It’s no rumor; Adele and boyfriend¬†Simon Konecki are expecting their first child, the singer announced on her website today.

Adele rose to fame in Britain with her first album “19,” but it was 2011’s follow-up “21” which catapulted her to stardom in the United States. That album sold over 22 million copies. It was so successful that Adele’s ex-boyfriend sued, claiming he was entitled to a share of the profits because, he argued, it was his painful breakup with her that inspired her lyrics.

A certain fashion designer made headlines when he declared the singer “a little too fat.”

Fans hope the baby will share her mother’s singing talent.
