We all know that Adele avoids making public appearances, but she appeared on Tuesday showing off her burgeoning baby bump when she stepped out in London.

Wearing a long, gray dress and blue sweater, Adele seemed in good spirits as she and boyfriend, Simon Konecki, were pictured leaving a London hospital and making their way into a waiting car without a wedding band.

According to a witness, Konecki appeared "very happy and caring" as he helped the Grammy-winning star get to the vehicle safely.

Adele, who announced her pregnancy in June, was recently made the subject of a Life & Style story that alleged she and her former investment banker boyfriend married in a secret ceremony.

Rumors of the alleged nuptials began after Adele, 24,was spotted wearing a gold band on her wedding finger during a stroll around London on July 30.

"She’s wanted to settle down and start a family for ages," a source told the magazine at the time. "Adele doesn’t see any point in wasting time."

Following the report, Adele quickly took to Twitter to clear the air, writing: "I'm not married . . . Zzzzzzz."

It has to be noted that Adele was not seen wearing any rings while out on Tuesday.

What is true, however, is that Adele is excited to welcome her first child.

"I really want to be a mum," she told People in February, claiming she aimed to have three sons by the age of 30. "I better start getting on with it!"

Congratulations Adele!
