Superstar singer Adele and her boyfriend, Rich Paul, seem to be singing from the same hymn sheet as the pair have shared similar comments on the possibility of welcoming a child together.

Adele's boyfriend has echoed statements made by the singer about their desire to grow their families. In past interviews, the Easy On Me chart-topper confirmed her plans to have a baby with the sports agent within the next year once her workload calmed down.

Adele, who has a nine-year-old son Angelo from her former marriage to Simon Konecki, has been dating Rich since early 2021.

She recently uploaded an adorable collection of Instagram snaps of the loved-up pair, offering fans a rare sneak peek into her private life.

It was earlier this year, while appearing on The Graham Norton Show, that Adele really opened up on her hopes and dreams for the couple though. When discussing the need to reschedule her much-anticipated Las Vegas residency dates, the topic of planning for a baby came up.

She confirmed the show “is absolutely 100% happening this year. It has to happen this year because I've got plans for next year. Imagine if I have to cancel because I am having a baby!”

So, Adele hasn’t been shy about her desire to adding to her brood, and now it’s Rich’s turn to open up about their plans for more children.

Rich became a father at a young age and is understood to have three children, although he has been notoriously private in sharing details of his family life until now.  

However, he’s opened up on the possibility of welcoming another child into the blended family, suggesting he would do things a little differently with all the parenting experience he has picked up over the years.

He told E! News, “As a young dad, growing a business, it was pretty tough. But now looking as an older dad and my kids being much older, and obviously, if I was to have more kids … I’m looking forward to being a different dad, a more patient dad.”

“Oftentimes as you’re building a business, you’re on the go, you’re moving around, the kids grow up fast in a blink of an eye. Next thing, you know, they’re walking and they’re riding the bike, running and flipping around and that’s the problem.”

He went on to add, “You know, I have a daughter that’s a junior in college so I was a very young dad, but now, different age, different time in my life, different position in my life. I’m really looking forward to being an older dad.”
