A baby is on the way for Adele! The Grammy-winning singer, 24, announced she's expecting her first child today with boyfriend, Simon Konecki, the founder of Drop4Drop non-profit organization. “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 wrote on her website. Konecki is 38, and the pair first stepped out publicly at the Grammys, as seen here. What an exciting burst of good news on a summer Friday! Congratulations to the couple.
