Adele performs on stage as American Express present BST Hyde Park in Hyde Park on July 02, 2022 in London, England.

Adele is opening up about falling in love with Rich Paul, after keeping their relationship pretty lowkey since being first spotted together last July.

In a new interview with Elle, the UK singer said, “I’ve never been in love like this. I’m obsessed with him.”


When asked by the publication if she would ever want to remarry after divorcing ex Simon Konecki in 2019, she replied, “Yes, absolutely.”

“I definitely want more kids,” Adele continued. She shares 9-year-old son Angelo with Konecki. “I’m a homemaker and I’m a matriarch, and a stable life helps me with my music. But right now, all I got in my brain is [my upcoming Las Vegas residency]. I wanna f—ing nail it.”


This February, the “Easy On Me” singer sparked engagement rumors with Paul when she was spotted wearing a diamond ring on her ring finger while attending the BRIT Awards. That same month on The Graham Norton Show, she played coy about engagement rumors when the host pointed out the massive diamond she was wearing. “As if I would ever tell anyone if I was or wasn’t,” Adele said. “It’s lovely though, isn’t it?”

In her Elle interview, Adele addressed the engagement rumors again, saying with a laugh, “Well! Well. Well, I’m not married.” When pressed further about her relationship status, she said, “I’m not married. I’m not married! I’m just in loooove! I’m happy as I’ll ever be. I might as well be married.”

In a follow-up conversation post-interview, the 15-time Grammy Award winner clarified, “I’m not engaged. I just love high-end jewelry, boy!”
