British media outlets are reporting that eight time Grammy award winning superstar, Adele, has given birth of her first child, a boy, who was born on Friday.
Adele announced her pregnancy on June 28th on her blog, saying:
"I'm 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"
Since the June announcement, Adele, 24, and her boyfriend, Simon Konecki, 38, have remained relatively quiet about the impending birth of their first child together. Konecki, has a five year old daughter from a previous marriage.
According to the Huffington Post, a photo of a very pregnant Adele was the cover of an issue of Life and Style Weekly in August. Rumors began to circulate that she and Konecki had secretly wed, however Adele denied those rumors quickly, tweeting:
"I'm not married...Zzzzzzz,"
A publicist for Adele told the Guardian they would not be issuing a statement regarding the birth at this time.
