When Adele joked about taking four or five years off to just clown around and relax, I had hoped she was kidding. But I don’t think that is the case. Today the singer announced that she and boyfriend Simon Konecki are expecting their first child together.
She wrote the news on her website:
“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.”
She has made no secret of wanting to be a mother, saying she hopes to have three sons by the age of thirty.
“I really want to be a mum. I better start getting on with it!”
I am excited for her, I think she will be a fabulous mother.
This certainly seems to be Adele’s year. She was listed at number five on VH1′s 100 Greatest Women In Music, Time named Adele one of the most influential people in the world, and she was nominated for and won six Grammy awards. Add a baby to the mix and it sounds like a pretty good year to me!
She has been pretty busy and a break is well deserved. Honestly, I prefer it. i hate when an artist blows up and then rushes out another album just to ride the fame wave. The music usually sucks and takes away from their talent (Cough, cough, Lady Gaga). I think when an artist takes their time, it comes out much better and is less insulting to the fans.
I look forward to seeing Adele’s baby bump pop and wish her a healthy and happy pregnancy!
