Rumor has it…Adele is expecting a baby!

Except it's not a rumor, as the 24-year-old Grammy-award winning singer took to her website to announce the happy news herself.

"I'm delighted to announce that Simon and I are expecting our first child together," Adele writes on her blog. "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."

Adele and Simon Konecki, a 36-year-old charity entrepreneur, were first spotted together in January 2012.  Just last month, Adele shot down reports that the two were engaged. This is the first child for the "Someone Like You" singer, and the second for Konecki, who has a 5-year-old daughter with his ex-wife, fashion stylist Clary Fisher.

Congrats to the soon-to-be parents! We can't wait for the songs Adele will write about her bundle of joy!
