(CNN) -- This is one baby who'll get to hear some fantastic lullabies.
Powerhouse vocalist Adele has announced that she's expecting her first child with her boyfriend Simon Konecki, with a short and simple post on her blog.
"I'm delighted to announce that Simon and I are expecting our first child together," she wrote, adding, "I wanted you to hear the news direct from me."
The couple is "over the moon" and "very excited," she said, but they do ask that people "please respect our privacy at this time."
Adele, who sung her heart out on the chart-topping and Grammy-winning "21" about past heartbreak, is rumored to have met Konecki last summer, and she blogged about their relationship in January of this year, clearing up misconceptions about his marital status. (He's divorced, she clarified, and has been for four years.)
"He's wonderful," she told Vogue of Konecki earlier this year. "And he's proud of me, but he don't care about what I do or what other people think. He looks after me. I don't think I would have gotten through the recovery for my surgery if it hadn't been for him."
She added that she's in a good place with her beau, ready to "write a happy record, and be in love and be happy."
No doubt those good feelings will continue with baby making three.
