Adele may be looking to expand her family with her boyfriend Rich Paul.
In a recent appearance on BBC Sounds’ “Desert Island Discs” podcast, which was posted on July 3, the “Rolling in the Deep” singer revealed that she “definitely” wants more kids. Adele shares her nine-year-old son Angelo Adkins with her ex-husband, Simon Konecki.
“I definitely would like a couple more kids,” the “Easy On Me” singer said, per Us Weekly. “It would be wonderful. If not, I’ve got Angelo.” The pair were officially divorced in March 2021 (Adele wrote a whole album about it) and the singer has gone on to date sports agent Rich Paul. Last we heard, there were reports that the pair have moved in together.
“It was never really tricky because we’re such good friends and over my dead body is my kid having a messy divorce in his life,” she said of her split from Konecki. “There are no issues and there were no issues, so I guess it was easier to make sure that didn’t happen, but I was blessed with them, and him, [Simon] he’s just the best, you know. And I definitely approached it all with grace and that really paid off.”
This isn’t the first time Adele has sung Konecki’s praises. “I think Simon probably saved my life, to be honest with you,” Adele told Oprah Winfrey in November 2021, per Page Six. “He came at such a moment, where the stability that him and Angelo have given me, no one else would ever have been able to give me. Especially at that time, I was so young and I just, I think I would have got a bit lost in all of it.”
She continued, “I could have easily gone down some dodgy paths, you know? And sort of self-destructed from being overwhelmed by all of it. He came in and was stable. The most stable person I’ve ever had in my life up until that point. Even now, I trust him with my life.”
