Adele reportedly welcomes a baby boy
Adele is reportedly a new mom.
The 24-year-old singer and boyfriend Simon Konecki welcomed a baby boy, People magazine reports. The magazine cites a family source. Meanwhile the UK newspaper The Daily Mail claims the Grammy Award-winning singer gave birth on Friday, October 19. If true, it is the first child for the singer.
Adele has not commented on the reports and the Daily Mail quotes her spokesperson as saying, "We are not releasing a statement at this time. No comment."
The singer first announced her pregnancy in June. Adele met Konecki, 36, in the summer of 2011. He reportedly co-founded the UK-based bottled water company Life Water and also heads its charity, Drop4Drop, which brings clean water to developing countries.
"I'm delighted to announce that Simon and I are expecting our first child together," she said. "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."
Konecki has a daughter from a previous marriage, according to the The Daily Mail.
The 24-year-old singer has won eight Grammys since 2008, when she was named Best New Artist, and is known for hit singles such as "Rolling In the Deep" and "Someone Like You." The songs are from her second studio album, "21," an autobiographical record that had a breakup theme inspired by her own love life.
Adele, who took a break from recording music since she underwent vocal cord microsurgery in November 2011, recently sang the theme song for the upcoming James Bond film "Skyfall." The song, also titled "Skyfall," was released earlier this month.
