Adele better get ready to start humming some lullabies, because the British soul singer is officially a mom. She and beau Simon Konecki welcomed a baby boy, People reports.
A family source confirmed the news, saying, “We are all over the moon.”
The new addition to their family joins Konecki’s young daughter from his first marriage.
Adele, 24, remained relatively quiet when it came to her pregnancy, but she did announce on her blog that she and Konecki, 38, were expecting their first child together.
“Im delighted to announce that Simon and I are expecting our first child together,” she wrote on June 29. “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.”
Shortly after the news of Adele’s pregnancy broke, came rumors that she was further along in her pregnancy than everyone thought, with reports suggesting she was due in September.
In August, a photo of a very pregnant Adele landed on the cover of Life & Style Weekly, practically confirming that the singer was getting closer to her due date. Another rumor popped up that she and Konecki had secretly tied the knot. However, Adele was quick to shoot down any nuptial news.
Perhaps marriage isn’t too far away for Adele and Konecki, who have been dating since summer 2011, but right now it seems they are focused on their new bundle of joy. Congrats to the happy couple!
