so over her old relationship blues, that same relationship which motivated those Grammy-winning songs we love and can all relate to. Of course you have to wonder what kind of songs Adele’s pregnancy will inspire. With all the good fortune she’s had lately, will she be able to bring the same heat on her next CD?
I’m betting yes…and thinking an Adele children’s album might be kind of cool. What do you think?
