Adele ‘welcomes baby boy’

2012-10-22 07:11

London – Adele has reportedly given birth to a baby boy.

The 24-year-old singer is said to have given birth to her first child with boyfriend Simon Konecki last week and is said to be ecstatic.

A source told The Sunday People: “Adele and Simon are ecstatic at their new arrival.

“She was over the moon that they were expecting their first child together.”

The SkyFall singer has been keeping a low profile since announcing she was pregnant four months ago on her official website following weeks of rumours.

The multiple Grammy and Brit-award winner confirmed the news in June, just seven months after she found love with 38-year-old charity worker Simon, who has a five-year-old daughter with his ex-wife, Clary Fisher.

She wrote at the time: “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.”

The couple began dating after meeting last summer but only confirmed their relationship in January.

The singer was forced to deny speculation they had tied the knot in August amid reports Simon had quietly popped the question on her 24th birthday in May.

She wrote on Twitter: “I’m not engaged blah blah.”

A spokesperson for Adele refused to confirm the arrival of her baby boy and would only say: “We are not releasing a statement at this time. No comment.”
