When one is married to a celebrity, people watching can be forgiven for thinking that he or she is feeding off the celebrity’s status. They would probably think that the non-celebrity feels fortunate to be married to a famous figure. While Simon Konecki makes the list of ordinary citizens married to famous people, there is certainly no hint of self-esteem issues or lack of confidence in his appearance. Besides, judging from his career path, he is a celebrity in his own rights.
His superstar-singer wife, Adele is head over heels with him and frequently talks about how he is her biggest encouragement. She is also grateful that he is not threatened by her immense success.
Biography and Career of Simon Konecki
Konecki who is British was born in New York City on April 17, 1974, to his parents, Rosemary and Andrew Konecki.
