The 'Rolling In The Deep' singer reaches a new milestone with her Grammy Award winning album.

Adele has now sold over ten million copies of her Grammy and BRIT Award winning album '21', it has been announced.

The 'Someone Like You' star has broken records throughout 2012 with the record, and the new milestone comes during its 92nd week on the Billboard 200.

The last album to sell similar figures in a shorter space of time was Justin Timberlake's former group N*Sync, with 'No Strings Attached' shifting the ten million mark in just 43 weeks back in 2001.

Adele's second record has now become just the eight to reach the figure within the two-year mark, with such stars as The Backstreet Boys, Santana and Alanis Morissette.

Earlier this year, '21' also equaled records set by Prince and the soundtrack to Saturday Night Live after it spent 24 weeks at the top of the Billboard chart.

Only five other albums have spent more time at number one in the chart's history. 

Meanwhile, Adele is also currently rumoured to have given birth to her first child with boyfriend Simon Konecki.

It has also been reported this week that James Bond star Daniel Craig handed the singer an array of gifts for her baby to say thank you for producing the soundtrack to Skyfall.
