Your body does seriously strange things during pregnancy. Just ask Adele.

As anyone who’s incubated a human life in their uterus can attest, being pregnant is no walk in the park.

Your breasts ache. You crave strange (often disgusting) foods. It’s pretty much impossible to sleep, and your hormones go completely out of control.

But it turns out it’s not just us mortals who suffer from pregnancy-related discomfort.

At a performance in Glasgow on Friday, singer Adele revealed she grew facial hair while pregnant with her son.

“When I got pregnant I had so much testosterone in me that I grew a beard,” she joked to the crowd.

“I only cropped it last night. It’s actually true. I’m not telling a joke. I actually have a beard, but I’m proud of it. I call it Larry.”

Far from turning her partner, Simon Konecki, off, Adele says her fuzz has brought them closer together.

“My man’s got a good beard. He trims it sometimes in the summer. I do have a beard myself so I can understand when it gets hot in the summer.”

Sounds like Adele’s son, Angelo James Konecki who is now three years old, is a lucky guy: he’s growing up with excellent parents, and he’s got two impressive sets of facial hair to aspire to.
