Adele is a new mom! The eight-time Grammy winner gave birth to a healthy baby boy on Friday. It’s the first child for Adele, and the second for her fiance, Simon Konecki, who has a five-year old daughter with his ex-wife.
In the time since confirming her pregnancy on her official blog in July, the 24-year-old pop star has remained largely out of the spotlight as she focused on her baby-to-be. “The baby is healthy and she’s so excited!” an Adele confidant told Us Weekly in late September.
Going back into the recording studio to belt out “Skyfall,” the theme song for the new James Bond film just prior to giving birth, Adele is also working on her next full-length album. Her new music, a source explains, will be inspired in large part by her new bundle of joy.
“The pregnancy has had a big impact on her songwriting!” explains the insider, who tells Us the new album will be lighter in tone than her breakup-themed disc 21, released in early 2011.
New music isn’t the only thing the busy mom has on her upcoming agenda. She and Konecki, 38, are anxious to wed! Raised by a single mom, a pal tells Us that Adele “wants a low-key affair where her mother gives her away.”
More than anything, says the insider, “she wants to be a wife and mom.”
I want to know what she named her son! Congrats to the couple!
Adele has been hired to sing the theme song for the newest James Bond film, Skyfall, and we’re finally getting our hands on it! It is absolutely amazing! The song, which Adele co-wrote, is called “When the Sky Falls”.
Isn’t it awesome! Within hours of the song being released, it jumped to #1 in the UK and on iTunes, replacing Psy’s “Gangnam Style” (thank God!).
The song was recorded alongside a 77-piece orchestra.
Loooooooooooooooooooove it! Could Adele win an Oscar for this song??? I think so!

Adele is about eight months pregnant, and until now, we haven’t had a chance to see her with a baby bump! She was spotted in London on July 30, holding her pregnant belly!
The 24-year-old Grammy winner announced her pregnancy in July on her website. Life & Style caught a picture of her leaving dinner at Eight Over Eight and window shopping at Fulham Road’s antique shops.
“Adele was relaxed and calm, and she and Simon looked really great together,” an eyewitness tells Life & Style. “She seemed very, very happy. She absolutely does have a pregnancy glow.”
But there may have been a second reason for the twinkle in Adele’s eye. The singer, who’s been dating entrepreneur Simon Konecki for the past year, was sporting a gold band on her ring finger, Life & Style can exclusively reveal.
“Adele and Simon managed to keep the baby news a secret for so long that there are rumors they’ve already gotten married, too,” reveals an insider. “She’s an old-fashioned girl and can’t wait to be part of a family unit. She just wants to focus on the baby and the man she loves.”
Last month Adele announced via her website that she was pregnant. Now, sources are reporting that the six-time Grammy winner is actually due in as little as two months, making her 7 months pregnant! Even more interesting, that means she was pregnant during her perfect performance at the Grammy’s in February!
“Adele has barely left the house in recent months, so she could keep this to herself for as long as possible,” an insider told Heat magazine. As supporting evidence, the publication also duly points out that the songstress didn’t attend the Billboard Awards in May, even though it was predicted that she would win a number of awards (in fact, she swept up 12 gongs).
Adele, 24, is expecting her first baby with boyfriend Simon Konecki, 38, with whom she made her first public appearance at the Grammys; the pair have been officially dating since January, when Adele cleared up rumors on her blog. Konecki is rumored to be proposing to the singer soon.
