Adele gave birth to a baby boy on Friday, she & Simon Konecki reportedly ‘ecstatic’

Adele has finally given birth! Allegedly! It’s being widely reported in the UK media, so I think it’s for real. Apparently, Adele gave birth on Friday… to a baby boy! We don’t know the name yet. Adele’s last name is Adkins and her baby-daddy’s name is Simon Konecki. Will the name be… something like… Harry Ginger Adkins-Konecki? Unknown.

Adele has reportedly given birth to a baby boy. New reports claim that the 24-year-old singer and partner Simon Konecki welcomed their child on Friday night.

She is said to be ‘ecstatic’ by the baby’s arrival.

A source is quoted as saying: ‘Adele and Simon are ecstatic at their new arrival. She was over the moon that they were expecting their first child together.’

Her spokesman said of Friday night’s reported birth: ‘We are not releasing a statement at this time. No comment.’

Adele announced her pregnancy back in June, writing on her official blog: ‘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’

Adele and Simon started dating last summer and moved in together earlier this year. Simon also has a five-year-old daughter with his ex-wife Clary Fisher.

It’s double (07) excitement for Adele. She is hoping for chart success with her theme tune for upcoming Bond movie Skyfall. The singer, who officially released the track last Friday, explained that she had been slightly hesitant at first about taking on such a mammoth task, but after reading the movie script, she decided she wanted to combat the challenge.

Speaking on a US TV show recently, Bond star Daniel Craig said: ‘When Adele’s name came up I just jumped at it, I just said, “We have to get her.” I just thought that she has the voice and she’s got the tone that we wanted.’

The theme tune, also titled Skyfall, marks Adele’s first new music since multi-milllion selling second album 21, released in January 2011.

Congratulations to Adele. I really am happy for her, and I truly don’t want all of this to end up a complete mess. I’m throwing a side-eye at Simon because I think his situation is somewhat sketchier than Adele has been led to believe (the questions over whether or not he’s actually divorced, plus he seems to come from family money, maybe…?). I’m also a little bit sad about all of this because I worry that Adele will stop recording and touring and stuff now that she’s a mum. Still… congrats to Adele and Simon! I’m glad everyone is doing okay, and I hope the baby is a ginger.

    Congrats Mommy!!

    I’m still out on the father, there is something real tricky about him.

  2. kristin says:

    Can’t wait to hear the name!!!

  3. EnuffSaid says:

    Love, love, love her since she first graced our shores years ago…I’m so happy for her!!

  4. Blue says:

    Ya for them!!! I’m going to give her the benefit of the doubt and say she was smart enough to get all the details from him and maybe even use her money and resources to double check everything before continuing to date and then taking such big steps like moving in and getting pregnant.

      Give her the benefit of the doubt? Based on what? Both of her albums were written about two different guys she dated for a yr or less. She falls into love way too fast. There is nothing wrong with wanting to be married and have kids; wanting it so badly you settled for the first thing that comes along makes it a problem. Now she has dragged a kid into it so I hope for her sake it works out. It is not smart to get knocked up by someone you have been dating after a couple of months. Getting stuck raising a kid alone will suck and so will co parenting with someone you can’t stand.

      I love Adele so much and I really hope this guy is the real deal.

        Jlo anyone. If this was Jlo, hell Jlo is getting all kinds of hate because she is with that Casper person. I get that everyone LOVES Adele and wants her happy. but being a nice woman and being talented does not mean you are smart in the area of love and knowing if someone is a loser. Not saying he is because I don’t really follow her. Love her music. but again doesn’t mean she can’t get played and hard.

        and congrats on the arrival of their child. They must be so happy. Does he have another child. I hope the children can be close.

      • Iggles says:

        I see your point Lostlucy!

        She does seem to fall quite fast. (Didn’t the first guy turn out to be into men?)
        The upside for us is that she makes incredible music by tapping into her pain (unlike others.. cough*taylor swift*cough). But the stakes are much higher for her this time around, since now a child is involved. I do wish her the best! And am hoping she has chosen wisely this time.

      • Blue says:

        :( I’m was just hoping that she learned from her past, or since she became famous she would have more people keeping an eye out for her and keeping her out of sketchy situations. I just hope she didn’t bring a baby into a messy situation.

      • Jennifer12 says:

        Adele, as much as I love her, has always come off as preoccupied with wanting kids and a husband. I mean, the whole “I want 3 sons before I’m 30″ quote? She seemed fixated on the idea of having kids and a partner and would attach those ideas to men that came into her life. They were only together a few months before she conceived and I’m certain it was deliberate. They weren’t even living together when she became pregnant. This can work out (my sibling is proof of that)but it’s a shaky situation and a lot of pressure for a new relationship. If you’re always focused on finding THE ONE and having babies, it tends to follow that you’re in love with love and the idea of what a family is like. But a baby is always a blessing and I hope this has a happy ending for all 4 of them (including Simon’s daughter).

      • CamColty says:

        I was with my ex 8 years and after we broke up it took me 4 months to meet my now husband, and 6 months after that to become pregnant with our first child. 4 years and two kids later we are so crazy in love and wouldn’t have it any other way. I think some people are cynical over “moving too fast” in relationships due to their own personal experiences. To each their own, and I think you’re always learning about your partner as you grow with them. No matter how long you’ve been together

    Now wait a minute wait A MINUTE!!!!

    The celebs drive me nuts with their pregnancy timeline, I thought she was 5 months pregnant max!

    Well er… CONGRATS!

  6. ahoyhoy says:

    I love how this woman can have the #1 song, AND birth a baby in the same week!

    She said in an old interview she wanted boys… How nice for them!

  7. Ellie66 says:

    Congrats Adele! Simon seems a bit shady but I guess we will see. I hope they give the baby a normal name.

  8. bgirl says:

    I love her so much! So happy she has a happy ending for once. Though the not so happy endings made her what she is today and rich to boot!

  9. Meecey says:

    Adele congrats and please don’t name your baby after a fruit!

  10. j.eyre says:

    Glad to hear everyone is doing well – good wishes to all.

    I know nothing about these two other than her song. Based your above report, I shall join you in that side-eye to Simon. Maybe our crossed vision rays can keep him in place.

  11. Aqua says:

    Yes, everything seems to be going her way for now,so congrats to them both.

  12. mst says:

    Good for her. I know Im in the minority here but I really dont like her voice. Theres something irritating about it.

  13. aims says:

    Congratulations Adele! I know babies was something she wanted to do, and boys was important for her. Well done Ms.Adele!! Love to you and your family.

  14. bns says:

    For some reason I thought she’d have a girl. Congrats to them!

  15. May says:

    She’s 24 right? That’s just 2 years older than shady swifty…. It just amazes me the difference in maturity..

    P.S. congrats to adele!!!

  16. Jo 'Mama' Besser says:

    I don’t know.

  17. Sassy says:

    Adele is absolutely lovely. It is wonderful to see a woman who is heavier wearing beautiful, appropriately tailored and gorgeous dresses/gowns. If only the Oprah Winfrey types would follow her style. You can look wonderful when you are bigger if you have great hair, makeup and grooming and of course, a dressmaker who knows your body.

  18. Harpreet says:

    I always forget how young she is (I know her album titles are tied to her age), but it is weird she is only two years older than Swifty!

  19. kpist says:

    Love Adele and happy for them, I am tired of the “over the moon” statement though.

  20. lis rae says:

    congrats to adele but isn’t the not telling the name a bit boring.It’s not original Lily Allan has done it already so stop being so pretentious and let your fans know your sons name
