Rumors had been circulating that Adele is pregnant. And this time, it's not just celebrity gossip -- it's true. Adele is pregnant!

"I'm delighted to announce that Simon and I are expecting our first child together," Adele announced on her website on Friday. "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."

This will be the first child for Adele, but not for her beau. Charity entrepreneur Konecki is already daddy to a 5-year-old daughter with ex-wife Clary Fisher.

Adele and Konecki were first spotted together in January 2012 and he accompanied her to the Grammys the following month. The 36-year-old Konecki went to the same boarding school that Princes William and Harry attended.

Dumped for a guy?

Earlier this week Adele was in the news because a new unauthorized biography claims that she was dumped by a mystery man in her late teen years. Getting dumped isn't newsworthy, but the book says that her boyfriend left her for man. Read more about Adele getting dumped.

Rumors aside, we wish all the best to mommy-to-be Adele, Simon and their baby!
