(Newser) – Adele has another reason to celebrate: The 24-year-old Brit singer and her boyfriend are expecting their first child together. "I wanted you to hear the news direct from me," she wrote on her official blog, which has since crashed. "Obviously we’re over the moon and very excited but please respect our privacy at this precious time." Boyfriend Simon Konecki, 36, is CEO of the Drop4Drop charity, notes MSNBC. It's not clear how far along she is.
