Soul sensation Adele is pregnant with her first child.

"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 was recently forced to deny rumours Konecki had proposed to her on her 24th birthday in May, but she has previously insisted she would make a great wife.
She told Vogue magazine, "I am attentive. I will do anything for my man. I am a good cook. I'm funny (and I) always want to have sex. Most girls don't."
The couple began dating late last year.
