LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA, UNITED STATES  ( POOL) - Adele is expecting her first child with boyfriend Simon Konecki. The Grammy-winning singer made the announcement on her official website on Friday (June 29).

"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," the singer wrote.

Adele and Konecki have been dating since January. The announcement tops off a whirlwind 18 months which saw the singer become a worldwide sensation with her heartbreak album "21," which still sits in the top ten of the Billboard 200 chart and earned her six Grammy awards.
