Adele and her boyfriend Simon Konecki are said to be “ecstatic” at the arrival of their first child together, a baby boy born on Friday night. This is the first child for Adele, Simon has a 5-year-old daughter from his previous marriage.
The couple moved in together in the early part of this year, but have been dating since last summer. They announced her pregnancy in June and were “over the moon”, whilst asking the media to “respect their privacy”.
This has been an amazing year for the 24 year old singer. She has won 6 Grammy Awards, 2 Brit Awards, is the voice behind the new James Bond song ‘Skyfall’ and has now brought a new baby into the world. Not at all bad for a young girl who was discovered on the social networking site MySpace by XL Recordings in 2006.
There is a lot more to come from this young starlet, as her father has said, “I don’t think she’s even as good yet as she will be one day. She’s still learning and her voice is still maturing. I think in ten years’ time Adele will still be huge.”
