There is even more breaking news today with Adele announcing she is pregnant! The British songstress has revealed she is having a baby with her boyfriend Simon Konecki.

"I'm delighted to announce that Simon and I are expecting our first child together," she wrote to her fans on her website. "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 24-year-old singer and her beau have been dating since last summer, confirming their relationship in January. The pair have faced controversy after it became known that Konecki was married previously. Rumours circulated that he was still married at the time they began their romance. Adele hit back at claims by revealing that Simon had been divorced for four years.

Adele has made no secret of her desire to have a family, telling People magazine that she "really wants to be a mum," and that it's her goal to have three kids by the age of 30. In February, she bought a £7 million mansion in Sussex for the couple to live in.

There is no news on when Adele is due to give birth to her first child or what the sex of the baby is. Congratulations to them both, we hope baby inherits his mum's incredible vocal talents!
