Songstress Adele expecting first child

  • 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.
