Adele has landed a new gig: Mom.
According to various reports out of the UK, the singer has given birth to a baby boy. The Daily Mail reports that Adele welcomed her newborn together with boyfriend Simon Konecki on Friday.
A source close to the family said that “Adele and Simon are ecstatic at their new arrival,” continuing, “She was over the moon that they were expecting their first child together.”
On the contrary, Adele’s spokesman said of Friday night’s reported birth: “We are not releasing a statement at this time. No comment.”
You now know everything there is to know about Adele’s baby.
The 24-year-old crooner began dating 38-year-old charity boss Konecki late last year, announcing her pregnancy in a post on her website in June. “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.”
Adele’s baby boy will join Konecki’s five-year-old daughter with ex-wife Clary Fisher in the couple’s family. Adele was reportedly due in September, and several media outlets suggested that she and Konecki would be tying the knot shortly before the baby’s arrival. “I’m not married…Zzzzzzz,” Adele answered via Twitter in late August.
The birth of Adele’s baby is the latest entry in a new trend among high-profile celebrities, in which they closely guard the details of their personal lives. Megan Fox gave birth recently, though kept the details under wraps, Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel were secretly married this weekend, and Ryan Reynolds and Blake Lively wed several weeks prior. Let’s not forget the infamous Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart break-up and make-up, of which virtually nothing is concretely known. Sometimes I wonder if they even really exist.
In any case, congratulations to Adele and Simon Konecki on their first child together!
