British singing sensation, Adele has given birth to a baby boy.

It is believed the ‘Skyfall’ singer and partner Simon Konecki became parents last week – even though she announced the news of her pregnancy in June.

A statement on her official website in June said: “ 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.”

Speaking to the Mirror, a source close to Adele said: “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 the birth last night: “We are not releasing a statement at this time. No comment.”
