British singer Adele has finally confirmed that she is married ending speculations about her marital status.
The confirmation about her being married came at a concert in Brisbane, Australia on Sunday as she introduced Someone Like You, her breakthrough 2011 hit written about the lingering pain of a breakup with a previous boyfriend.
“That feeling when you first fall for someone is the best feeling on earth,” she said, according to a fan’s video posted online. “And I am addicted to that feeling. Obviously, I can’t go through with those feelings because I’m married now,” she added, to a smattering of cheers. “I’ve found my next person.”
The British singer has been in a long-term relationship with Simon Konecki, a former financier who founded drop4drop, a charity that presses for global access to clean drinking water. The couple have a four-year-old son, Angelo, but Adele has been coy about whether they are married as she tries to maintain her privacy.
It seems that Adele also confirmed that she was married last month at the Grammy Awards as she was heard thanking her husband and son for her achievements. At the time though her representative declined to say whether she had been confirming her marriage to Konecki.
Adele has etched her name as one of the most successful artists of the 21st century with her ballads of nostalgia and heartache. At the Grammys in February, she became the first artist to win all three most-coveted awards – for album, record and song – in two different years.
