Adele has fuelled speculation she has got married after she was spotted with a gold band on her ring finger.
The 'Someone Like You' hitmaker is thought to have tied the knot with her fiance Simon Konecki – who she has been dating for around a year - in secret just weeks away from giving birth to her first child.
A source told Life & Style magazine: "Adele and Simon managed to keep the baby news a secret for so long that there are rumours they’ve already gotten married, too.
"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."
Marc Shapiro, author of 'Adele: The Biography', insists he "wouldn't be surprised" if Adele had already married Simon because it sounds like something she would do.
He explained: “It wouldn’t surprise me if she were already married. My gut would tell me that’s what she’d do. Her parents weren’t married, but Adele is very family-oriented.”
Adele revealed to fans in June that she and Simon were expecting their first child together.
In a post on her website, she said: "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. Yours always, Adele."
