Adele Did the Universal ‘Pregnant Woman Belly Cup’ and Sent the Internet Crazy!

adele-belly

Yesterday, Adele did the universal subconscious hand over belly cupping that pregnant women do without even thinking, but only she did it in a photo that she posted on her Instagram account. You know what that means?

She triggered the bump watch brigade as speculation among her fans and followers immediately swarmed in social media that the 28-year old singer-songwriter is expecting her second child with husband Simon Konecki.


Recall that at the end of her North America tour, the multi-Grammy Award winner told the farewell tour audience that she was going to go have a baby, indicating that she will take her time off from touring to grow her family.

We know this may be a false alarm, but there have been several incidences in the past when a celebrity may have been pregnant at a time she was photographed cupping her belly but had not made any big public announcement confirming such news. Mariah Carey and Jennifer Lopez come to mind. (see above and actually Carey later miscarried, we believe)

We have blogged often about the “Bump Watch Speculation” which happens when a celeb woman has overindulged in a meal and is photographed by the paparazzi emerging from a restaurant, wears a dress with an unnatural bubble in it or gains a few pounds that show up in the belly area.  She is immediately presumed to be with child.

It could be nothing. Time will tell. We’ll be waiting. Stay tuned. (smile)

Adele Expounds On her Post Partum Depression During Grammy Acceptance Speech

 

adele-mom

During an award acceptance speech at the 59th Annual Grammy Awards, singer/songwriter Adele gave new insight on the post partum depression she struggled with after giving birth to her now 4-year old son, Angelo.


The multiple-Grammy winning artist had previously shared during a candid interview with Vanity Fair magazine last October that she suffered from the condition though didn’t know what she was going through.

“I had really bad postpartum depression after I had my son, and it frightened me,” she told the interviewer, adding that in lieu of taking medication or talking with a professional to help her cope, she took consult from other moms.

At Sunday’s show, she recounted becoming pregnant after her last album 21 and how the experience and  having PPD made her feel disconnected from the world and all the things she knew as normal.

She credited her team for helping her bound back.

“As you can see it took an army to make me strong and willing again to do it. And I thank you all from the bottom of my heart,”

“And in my pregnancy and becoming a mother I lost a lot of myself and I’ve struggled and I still do struggle being a mum,” the platinum-selling artist said. “It’s really hard. But tonight winning this really feels full circle and like a bit of me has come back to myself.”

Nice!!

She also gave credit to her “husband” Simon Konecki for being her inspiration. It was the first time she had confirmed that she had gotten married.

“Grammys, I appreciate it. The Academy, I love you. My manager, my husband and my son — you’re the only reason I do it,” she said while accepting the award for Album of the Year.

She and Konecki  have been together for five years  and were introduced to one another by fellow British singer Ed Sheeran.

Before, in the Vanity Fair, piece, she talked about how then-boyfriend encouraged her to get out of her funk and to get help.

 

“My boyfriend said I should talk to other women who were pregnant, and I said, ‘Fk that, I ain’t hanging around with a fking bunch of mothers (sic)’,” she tells the publication. “Then, without realising it, I was gravitating towards pregnant women and other women with children, because I found they’re a bit more patient. You’ll be talking to someone, but you’re not really listening, because you’re so f**king tired.”

But while her non-mom friends didn’t get it, her friends with kids totally did.

“My friends who didn’t have kids would get annoyed with me,” she continues. “Whereas I knew I could just sit there and chat absolute mush with my friends who had children, and we wouldn’t judge each other. One day I said to a friend, ‘I fking hate this,’ and she just burst into tears and said, ‘I fking hate this, too.’ And it was done. It lifted.”

She added that she had a tough time self-diagnosing her condition because she wasn’t educated as to what it is.

“My knowledge of postpartum-or post-natal, as we call it in England, is that you don’t want to be with your child; you’re worried you might hurt your child; you’re worried you weren’t doing a good job,” she explains. “But I was obsessed with my child. I felt very inadequate; I felt like I’d made the worst decision of my life… It can come in many different forms.”

She confided that spending time alone helped.

“I just said, I’m going to give myself an afternoon a week, just to do whatever the f**k I want without my baby,” she says. “A friend of mine said, ‘Really? Don’t you feel bad?’ I said, ‘I do, but not as bad as I’d feel if I didn’t do it.’ Four of my friends felt the same way I did, and everyone was too embarrassed to talk about it;

At the end of the North America leg of her tour, Adele announced plans to try to get pregnant again, and is “off to have a baby.”

“I’ll see you on the other side,” she told fans in Phoenix. “In a couple of years I’ll be back [to the States]. You won’t be able to get rid of me.”

While she’s enjoyed spending a few months at home with her family, Adele will soon be headed back to work. She’s kicking off the next leg of her world tour in Australia and New Zealand later this month.

Um… did Adele just low key make a pregnancy announcement before millions of people on Monday during a tour stop?

Maybe. The singer-songwriter phenom told a concert crowd in Phoenix on November 21 as she ended the show amidst a shower of confetti, she shouted into the mic ” “I’m going to have another baby!”


What!?! Really!!!

Then she told them she’ll  see them in a few years. Oh?

We are not sure if she is already pregnant or plans to begin the process of conceiving after she wrapped the North American leg of her international tour which launched this past July 2016. She has 8 more international dates in Australia, according to a concert website. 

Recall, in 2010, when she was preggers with her first child, now 4-year old son Angelo James, with partner Simon Konecki, she never revealed that she was expecting until she was well into her second trimester.

She stayed away from the spotlight for 4 years until returning to music in 2015. She has said that she would give up touring so she doesn’t miss a day of her son’s growing up and life. Rumors have it [pun intended] that she is considering a residency in Las Vegas which would permit her to tour but stay in one place.

Adele 6 months pregnant already, joins hidden celeb pregnancy club

Musical phenom Adele joined the likes of  Nicole Richie, Jennifer Lopez, Jessica Simpson and Beyonce who waited way past the typical 3-month safe period to announce that they were pregnant. All these ladies were between 4 and 6 months along before telling the world they were expecting.
Adele announced the pregnancy on her website on June 29 that she and boyfriend Simon Konecki are expecting their first child together. The two apparently have gotten engaged since, “rumor has it.” (ok. couldn’t help myself)
According to a source of Heat, she is already 6-months pregnant and is due in September although other sources say she is actually due in October. 
“Adele has barely left the house in recent months, so she could keep this to herself for as long as possible,” an insider close to the 24-year-old singer told heat.  “She stopped exercising a few months ago, and since then it’s been all about the baby.”
She could’ve been like Evangeline Lily who never told and was eventually busted by paparazzi at 8 months pregnant while living in Hawaii or Jennifer Hudson who too looked to be about 8 months pregnant when a wayward photographer caught her and her boyfriend out and about, trying to be inconspicuous.
And then we have currently pregnant stars like Megan Fox and Drew Barrymore who each has never really outwardly confirmed their pregnancy, although a People magazine cover photograph of Barrymore with her new husband Will Kopelmann‘s  hand on her tummy reveals the obvious and Fox in a bikini in Hawaii, clearly confirming the speculation. January Jones  also never officially announced she was pregnant either before giving birth to her son Xander.
There are several reasons celebrities wait until as long as possible to break the news: an interest in privacy and not wanting to be bothered with the “bump watch” craze;  having had a history of miscarriage or other loss and a fear of having another loss she’d have to share with the world or a belief that a pregnancy is just not the public’s business that needs to be announced to everyone anyway. 
Whatever the reasons, she pulled it off! Congrats to Adele. Bump watch is still on though mama! ha!
