Adele’s boyfriend of nearly a year, Simon Konecki, is planning to propose to the singer, following an announcement last week that the couple are expecting their first child together, Us Weekly reports.

“He was planning to propose anyway!” a source revealed to the magazine about Konecki, the 36-year-old co-founder of the U.K.-based bottled water company Life Water. Konecki divorced his first wife four years ago.

As for the ceremony, the insider also said that Adele, who was raised by a single mom, “wants a low-key affair where her mother gives her away.” What the singer wants most of all, according to the source, is “to be a wife and mom.”

Adele announced her pregnancy on her website last Friday with a note that read, “I’m delighted to announce that Simon and I are expecting our first child together. I wanted you to hear the news direct from me, obviously we’re over the moon and very excited but please respect our privacy at this precious time. Yours always, Adele xx.”

Following a breakout 2011 with her album 21 selling 9.3 million copies to date, Adele has been on a break since October as she recovers from surgery needed to repair her vocal cords, which were damaged after repeated hemorrhaging.

Every year has one: a runaway Grammy nominee who sweeps through the top categories and appears to be the juggernaut to beat. This year is no different. While Kanye West is the top nominee with seven nods, Adele is close behind with six nods, including bids in all of the top categories.

And while we won’t know whose name will be called until Sunday night’s show, a look at the Record of the Year race is a fine example of why the British songbird might need some help packing her hardware up for the trip back home.

Unless you spent time on another planet this year, and even if you did, chances are you heard Adele’s breakthrough hit, “Rolling in the Deep” a dozen or (many) more times. The stirring soul pop gem was the perfect showcase for the singer’s powerful, richly textured voice, and its ebb-and-flow dynamic packed a relationship’s worth of drama into 3:48. In addition to selling nearly 6 million copies of her album, 21, she also moved nearly 6 million copies of the “Deep” single, earning credit for helping to (slightly) pull the long-moribund U.S. record business out of a decade-long slump.

But she has some formidable opponents in the Record of the Year race, one of the most prestigious awards handed out, which frequently honors the year’s most successful or notable songs. That might explain how Best New Artist nominee Bon Iver got into the mix with the ethereal “Holocene.” Leader Justin Vernon broke through to the mainstream in 2011 thanks to his own folk-and-AutoTuned compositions, as well as work with West.

If “Rolling in the Deep” was inescapable, then Mumford & Sons‘ “The Cave” was just a few notches below ubiquitous, but still all over the place. The banjo-picking, foot-stomping ditty from the English folk revivalists helped cement their status as a force to be reckoned with, while serving as a nice follow-up to their salty breakthrough, “Little Lion Man.” It also helped keep their multi-platinum debut, Sigh No More, a fixture on the Billboard 200 and iTunes charts throughout the year.

Somewhere in between were two huge hits for Katy Perry and Bruno Mars that put a stranglehold on pop radio for much of the spring and summer.Perry’s inspiring “Firework” helped the singer reach elite company on theBillboard charts on her way to landing six top-five hits from a single album, not to mention empowering her young fans to embrace their unique identities.

Any way you slice it, it was also a huge year for Mars, who also garnered six Grammy noms for his Doo-Wops & Hooligans debut as well as his producing/songwriting work on songs by other artists. But it was the sweat and toil he put into the endless love tune “Grenade” that made all that hard work pay off.

“[We] worked extremely hard on ‘Grenade.’ That was the hardest song on the whole album to finish because we knew we had something, and to get all that emotion out,” Mars told MTV News in December. “I think I can speak for all of us when I say that we’re really happy that that song is being recognized because that’s like our trophy song.”

Even though Kanye West walked off with the most Grammy nominations Wednesday night, the chatter backstage was all about Adele.

West’s seven nominations was one more than that of the 23-year-old British songstress. And she was the clear favorite among many of the artists to take home the most trophies at next February’s awards show.

“I feel sorry for anybody whose got to go up against Adele this year,” said country artist Jason Aldean, who said he was thankful Adele was not competing in the three categories he is nominated for.

Bruno Mars’s “Doo Wops & Holligans” is pitted against Adele’s “21” for album of the year and record of the year.

Mars gathered six nominations Wednesday, adding to the seven he got last year.

“Adele’s awesome, but I heard she beats up little puppies,” Mars joked backstage after the live Grammys nominations telecast Wednesday night.

Kimberly Perry, lead vocalist for best new artist nominee The Band Perry, said Adele’s “21” album is the most-often played music on the group’s tour bus.

It’s uncertain if Adele will have recovered enough from this month’s throat surgery to sing at the February 12 show, Recording Academy President Neil Portnow said. The procedure to repair a “recurrent vocal cord hemorrhage” forced cancellation of the remainder of her 2011 shows.

Wednesday night’s one-hour Grammy nominations telecast began and ended with Lady Gaga performances, including a finale with country duo Sugarland.

Gaga, nominated in three categories, is up against Adele for the highest honor — album of the year — with “Born This Way.”

In addition to Adele, Mars and Gaga, the album of the year nominees include Foo Fighters’ “Wasting Light” and Rihanna’s “Loud.”

Other artists with impressive collections of nominations include Lil Wayne and Skrillex with five each.

So far, Adele’s “21” is the best-selling album of the year, with a little  over 2.5 million copies sold. Rick  Rubin, who produced several tracks on the album, says while he had no idea  the album would connect with so many people, he understands why it has.

“She doesn’t carry any of the baggage of many of today’s pop stars, and it  truly is about the music first, and her voice and her lyrics, and baring her  soul with what she’s saying. I would say what she makes is her art, and at no  time does it feel like product,” he said in a phone interview recently. “So much  of pop music feels like product.”

The British singer won Grammys for her debut album “19,” but has catapulted  to superstar status with the success of “21” and hits like the No. 1 “Rolling in  the Deep.” Figures released by Nielsen  SoundScan earlier this week showed it was the year’s most popular album at  the mid-way point.

Rubin, a Grammy-winning producer who’s worked with artists ranging from Jay-Z  to Johnny  Cash to Neil  Diamond, says the raw emotions in songs on the album, inspired mostly by the  23-year-old’s breakup with a boyfriend, are what people are  responding to.

“She really bared her soul lyrically, and I think that’s what resonating with  people — the truth in her lyrics, and the passion in which she tells that  truth,” he said
