Adele could be a lot more pregnant than we first thought - she is reportedly due to give birth in just two months time.

The singer - who announced she was expecting her first child earlier this month - is rumoured to be seven months gone, and has kept it a secret by hiding her bump under baggy clothing, as she did at the Ivor Novello awards.

A source spilled all to Heat magazine, telling them: "Adele has barely left the house in recent months, so she could keep this to herself as long as possible.

"She stopped exercising a few months ago, and since then it's been all about the baby," they added.

Adele and boyfriend Simon Konecki made the announcement about their baby joy with a statement 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."

Meanwhile, she is rumoured to have been in the studio recording her new album.

However, it looks like we won't get to hear it for a few years, as the singer wants to take some time out to be a mother.

"She doesn't want to be travelling the world touring or promoting when she can be at home," a source told the Daily Star.

"Although she's already started masterminding the third album, the chances of fans getting to hear it any time soon are slim to non-existent."

The paper also reports she is working with US composer Dan Wilson, who she worked with on Someone Like You, on the follow up to the monster album 21.
