Adele is probably engaged to her baby-daddy: “She wants to be a wife & mom”

I hoped this news wouldn’t get lost in the Tom Cruise-Katie Holmes drama, but it kind of did. Adele, Grammy-winning superstar singer, is pregnant. She’s 24 years old. Her baby-daddy is Simon Konecki, her boyfriend of LESS THAN A YEAR. And he’s 14 years older. And he might still be married (but he tells Adele that he totally divorced, so maybe we should take her word for it?!?!?). I don’t know. I’m worried about her, y’all. But Adele is going to do whatever she wants, and whatever happens… well, at least her next album will be amazing, right? Anyway, Us Weekly says that Simon is going to propose. You mean he hasn’t already?!?

Baby and a wedding! Adele announced Friday that she and her boyfriend of nearly a year, Simon Konecki, are expecting their first child. But the “Rolling in the Deep” singer will also be expecting a wedding.

A source reveals in the new issue of Us Weekly, out now, that divorced dad Konecki, a 38-year-old nonprofit CEO, is in the market for a ring: “He was planning to propose anyway!”

The 23-year-old Grammy winner, who is nearly four months along, wrote on her Website Friday, “I’m 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.”

Raised by a single mom, a pal tells Us that Adele “wants a low-key affair where her mother gives her away.”

More than anything, says the insider, “she wants to be a wife and mom.”

Oh, and he already has another kid? Probably by his wife. Ex-wife? Why haven’t the British tabloids been able to nail that down? I’m not talking about stalking Simon’s ex or anything, but just doing a check to see if Simon and his ex really are divorced, you know? Because if he’s still married, I don’t think he should be proposing to Adele.

As for Adele being four months along already… that means she got knocked up around the Grammys in mid to late February, probably? Which means that she got knocked up when she and Simon had only been together for about four or five months. I know, I know. Some of you will say “Sometimes you just KNOW, K.” I believe that some of you can and do KNOW. I also believe that Adele has a really bad track record with men (see: her last album), and she shouldn’t jump into things so quickly. But if she didn’t pour her heart into everything, we wouldn’t have her music, right?

    good for Adele :) Wish her the best!

    It may be sketchy, but I don’t think that matters to much. If she wants the baby, that’s all that should matter. If he leaves her in six months time, she isn’t going to be left broke and alone struggling to raise a baby for the rest if her life.

    As much as I love Adele’s music, you can see she has the mindset of those women who “just want to be a wife and mom”. What exactly does that mean to them? They don’t know. But instead of taking time to know someone, build a relationship and- in Adele’s case- to have him sort out his ex issues, they’re like, this is it! I’m getting pregnant!! She seems too smart for that, but I guess not. She’s pregnant by someone who may not be divorced and whom she really doesn’t know all that well. She got pregnant a few months into the relationship. I’m married and a parent and it’s the most important thing in the world to me, but we didn’t jump into marriage and kids right away. It’s usually a recipe for disaster- see Heidi Klum for an example.

    • Schnauzers!!! says:

      Just curious as to how you know what Adele knows about her man and the inner workings of their relationship?? And her mindset of “I’m gonna get pregnant!” ????

      That said, I am really happy for her.

      • Schnauzers!!! says:

        Btw…don’t go judging people by your relationship and choices. Period.

        Just because you think yours works because you “waited”, doesn’t mean you’re in for the long haul either. Everyone is different. Every relationship is different.
        Adele will be fine, no matter what.

      • TheOriginalKitten says:

        I saw nothing judgemental about Jennifer12′s post. I think her point (or at least what I got out of it) was that if you go into a relationship with the mentality of “I want to get married and have kids” you often times set yourself up for disaster. What’s the rush for you young people? Enjoy being in a relationship and enjoy being married, foster the marriage before you jump into having kids. Personally, I think children should be the result of a loving and healthy marriage and marriage shouldn’t be viewed as simply a “stepping stone” to having kids (although it may work out that way). Then we wonder why the divorce rate is 50%…

      • Jennifer12 says:

