Singer Adele has announced on her blog that she is expecting her first child.

In a post titled "I've Got Some News," the singer, 24, writes, "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."

Simon Konecki, 36, is the singer's boyfriend and the CEO of a charity called Drop4Drop. He reportedly has a 5-year-old daughter from a previous marriage.

In May, Adele picked up 12 Billboard Music Awards for her album "21," winning top artist, top female artist, and top album, among other honors. In Febuary, she claimed six Grammys, including best album and record of the year.
