Adele: Best is yet to come

Adele feels like she has "hit the jackpot" after falling pregnant.

The 24-year-old singer recently announced she and boyfriend Simon Konecki are expecting their first baby and the news has capped off a great year for the star, who has won a string of awards for her most recent album '21'.

A source said: "It's true love for Adele and Simon. They are committed to each other and ready to be a family.

"Adele feels that falling pregnant is like hitting the jackpot. She said, 'I've been on a high for a year with my work and personal life, but the best is yet to come.' "

And the 'Someone Like You' hitmaker is embracing her fuller figure and indulging in her favourite foods.

The source added to Closer magazine: "Adele told friends she's so happy now there's a proper bump. She's joking she wants to eat shepherd's pie until the cows come home."

It was recently revealed that Adele has spent £35,000 (€44,500) on sound and lights for her baby's nurseries.

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 (€44,500) on the lighting and sound system alone."
