Washington: Adele, who is believed to be due to give birth in September, has splurged 54,000 dollars on sound and lights for her baby’s nurseries and a further 7,500 dollars on clothes and accessories.

The 24-year-old singer and her boyfriend Simon Konecki are expecting their first child together and the couple are sparing no expense to ensure that the toddler is well looked after.

“Adele might have a reputation for being a bit of a spendthrift but when it comes to her baby she’s sparing no expense,” Contactmusic quoted a source as telling Reveal magazine.

“She is building state-of-the-art nurseries in all her homes. She’s having bespoke wallpaper made and it’s costing a fortune with climate control and cameras so she can see everything on her laptop.

“She’s spending 54,000 dollars on the lighting and sound system alone,” the source claimed.

Elaborating more on the preparations for the baby, the source revealed that the crooner has already ordered unisex baby clothes.

“She’s pre-ordered Bon Point unisex baby clothes - and they don’t come cheap. And she’s already bought three Bugaboo pushchairs and a 900 dollars Moses basket,” the insider said.

“Not to mention the small fortune she’s spent in Tiffany’s on picture frames and trinkets. She even bought an antique bear for 7,500 dollars,” the source added.
