The getting-very-pregnant Adele has reconnected with an old buddy who is also expecting. Adele and Lily Allen -- who recently changed her name and is now known professionally as Lily Rose Cooper -- have been friends over the years, but the two have recently become much closer as they spend time together while awaiting their respective big days.

"Adele and Lily lost contact due to their busy schedules but, lately, they've grown closer again, saying they're pregnancy buddies," a source tells Closer magazine. "Lily's been giving Adele loads of advice." Lily and her husband Sam Cooper are currently expecting their second child together, while Adele is pregnant for the first time with her partner -- and not her husband, despite all the rumors -- Simon Konecki.

Lily famously retired from the music business when she became pregnant for the first time but announced her return this summer and hit the studio with producer Greg Kurstin. The fruits of that pairing were at least partially revealed when Allen announced that she had recorded a duet with Pink titled 'True Love.'

Adele is also staying busy, despite the baby bump. Rumor has it that she recently was spotted at Abbey Road studios working on the theme song to the next James Bond movie, 'Skyfall.' That flick hits U.S. theaters  next month -- and by then, Adele may have given birth. Any name ideas?
