Singer Adele’s baby ‘due in two months’
Tuesday 10 July 2012
Despite announcing her pregnancy only two weeks ago the singer Adele is reportedly due to give birth in September.
The 24-year-old musician and her charity worker partner Simon Knoecki confirmed their baby news on 29 June when they published the following statement on Adele’s website:
“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.”
But Heat magazine has published quotes from an unnamed "insider close to the singer” suggesting that she is due to produce her baby in two months’ time, having kept her pregnancy under wraps for nearly seven months.
A source told Heat: '“Adele has barely left the house in recent months, so she could keep this to herself for as long as possible. She stopped exercising a few months ago, and since then it’s been all about the baby."
Adele sold 18m singles and albums last year.
