Songstress Adele expecting first child
July 1 , 2012
Pop star Adele is expecting her first child, she has told fans via a message on her website.
The 24-year-old said she and her partner Simon Konecki were "delighted to announce" that they were having their first child together.
The London-born singer had the world's biggest-selling album last year with 21, which sold more than 17 million copies.
The record largely discusses the break-up of Adele's previous relationship. It has earned her six Grammys, two Brits and two Ivor Novello awards.
The singer has been dating Konecki, who established the Drop4Drop charity, since last year.