        Well, that’s what I meant. I don’t know if it’s coming off right- I’m not saying she’s too young or that you’re wasting your time not going to clubs, etc. But it seems like she’s like many women, feeling like her goal of being a mom/wife must be attained immediately and it’s full of all this meaning she’s attached to it. She seems like she rushes into things. And sometimes it works out- my brother and his wife are actually an example of that, though they were already in their 30s when they met- but many times it doesn’t. I mean, she tells every publication that she wants to be a wife and mother and why she’d make a great one and why it should happen as soon as possible…. It just comes off as her having a hole she needs to fill and she thinks being a wife and mother will fill it. And you’re there to fill your kids up; they’re not there to fill you up. You can’t go into every relationship thinking that person’s the one and you should get pregnant with this person. It’s different when you and the person are depending on each other and even more so when you’re trying to parent together and raise a child together. Even if you split up, you still have to co-parent. It’s why you want to know the person you’re with, and be commited, and have a strong relationship. I just remember Britney running around saying how much she wanted kids and to get married and it was full of all this meaning for her but the reality is much different. Again, I love Adele’s music and hope things work out for her, but being a talented musician doesn’t automatically equal the correct choices.

      • Jennifer says:

        Awww adele stan getting her panties in a bunch. Everyone should have kids out of wedlock now with a guy they only been with for a couple of months. Uh ok

    • Jennifer12 says:

      @TheOriginalKitten: That was exactly what I meant. People have this mentality of wanting to have babies- I always wanted to be a mom, too- but it’s an awful idea to rush into it without knowing the person well enough or what you’re getting into. Of course, sometimes it works out great, and I hope that’s the case for Adele. However, the ones who go around proclaiming it as their ultimate goal (see Britney, who was big enough to admit that she didn’t really know what it meant) are usually looking for kids to fill a hole inside them and are stunned by what the reality of it is.

      @Schnauzers: I do not know Adele personally; I was stating an opinion. When you proclaim things from the rooftops, you’re setting yourself up for other people’s opinions and judgments. I mean, you just judged what I wrote on a gossip website where the person who posted an article said basically the same thing. I don’t agree with being pregnant by someone who may or may not be divorced and whom you haven’t know that long. And you don’t agree with me. And, incidentally, I’m an Adele fan.

      • HotPockets says:

        I agree Jennifer and Kitten.

        I’ve been with my husband for almost 6 years and we can’t wait to start a family, but we are still holding off because we still want to grow in our marriage and partnership. Everyone is different, but enjoy the time you’re young and don’t have children, they’re the biggest responsibility one could ever have.

        I don’t understand why people seem to rush everything, babies, marriage, moving in with each other, etc etc. The anticipation leading up to everything is the most exciting part of a budding relationship, so it is ok to take things slow.

        I wish Adele the best, but you don’t know someone after a few months of dating, not even after a couple years, so she might be in for some surprises.

      • Jennifer12 says:

        Ooops, posted my reply in the wrong section. Yes, I agree- everyone wants their instant gratification and are not willing to work on relationships and finding the right person and learning how to be together. It’s immature and childish and often unfair to the kids. “I want a baby!” Okay, why? Do you want to be a mother or do you want a baby? Because they’re two different things. I know a lot of people like that, who run around saying they want to have kids already, and find someone to father the kids, and when reality sets in, it’s usually not a fairy tale ending.

    • MaiGirl says:

      I agree with everything you said, Jennifer12, and I don’t think you are being judgmental. Of course we don’t really know anything because we don’t know any of the people involved, but we can certainly see red flags, even if we don’t know the whole story. Like, is this Simon fool divorced or not? Seems like a simple question, but nobody seems to know, and that’s troubling. The difference in age between 24 and 38 is also of concern. Those are some pretty vital maturin’ years, there, so he’s likely to be the stronger personality in the relationship. They’ve been together only a short time and she turns up pregnant. I get that some women know they want to be married and have kids early, but I always feel that a person is more secure when they talk about wanting marriage and kids with a specific person, not just as a general goal. Then, it’s like any Ken doll will do, you know? I have several divorced friends who married furiously at around 29 because they felt they needed to to have the husband and kids in a timely manner. Also, Adele has talked many times in interviews about being emotionally stunted–not knowing how she feels and having a difficult time expressing her feelings, which is why she learned to write songs. She still struggles, which is not a good sign when your partner is older and more established, and you have a track record of loving hard with crappy men.

      Sorry for the novel, but this chick is my favorite celebrity, and I’m worried that she will get so jacked up behind this dude that she won’t even be able to get another good album out of it!

