British Grammy-winning singer Adele is reportedly due to give birth in September.
The 24-year-old chart-topper announced that she and boyfriend Simon Konecki are expecting their first child together last month.
"I'm delighted to announce that Simon and I are expecting our first child together," she wrote on her official blog at the time.
"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."
The singer did not give any indication of how far along in her pregnancy she was.
But if a new report is to believed, the Rolling in the Deep singer could be a lot more pregnant than we thought.
According to heatworld.com, Adele could be giving birth in as little as two months.
In a "world exclusive," the website claims the singer is said to have kept her pregnancy secret long before making an announcement on June 29 - by keeping a low profile and wearing baggy clothes.
"Adele has barely left the house in recent months, so she could keep this to herself for as long as possible," dished a source.
The insider added: "She stopped exercising a few months ago, and since then it's been all about the baby."
As supporting 'evidence', the report adds that the fact she didn't fly to America for the Billboard awards in May, even though she won 12 trophies, is an indication of how far gone she is.
The site also reports that when she attended the Ivor Novello awards a week later, she wore a loose-fitting dress that could have easily concealed a burgeoning baby bump.
Since announcing the news, the singer has received congratulatory messages from a flurry of celebrities.
Pop singer Lily Allen, who gave birth to her first baby Ethel last year, said on Twitter: "Wow. Adele's preggers! Congratumalations to her and Simon! [sic]"
US chat show host Ellen DeGeneres said: "Adele is pregnant! I'm so happy, I'm rolling in the deep! At least I think I am. I'm still not 100% sure what it means."
Lady Gaga also congratulated the singer.
"Anyone hear the sigh of relief emitted by popstars worldwide when Adele announced her pregnancy? #ThatsTheTruthTea Congratulations gorgeous!" Gaga tweeted.
The pregnancy announcement followed an earlier report that Adele wanted to be pregnant by the end of the year.
"[Adele] told Simon how broody she's been feeling. The pair have spoken about children and it's something they both very much want in the future. Simon already has a five-year-old daughter from his previous marriage with Clary, who Adele has met and absolutely adores," a source told British tabloid Daily Star in March.
Adele and Konecki, a 36-year-old charity entrepreneur, have been dating since last year.
A rep for the singer declined to comment on the latest report, according to the NY Daily News.
Congratulations to the soon-to-be parents!
