Singing superstar Adele is pregnant with her first child.

“I’m delighted to announce that Simon and I are expecting our first child together,” the 24-year-old singer wrote on her website.

“I wanted you to hear the news direct from me,” she continued. “Obviously we’re over the moon and very excited but please respect our privacy at this precious time.”

The Grammy-winning singer first met boyfriend Simon Konecki, 36, a business man who co-founded U.K. bottled water company Life Water, in summer 2011.

The pair first went public in January in Florida during a trip to the Everglade. They also attended the 2012 Grammy Awards together in February, where Adele won six awards including the coveted categories of record, song and album of the year.

The Grammy-winning singer spoke out about rumors surrounding Simon’s past marriage in January on her website, 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, Simon is divorced and has been for 4 years.”
