Breaking News: Adele Is Pregnant

With reports over the last 24 hours of the TomKat split and Lauren Hill's impending jail term, it's nice to share a good news story this fine Saturday morning. British super-songstress Adele is expecting her first child with boyfriend Simon Konecki.

Adele made the announcement on her website, stating "Im [sic] delighted to announce that Simon and I are expecting our first child together. 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."

Here at MyDaily we can't help but wonder how this turn of events will effect Adele's songwriting - after all, she is renowned for putting her life into her work. It does look, however, as though we might have to wait a while to find out. After the Grammy Awards earlier this year, the singer told US Vogue that she was planning to take some time off to "concentrate on her relationship," which will now include caring for a new baby.

Might wedding bells also be in the air? If you're reading this Simon Konecki, here's some other celebrity engagement rings to get your inspired.
