She’s taken the world by surprise, became one of the hottest stars of the moment and let her music be inspired by her personal experiences. Adele is adding one more success to her already comprehensive list, but this time on a highly personal level. Adele, who hasn’t been exactly shy about revealing her desire to become a mom is currently living her dream.

The exciting news was revealed by none other than the songstress herself, who showed her love for fans by revealing the news herself rather than waiting for tabloid speculations before confirming as it was the case for so many other celebs. In a blog post titled ‘I’ve Got Some News’, the star wrote:

“Im 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 this is Adele’s first baby, Simon will become a father for the second time, as he has a daughter from his previous marriage.

The star was first photographed with financier/philanthropist boyfriend Simon Konecki this February, when he accompanied her to Grammys where she dominated all the categories she was nominated to and walked home with no less than six awards.

As the star previously stated that her next album will be inspired by her life experiences we cannot help but wonder how the star will translate these feelings into major hits. Until then, however, we can only congratulate her sincerely and wish her a healthy, worry-free pregnancy.
