NEW PIC: Pregnant Adele Steps Out as She Awaits Baby’s Birth

Pregnant singer Adele with her partner Simon Konecki and their dog in West Sussex, England on September 27, 2012.

Adele's bundle of joy is nearly here!

Due to give birth to her first child later this fall, the British singer, 24, made a rare outing in Hove, West Sussex in her native England on Thursday Sept. 27.

Covering up her bump in a loose black sweater, the "Someone Like You" crooner wore black pants, a dark fur cap and Converse sneakers, and joined boyfriend Simon Konecki (carrying their pooch, Louie) for the excursion. The couple (who recently slammed false reports that they'd secretly wed) grabbed lunch and checked out their newly renovated beach house.

"She is lying low and focusing on becoming a mom," a confidante recently told Us Weekly. "The baby is healthy and she's so excited!"

During her downtime, Adele is also penning songs for her next album, which will undoubtedly be lighter and happier than her breakup-inspired 21.