      • Jennifer12 says:

        Yes, that was well said. (And you, too, Nanny911.) I just think when you’re obsessive about a timeline for marriage and kids and you put all this meaning into them…. it’s coming out bitchy and it’s not how I mean it. Wanting to just BE married and have a baby, and attaching that to someone you’re first serious about just doesn’t seem like it will come out well. I don’t think she needs to party and go to clubs; it’s just that they were living together within 2-3 months of dating and pregnant soon after that, and it just seems like her goal of marriage and pregnancy loom larger than getting to know this person. However, he is a smart guy with a good job, and that does bode well. He’s not a K-Fed. I like Adele and have my fingers crossed.

    • Skinnybetch says:

      Get over yourself!!!

    • Nanny911 says:

      I agree with everything you’ve written. The break up rate for people who have kids before they’re married is much higher than those who marry before having kids…look at Hollywood as an example. Everyone is in such a rush these days.

  4. brin says:

    Hope it all works out for her cause she is awesome!

  5. Nessa says:

    I will always love her. Hoping for the best for her and her baby!

  6. mattlauerrocks says:

    Oh, Adele. That lush plush face!

  7. Liv says:

    I want to be a wife and mom, too, and I’m not – damn you, Adele ;-)

    Let’s hope everything will work out in her favor – knowing somebody for 4-5 months and getting pregnant is not ideal, I’d say, but with 24 it’s acceptable being a mom and with 38 he should be settled and stable. Plus she’s independent and can provide for herself – if things shouldn’t work out.

  8. daz says:

    Having a shitty dad can give you some man issues. Desperate attempt to create the family life she grew up without. Goodluck for her.

  9. EmmaStoneWannabe says:

    As long as they are stable happy and he treats her – and the new addition – right, I’m happy for her. Just please make some more music in the next couple of years!!! …*selfishly hiding*

  10. lucy2 says:

    I don’t think this is as scandalous as some would like it to seem. She’s said he’s been divorced for years, and he and his ex-wife have a daughter. I don’t know why that makes him sketchy, none of that was a big secret to her, but whatever.
    It does seem like they’ve moved quickly in their relationship, so I hope it all works out for them.

  11. Kimlee says:

    I hope she not 4 or 5 montths along because there was photograph smoking up a storm at the Grammys and after that in London.

  12. Jenna says:

    She looks SO damn pretty in that second photo! Love her! But yeah…this is a bit sketchy. =(

  13. T.C. says:

    Getting married due to pregnancy usually won’t last long. Being pregnant and engaged after only 4 months again bad idea. Wish her luck.

  14. hatsumomo says:

    As much as I love her and wish nothing but the best for her; I have a unnerving feeling something is wrong. Like, I cant quite put my finger on it. Aside from the whole is the guy is married or not, being knocked up only four months into the relationship, how young she is, yada yada yada..

  15. Ann says:

    Congrats! The guys is too old for her.

  16. Kosmos says:

    I somehow think they have a stable relationship, so things will work out for them. I think Adele will want to continue her singing career, definitely. Can’t she do that and be a mother, too? I commend her for being so mature at her age and I love her talent.

  17. Violet says:

    Never could understand this ridiculous concept of getting “engaged” to someone who’s already married.

    The whole situation smacks of impulsiveness and desperation to me. She’s known him for all of five minutes, and it sounds like he’s got a sketchy track record as husband and father.

  18. dogfanatic says:

    I feel sorry for her dog Louie

  19. Meggie says:

    How come no ones going ewwwww? She prefers going bareback like the douche-y Maroon-5 lead singer? If she got preggers after 4 months then that’s some risky behavior right there, regardless if your well loved by the public or not. Real classy, Adele.

  20. Ally says:

    Oy vey, first Lily Allen with this silliness and now Adele.

    There’s a ‘where are they now’-style interview show in France, and the women ex-stars consistently say that in hindsight they regret putting their relationships ahead of their career.

    At least Madonna and Beyoncé didn’t drop out for marriage/maternity leave while they were at the top of their game.

  21. Erin says:

    I LOVE Adele and am happy for her but it does seem sketchy. But hey, look on the bright side…if it doesn’t work out, it will be an even better comeback album after the baby, eh??
