Adele is one of the world’s best-selling music artists and a multi-Grammy award winner known for her hit single Hello. The superstar, an English singer-songwriter, was born on May 5, 1988, as Adele Laurie Blue Adkins. From a young girl who got engrossed in songs and voice to a world acclaimed pop singer, she has changed remarkably over the years both in her personal and professional life. Those changes are exactly what we’ll be looking at in this article.
Adele’s Husband or Boyfriend
Simon Konecki is the name of the man in Adele’s life. They began dating in the summer of 2011 and shortly after, in June 2012, she announced that they were expecting a baby.
The songbird who has been so successful in concealing her personal life couldn’t help it when she publicly confirmed her then-boyfriend as her husband during her acceptance speech for the Album of the Year at the Grammy Awards in 2017. This was after numerous speculations in early 2017 that she was married, having been spotted wearing a gold ring on her ring finger.

She reiterated her statement that she is married in March 2017 to the audience at a concert in Brisbane, Australia. It was expected that a star like her would have a superb, state of the art wedding ceremony but guess what? Her wedding was very much an intimate affair which took place in front of a small selection of family and close friends. The duo didn’t want a faff but definitely enjoyed their special day as they exchanged their vows at her £10 million mansion in Los Angeles.
He is the proud and doting husband of Adele who doesn’t care about what she does or what other people think of her but is only concerned with looking after her. If it requires showering his wife with love notes on stage to show how much he loves her and celebrate their anniversary, he’s out for that.
Born on April 17, 1974, in New York, Simon’s family relocated to London when he was 10. He is an Old Etonian and was a contemporary of Tom Parker-Bowles and Bear Grylls.
He was a director of EBS, a division of trading giant Icap, before managing teams of senior brokers at Lehman Brothers. His desire to not just see the world becoming a better place but being a part of the impact making process drove him to co-found Life Water, an eco-friendly brand of bottled water in the UK, with his friend Lucas White.
Following that, he became a charity entrepreneur and the CEO of a Brighton based charity called Drop4Drop which campaigns to provide clean water in poor countries.
He has been Married Before
He was married to stylist Clary Fisher from 2004 to 2008 and the duo share a daughter who was born in 2007. It was rumoured that Simon split from his wife because of Adele and divorced her while dating the songstress.
Adele, however, confirmed in a blog post on her website in 2012 that her beau has been divorced for four years. The two has been together for six years and still counting with no controversy in sight.
Their son, Angelo James Konecki was born on 19 October 2012. The star was so happy about her new role as a parent that she felt like she was truly living and has a purpose where she hadn’t before.
For Adele, it’s all about family. She prioritizes her relationships over her work and had said she would pull out of tour if her relationship with husband or son flounders even a bit. The mother of one left the crowd confused and speculating after her world tour in November 2016 where she told them she is off to have another baby.
Shortly after, in December, the singer revealed her fears about having a second baby. Her experience with bad postpartum depression after the birth of her son still knocks her off. She feels her son has a sibling already in her husband’s daughter from his first marriage. The Somebody Like You singer is not expecting to the best of our knowledge and news of her expectancy would be rife if it ever happens.
Her Weight Loss Story
Adele has sure made tremendous changes over the years since she first hit the music scene in 2008. She has received a lot of criticisms in the past for her weight. But guess what? She is fine with whatever size she is in and doesn’t care what others think of her body size. The music star, however, noted that she would only lose weight if it affected her health or sex life.
She was not pining to be on the cover of Playboy but Adele decided to do something about her weight, not because of people’s opinions. She spoke out about the changes she had to make especially in her diet and lifestyle.
Adele followed a simple diet plan which constitutes mainly of plant-based foods, seafood which she considers the key to overall health, weight loss and longer-life. She was honest about hating exercise and wouldn’t be turning into a fitness fanatic anytime soon but had to combine her healthy eating with a fitness plan to blitz her body. The fitness plan included circuit training, weightlifting and cable machines.
Being British, she had the habit of drinking 10 cups of tea a day with 2 sugars in each. You know what that means, 20 sugars daily. Her biggest change, however, was giving up the habit and she has noted that she had more energy than ever.
In addition to that, Adele gave up her cigarette addiction after she feared she might die of a smoking-related illness. Was it because of her health or did her weight affect her sex life? Whatever caused the decision to trim down, we think she boasts a much trendier and sexy look and we appreciate her for the effort.
Adele’s Net Worth
Adele has built her net worth solely through her music and sold out tours. She does not endorse any products as she believes it undermines her artistic integrity, thus, she has turned down millions in endorsements over the years.
Although there are varying amounts linked to her net worth which lies between the corridors of $135 and $185 million, she sure has made a huge success out of her career.
