Adele confirmed their romance last month, but now the singer has gone 'Instagram official' with her new boyfriend Rich Paul.

The pair, who posed in a photo booth together, looked deliriously happy as they smiled side by side in the snap.

The Someone Like You singer shared three photos on her Instagram account, showing off her stunning outfit for the night—a black strapless gown with silk taffeta off-shoulder sleeves.

Adele, who recently shared her weight loss secrets, after losing seven stone, has been seen out with Rich Paul lots of times over the last few months.

In August the couple finally confirmed their blossoming romance, as they headed to a basketball game together and were seen smiling at each other.

The singer and her sports agent boyfriend were attending a glamourous LA party last night. Rich also dressed up for the occasion, looking dapper in a white shirt and black velvet jacket. Rich is a sports agent, who looks after basketball stars such as LeBron James, Anthony Davis, Ben Simmons, and John Wall.

As the singer shared the three photos on Instagram, which sees her wearing the gorgeous custom-made Schiaparelli dress and drop-down pearl earrings, they quickly amassed over one million likes. Fans of the star left love hearts and called her a 'Queen', while others were asking where her new album was.

Fans were convinced, back in January, that an Instagram post from the star meant she would be releasing a new album soon. The artist shared a picture of her second album, 21, and wrote, “Well I never! Happy 10 years old friend! It’s crazy how little I remember of what it was like and how I felt a decade ago.”

She went on to thank her fans for their continued support, “Thank You from the bottom of my heart for letting us into your lives and letting me be a soundtrack to some of it.”

Fans believed that the rare use of social media from the star signaled that she plans to release her album soon. But there's no sign of the album as of yet.

However, we could see a new song from her soon - with another Pop icon, Taylor Swift. In July it was revealed, by the Society of European Stage Authors and Composers (SESAC), that the two songstresses are both registered for a track titled Broken Hearts, which is also listed as Shattered Hearts. Let's keep our fingers crossed for that one.
