It came as a shock when Adele announced out of nowhere that she's pregnant with her first child (by 38-year-old boyfriend Simon Konecki) -- but the true shock might be just how close the 24-year-old is to giving birth.
We assumed that the British pop star and Grammy winner was only a couple of months along, but reports that originated on HeatWorld.com now claim that the "Rolling in the Deep" is set to pop out a little bundle of joy in as few as two months!
HeatWorld says that Adele has hidden how far along she allegedly is (seven months by their count!) by skipping such marquee events as the Billboard Music Awards and appearing at the Ivor Novello Awards in a loose-fitting black dress.
"Adele has barely left the house in recent months, so she could keep this to herself for as long as possible," the site's source claims. "She stopped exercising a few months ago, and since then it's been all about the baby."
If that's the case, then Adele would have been pregnant around the time she accepted her six Grammys this year, and she'll be due in September. We aren't sure how much we buy into this report -- the details seem sketchy at best -- but time literally will tell just how true it is.
One thing that's undeniable, however, is Adele's enthusiasm for impending motherhood.
"I'm delighted to announce that Simon and I are expecting our first child together," she wrote when she broke the baby news on June 29. "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."
