Adele keeps mum on pregnancy – and we love it

In the reports surfacing this week that Adele might be further along in her pregnancy than previously presumed is another example of how the British chanteuse has turned into the anti-celebrity.

In this day and age of paparazzi shots featuring massively pregnant stars teetering in heels, it’s refreshing to do a Google search for a pregnant Adele and come up with virtually nothing.

But the singer isn’t one to regularly soak in the limelight anyway.

When she first burst onto the scene in 2008 with her successful album “19,” she seemed like such a regular person, both humbled and stunned by her success. “I thought it would just be my friends and family buying it so I wasn’t expecting it to sell thousands of copies at all,” she told British magazine 247.

And unlike other celebs who have played the ingenue, we actually believed that Adele meant it. With her zaftig figure and goofy laugh, Adele just felt more like the rest of the world than she did a star.

Now with her pregnancy, Adele is keeping an even lower profile. The announcement was simple, with just three lines on her website:

“Im 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 and very excited but please respect our privacy at this precious time. Yours always, Adele xx.”

And while other stars have jumped at the chance to show off their pregnancy on the covers of magazines, Adele’s been MIA, and it’s not because the public isn’t eager to know more.

On Wednesday, her rep continued to shoo away the spotlight by declining to confirm rumors that the singer is due to give birth in September. Not that we mind – in fact, we find that pretty cool.
