No pregnancy announcement will ever be as spectacular as Beyonce’s, so award winning singer Adele was wise not to try and outdo the Single Ladies star when she revealed she had a bun in the oven on 29 June.

Adele sent a message out on her website saying she was having a child with her boyfriend Simon and that we basically should leave her alone and not expect naked and pregnant Adele photos a-la-Britney-Spears.

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

Anyone who read Adele’s Vogue interview at the start of the year probably saw this coming. The Rolling in The Deep singer told the magazine that she wants to get married, have some kids and that she’s pretty much a sex addict.

Well congrats! And please no celebrity baby names Adele, you’re better than that.
