Adele is expecting her first child with boyfriend Simon Konecki.

The 'Rolling In The Deep' singer, 24, took to her official website late yesterday to make her announcement, which read:

'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'

The singer, real name Adele Adkins, and her 36 year-old charity boss boyfriend were first spotted together at the beginning of this year. Konecki has one child already, a five year-old boy, with his fashion stylist ex-wife.

When details of the couple emerged in mid-January, Adkins took to her website, saying 'This is the first and last time I will comment on the details of my relationship with Simon'.

'Contrary to reports and headlines in the press today, Simon is divorced and has been for 4 years. Everyone in our lives separately and together wish us nothing but the best, and vice versa. These are the facts'.
