There had been speculation that U.K. singing sensation Adele Adkins tied the knot with her fiancé, Simon Konecki, in a secret ceremony last month. The rumors of her secret marriage were confirmed Thursday after a source close to the pregnant singer, who was also a guest at the wedding, revealed it was a “fabulous occasion.”
The inside source told Mail Online: “They did get married, and I was present. It was a fabulous occasion. Adele was dressed in a classic attire and Simon looked very smart and joyous.”
Rumors of her secret wedding first emerged after Life & Style magazine reported the star was spotted in London last month, showing off her baby bump in a black maxi dress. An eyewitness spilled to the tabloid that the 24-year-old Grammy Award-winning singer was giving off the traditional "pregnancy glow" and was wearing a gold wedding band on her ring finger.
"Adele and Simon managed to keep the baby news a secret for so long that there are rumors they've already gotten married, too," an inside source revealed to the magazine. "She's an old-fashioned girl and can't wait to be part of a family unit. She just wants to focus on the baby and the man she loves."
The witness went on to say that soul superstar Adele was probably enjoying one of her last nights out before giving birth by having dinner at Eight Over Eight and window-shopping at Fulham Road’s.
“Adele was relaxed and calm, and she and Simon looked really great together,” the source told Life & Style magazine. “She seemed very, very happy. She absolutely does have a pregnancy glow.”
Although the photograph gave rise to marriage rumors, there has been no official word from Adele or her fellow British fiancé about the subject.
Adele announced the news of her pregnancy on her official blog on June 29. In a post entitled “I've got some news,” the multi-million selling songstress wrote: "Im 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".
Adele has been dating Simon Konecki, nicknamed “Swampy,” since they met in the summer of last year. Reportedly, they were introduced by singer Ed Sheeran during the time when she was recovering from surgery on her vocal cords.
It is the second marriage for 38-year-old financier Konecki who married Clary Fisher, a London College of Fashion graduate, in 2004. They have a five-year-old daughter.
