It’s official — like, officially official:
Adele is a married woman!
She’s always been a very private person, or at least as private as one can be while singing songs filled with intimate details of love and heartbreak.
Remember, we didn’t even know the name of the British chanteuse’s son until she wore a necklace with the kid’s name on it.
But over the weekend, Adele did a concert in Australia.
And she gave quite the rare glimpse into her life.
Specifically, we’re talking about that bit where she revealed that she’s married to her boyfriend of several years, Simon Konecki.
At one point in the show, the 28-year-old Adele began talking to her captive audience about her smash hit “Someone Like You”.
The song, of course, is about an old love moving on with someone else and all the pain and heartache that comes along with that scenario.
“I could see in their eyes as they were listening to it on their headphones that it reminded them of something or someone,” she said.
“I was trying to remember how it was I felt at the beginning of the relationship that inspired that record.”
“Because as bad as a breakup can be,” she added, “as bitter and horrible and messy as it can be …”
Let’s pause real quick and take a moment of silence for how much Adele knows about how “bitter and horrible and messy” breakups can be.
(If you need to listen to 21 in its entirety, we understand.)
Anyway, the moment of truth was just ahead …
“That feeling when you first fall for someone is the best feeling on earth,” she continued, “and I am addicted to that feeling.”
She added, “Obviously I can’t go through with those feelings because I’m married now. I’ve found my next person.”
So sneaky for a marriage announcement, right?!
But thankfully, she was direct about it.
“I’m married now” can’t really be interpreted in too many ways, right? There’s not a lot of debating the meaning of those words or context.
She raised some serious suspicions that she’d secretly married Konecki last month at the Grammy Awards. This appears to confirm it!
During an acceptance speech at the Grammys (where she somehow bested Beyonce!) she referred to him as “my husband”.
In an interview after the show, however, she spoke of him again and simply called him her “partner,” which was a bit confusing.
And not in a fun way.
Adele broke our hearts into millions of pieces all those years ago when she released her 21 album, so if she’d gotten married and gotten such a beautiful happy ending, we’d really want to know, you know?
But now, we know. And it’s a wonderful feeling.
Congrats, Adele, you magical human being, you!
