Adele's boyfriend of nearly a year, Simon Konecki, is planning to propose to the singer, following an announcement last week that the couple are expecting their first child together, Us Weekly reports.

"He was planning to propose anyway!" a source revealed to the magazine about Konecki, the 36-year-old co-founder of the U.K.-based bottled water company Life Water. Konecki divorced his first wife four years ago.

As for the ceremony, the insider also said that Adele, who was raised by a single mom, "wants a low-key affair where her mother gives her away." What the singer wants most of all, according to the source, is "to be a wife and mom."

Adele announced her pregnancy on her website last Friday with a note that read, "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 and very excited but please respect our privacy at this precious time. Yours always, Adele xx."

Following a breakout 2011 with her album 21 selling 9.3 million copies to date, Adele has been on a break since October as she recovers from surgery needed to repair her vocal cords, which were damaged after repeated hemorrhaging.
