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.
