Adele has given birth to a healthy baby boy, Us Weekly has confirmed. This was the first child for the 24-year-old singer, who had just shared the news of her pregnancy in June.

"I'm delighted to announce that Simon and I are expecting our first child together," Adele wrote on her official website this summer. "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."

The baby's father is Simon Konecki, co-founder of the U.K. bottled water company Life Water. A week after Adele announced her pregnancy, the news came out that Konecki was planning to propose to the singer.

A source tells Us Weekly that the singer is already at work on her new album, which will reportedly be lighter in tone than Adele's last record, with Adele's experience with the baby serving as inspiration for the new material. "The pregnancy has had a big impact on her songwriting!" the source said.

Adele's breakout 2011 album 21 sold 18 million copies worldwide and spent 24 weeks at Number One. In October of 2011, she was forced to take a break from singing as she continued to recover from surgery due to a vocal cord hemorrhage, but she bounced back earlier this month, contributing the title song to the new James Bond movie, Skyfall.

It has garnered 21 million audience impressions in America on radio. 'Skyfall' is already number 16 on the building Adult Contemporary airplay chart, number 33 on Adult Pop Songs and number 37 on Pop Songs, reports Billboard.

The song is predicted to have sold between 200,000 and 250,000 copies between Friday (October 5) and Sunday (October 7), which marks the end of the tracking week.

Based on these sales, 'Skyfall' is expected to land at number four on the Digital Songs chart after strong download numbers from One Direction's 'Live While We're Young', Taylor Swift's 'Red' and PSY's 'Gangnam Style'.

All of these factors indicate that 'Skyfall' is on course for a strong placing on this week's Hot 100 chart, which will be announced on Thursday (October 11).

Meanwhile, Adele's 'Skyfall' reached number four on the UK singles chart after just 48 hours of being on sale.
