Adele talks babies and refuses to confirms engagement

The Grammy-winner sparked rumours the 40-year-old sporting agent had popped the question when she showed off a dazzling teardrop-shaped sparkler on her ring finger at the BRIT Awards earlier this week.

However, the 'Easy On Me' singer - who has nine-year-old Angelo with ex-husband Simon Konecki - is keeping people guessing over her alleged engagement.

She told 'The Graham Norton Show': "If I was would I ever tell anyone if I was or wasn’t?”

The 33-year-old singer has been dating Rich since September 2021.

The 'Chasing Pavements' hitmaker recently hit the headlines after she cancelled her planned Las Vegas residency the day before opening night, with an insider claiming that it was down to a rift with her boyfriend.

The source told New York Daily News: "There's trouble in paradise. That's why she can't perform."

However, Adele later told fans in an Instagram statement announcing her BRIT Awards appearance that Rich – who was not present at the ceremony - “sends his love".

During her chat with Graham, Adele also promised fans the delayed 'Weekends with Adele' residency will take place before the end of 2022, and admitted it needs to happen this year because she has "plans" for next year.

The 'Hello' hitmaker then suggested: "Imagine if I have to cancel because I am having a baby!"

She said: “We are now working our a**** off, but I don’t want to announce a new set of dates until I know everything will definitely be ready.

"The sooner I can announce the better, but I just can’t in case we are not ready in time. It is absolutely 100% happening this year.

"It has to happen this year because I’ve got plans for next year."

The 'Chasing Pavements' is keen to add to her brood but admitted motherhood has been exhausting.

She said: "It takes me a while to recharge, and I would like to have more children – I only just feel like I’ve caught up with my sleep from nine years ago when I had my son.”
