Adele’s indefinite hiatus from music might be lasting a little longer: The singer just announced that she is pregnant with her first child on her official website.
“I’m delighted to announce that Simon and I are expecting our first child together,” she 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 father of the child is Adele’s boyfriend Simon Konecki, co-founder of the U.K. bottled water company Life Water. Konecki, 36, divorced his first wife four years ago.
Adele’s 2011 album 21 has sold 9.3 million copies to date. She has been on a break since October of 2011 as she continues to recover from surgery due to a vocal cord hemorrhage.
