British singer Adele is expecting her first child with boyfriend, Simon Konecki.

On Friday, the “Rolling in the Deep” singer made the announcement on her site. Adele, 24, wrote:

Im 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 — whose real name is Adele Adkins — and Life Water founder Konecki, 36, made their first public appearance in January 2012 when the couple were snapped leaving Sid Owen‘s 40th Birthday Party at Gilgamesh Restaurant in Camden.

Rumors of marriage began to surface when the songstress was spotted sporting a massive diamond sparkler on her wedding ring finger at the 2012 Brit Awards.

Adele personally took it to her blog to shoot down engagement reports, writing:

This is the first and last time I will comment on the details of my relationship with Simon. Contrary to reports and headlines in the press today, Simon is divorced and has been for 4 years. Everyone in our lives separately and together wish us nothing but the best, and vice versa. These are the facts. Take care and see you all in February xx.

This will be the first child for both Adele and the second from Konecki, who already has a 5-year-old daughter from his previous marriage.
