Speaking to ELLE UK the mother-of-one gushed about boyfriend Rich Paul, "I've never been in love like this. I’m obsessed with him. I definitely want more kids."

However, she denied rumours that she was engaged, "Well! Well. Well, I'm not married," she said, when asked why she was wearing a diamond ring recently. She later explained, "I just love high-end jewellery, boy!"

Adele, who was devasted about her divorce from Simon Konecki, hasn't spoken publicly about her new love, since her last marriage, but it's thought she was friends with Rich, an American sports agent, before they got together. 

The multiple Grammy award-winning singer married Simon Konecki in 2018, and they had one child, Angelo, 9, together - and although she has moved on from her marriage to him, Adele admitted, last year, to feeling "f*****g devastated" by her divorce after realizing that she "no longer knew who she was."

The Hello singer originally canceled shows for her Las Vegas residency just 24 hours before the first concert which shocked fans and led the singer to make an announcement via Instagram, where she was visibly upset, that the tour would be postponed. 

At the time, Adele explained that Weekends with Adele, which was supposed to kick off in January at Caesers Palace's iconic Colosseum in Las Vegas, had officially been postponed due to Covid-related delays. 

Talking about cancelling the show she told Elle magazine, "It was the worst moment in my career, by far. I was so excited about those shows. It was devastating."

Adele's Vegas residency will now run from November 18, 2022 to March 25, 2023, and fans who have tickets for the original show dates will be able to reschedule their tickets.
