Adele has given birth to a healthy baby boy. This is the first child for the 24-year-old singer and boyfriend Simon Konecki, who already has a 5 year old daughter from a previous relationship, confirms Us Weekly. Back in June Adele confirmed the news that she was expecting when she posted a message on her official website.
“I’m delighted to announce that Simon and I are expecting our first child together,” Adele wrote. “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 pregnancy has had a big impact on her songwriting!” explains a close source. The insider also confirms that Adele’s new album will be lighter in tone than her breakup-themed disc 21, released in early 2011.
Adele is going to be a mom!
The 24 year old UK singing sensation confirmed the news on her official website earlier today.
She wrote, “Im 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”
Adele and boyfriend Simon Konecki, 38, went public back in January and have recently sparked rumors of an engagement. The singer was spotted wearing, what looked to be, a diamond engagement ring just last month.
No confirmation on the engagement but we are excited for the singer. It’s no secret a previous relationship left her heartbroken, motivating her to pen songs for her six time Grammy winning critically acclaimed album ’21′.
She’s so deserving. Congrats Adele!

TIME magazine has just released their pick for the ’100 Most Influential People’ of 2012. Among them, Rihanna, Jermey Lin, Adele, Chelsea Handler, President Barack Obama, Viola Davis and a long list of “doers” not accustomed to being in the public eye but have managed to influenced us, in one way or another.
As TIME puts it, “The nature of influence changes. The word originates from the medieval idea that a magical liquid emanates from the stars to influence our actions on earth. Modern influence often comes from the magical ability of technology and social media to overcome time and distance and reorder our perceptions. Before microphones and television were invented, a leader had to stand in front of a crowd and bellow. Now she can tweet a phrase that reaches millions in a flash. Influence was never easier — or more ephemeral.
Which is why we try to choose those people whose influence is both lasting and, with a few notable exceptions, laudable.”

During a recent interview with the UK’s Jonathan Ross Show, Rihanna opened up discussing the single life and loving Adele’s music at the moment.
On Being Single
“Yes I am a single lady. This is not something I enjoy. Single life is overrated,” she explained. “You always want to be single when you are in a relationship but trust me it is no bueno. You don’t want to live your life and then meet someone, you want to share your life with someone. I feel like that is what I am missing right now.” She then described her ideal man as being, “cool, fun, funny”.
Her Obsession With Adele
“Really I came to the Brits to stalk Adele, it was nothing about the awards or the performance, for me it was just to see Adele again. She doesn’t know the depth of my affection. She has no idea.” Rihanna adds she eventually had to stop listening to Adele’s Grammy Award-winning sophomore record, ’21′, because it made her sad. “I had to stop listening to it cuz it was depressing me so much. You become so attached to the stories, it’s really something you identify with.”
Rihanna also performed single “Talk That Talk” live for the first time. See her interview and performance below.
