The 'Kickstarts' rapper admits he was "dying to tell someone" after hearing the news earlier this year.

Example has confessed that his close friend Adele told him she was pregnant a long time before she officially announced the news to the world.

The 'Someone Like You' star made a personal post on her official blog confirming that she was expecting her and boyfriend Simon Konecki's first child.

Speaking to the Daily Star, the rapper admitted he was worried he would reveal the secret and was "dying" to tell the news to someone.

"I'm usually a blabbermouth but I kept that one to myself though I was dying to tell someone," he confessed. "I think Adele should have kept it quiet up to the birth."

Adele's partner Simon recently admitted that their baby was due "so soon" and the BRIT and Grammy award winning star was doing well ahead of the birth.

Example also revealed that he has been thinking of starting a family of his own recently.

"In the next few years I want a family," he admitted. "I won't be practicing changing nappies on Adele's baby but when I saw some old uni mates recently with their kids it made me think about it."

The 'Changed The Way You Kiss Me' star is currently finishing work on his new studio album which will be released on 18th November.

His new single 'Say Nothing' will also be available to download on 16th September.
