And now Adele is gearing up for the birth of the baby, expected to happen any day now.

In the meantime, Adele is hoping for chart success with her theme tune for upcoming Bond movie Skyfall.
The singer, who officially released the track last Friday, explained that she had been slightly hesitant at first about taking on such a mammoth task, but after reading the movie script, she decided she wanted to combat the challenge.
on a US TV show recently, Bond star Daniel Craig said: ‘When Adele’s name came up I just
jumped at it, I just said, “We have to get her.”
'I just thought that she has the voice and she’s got the tone that we wanted.’
The theme tune, also titled Skyfall, marks Adele's first new music since multi-milllion selling second album 21, released in January 2011.
Adele announced her pregnancy back in June, writing on her official blog: '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'
Adele and Simon started dating last summer and moved in together earlier this year. Simon also has a five-year-old daughter with his ex-wife Clary Fisher.
