Adele has spent £35,000 on sound and lights for her baby's nurseries.

The 24-year-old singer and her boyfriend Simon Konecki are expecting their first child together and the couple are sparing no expense in ensuring the tot will be well looked after.

A source said: "Adele might have a reputation for being a bit of a spendthrift but when it comes to her baby she's sparing no expense.

"She is building state-of-the-art nurseries in all her homes. She's having bespoke wallpaper made and it's costing a fortune with climate control and cameras so she can see everything on her laptop.

"She's spending £35,000 (€28,552) on the lighting and sound system alone."

As well as the nurseries, the 'Someone Like you' hitmaker - who is believed to be due to give birth in September - has also been splurging on clothes and accessories for the baby.

The source added to Reveal magazine: "She's pre-ordered Bon Point unisex baby clothes - and they don't come cheap. And she's already bought three Bugaboo pushchairs and a £600 (€489.45) Moses basket.

"Not to mention the small fortune she's spent in Tiffany's on picture frames and trinkets. She even bought an antique bear for £5,000 (€4,079)."
