Adele Just Opened Up About Having Another Baby with Boyfriend (or Is It Fiancé?) Rich Paul

Adele may be celebrating the success of her latest record-smashing album, but it sounds like she's got more on the mind than just music.

During a recent interview on The Graham Norton Show, the “Easy on Me” singer talked about the rescheduling of her Las Vegas residency dates, revealing a major piece of news along the way. “[The shows] are absolutely happening this year...I want a baby next year,” she said, with a little chuckle. “I have plans next year. I have plans! Imagine if I had to cancel shows because I was having a baby.”

Adele currently has one son, Angelo Adkins, 9, who she shares with her ex-husband, Simon Konecki. Angelo was one of the main subjects of the singer's latest album, 30, and prior to releasing the album, Adele told British Vogue that the album was like a letter to her son, explaining her divorce from Konecki.

Now, the singer expressed that she's had enough time to “recharge” after having a first child. “Like I said, I would like to maybe have more children,” Adele confessed, while jokingly adding, “I only just now feel like I've caught up on my sleep from nine years ago when I had my son, you know, so we'll see.”

Following her split from Konecki, the 33-year-old singer has been in a relationship with sports agent Rich Paul since 2021, and rumors started flying that the pair were engaged only a few days ago, when Adele was spotted at the BRIT Awards with an eye-catching diamond ring on that finger.

During her interview on Graham Norton, the singer also addressed these speculations when Norton asked if she actually was engaged. “As if I would ever tell anyone if I was or I wasn't?” Adele taunted.

However, she did give a closer look at the sparkly diamond and said, “It's lovely though, isn't it?” To which Norton responded, “It's very lovely. I have to say, as a casual observer, it looks like you are [engaged].” And Adele only teasingly replied, “Alright.”

We may not be getting a straight answer out of Adele any time soon, but in the meantime, we'll be admiring that gorgeous stone.
