The 'Someone Like You' singer has started plans for the follow up to '21' but wants to focus on her family life.

Adele has reportedly begun work on her new studio album, although fans are facing a lengthy delay in hearing any new material following the news of the singer's pregnancy.

The 'Rolling In The Deep' star apparently wants to focus on her upcoming baby's arrival and spend some time away from the media spotlight.

"Adele loves performing but she doesn't feel comfortable being such a high-profile celebrity," a source told the Daily Star. "It all got a bit much for her last year and she wants to take a bit of time out of the fame game to be a normal mum."

They added: "The last thing she wants is for her kid to become a celebrity baby or media commodity.

"Being a good mum is a lot more important to her than selling records and she's made it clear her priorities have changed now she's pregnant."

There are also no plans for a new tour in the near future according to the publication.

"She doesn't want to be traveling the world touring or promoting when she can be at home," continued the source.

Work has already started on her new studio album and the follow up to the global sensation '21' with the star working alongside 'Someone Like You' composer Dan Wilson.

He explained: "We've exchanged a couple of emails about the next album. I am concentrating on writing as many songs as I can for her. I am building some tracks."

The sourced added: "Although she's already started masterminding the third album, the chances of fans getting to hear it any time soon are slim to non-existent."

Adele announced the news that she was pregnant with her and boyfriend Simon Konecki's first child at the end of last month.

Reports recently suggested that she was planning a major renovation of her Sussex home and is also recording nursery rhymes to play to her baby bump.
