Adele gave birth to a healthy baby boy on Friday. It’s the first child for the eight-time Grammy winner, and the second for her fiance, Simon Konecki, who has a five-year- old daughter with his ex-wife.
Although no official statement has been released, Adele did announce her pregnancy in July, in a post on her website. “Obviously we’re over the moon and very excited but please respect our privacy at this precious time,” she wrote. Although there were reports that the couple had married in August, Adele squashed those rumours over Twitter. “I’m not married…Zzzzzzzz,” she tweeted.
Going back into the recording studio to belt out “Skyfall,” the theme song for the new James Bond film just prior to giving birth, Adele is also working on her next full-length album. Her new music, a source explains, will be inspired in large part by her new bundle of joy.
“The pregnancy has had a big impact on her songwriting!” explains the insider, who reported the new album will be lighter in tone than her breakup-themed disc 21, released in early 2011.
New music isn’t the only thing the busy mom has on her upcoming agenda. She and Simon are anxious to wed. Raised by a single mother, a pal said that Adele “wants a low-key affair where her mother gives her away. More than anything, she wants to be a wife and mom.”
