The 28-year-old singer was performing in Nashville, Tennessee when her 42-year-old partner - with whom she has three-year-old son Angelo - made the incredibly romantic gesture.

The businessman penned heartfelt messages on pieces of pink confetti that rained down on her and the audience during her final performance.

The confetti is a regular feature at the 'Hello' hitmaker's shows, however it is usually white and features a song lyric on each piece.

During 'Rolling in the Deep', Adele exclaimed: "We've got pink confetti tonight!"

The pieces of coloured paper included messages such as "I love you", "You are an angel" and "Happy anniversary".

The news comes after the 'Someone Like You' singer recently revealed her womb is "starting to ache" because her son is turning four and she wants another baby.

She told fans on Saturday (15.10.16): "My son is about to turn four very, very soon.

"I'm starting to get very emotional about it because I feel like once they turn four, they're not really your actual baby anymore.

"So my womb is starting to ache a little bit. It's like, 'Baby, baby, baby. Need a baby, need a baby'. I'm not pregnant. I won't get pregnant until the end of the tour."

And the loved up couple will certainly have the time on their hands too, as it was previously announced the singer would be taking a break from touring in order to spend more time with her family.

A source said: "Angelo is the number one priority for Adele. He is the most important thing in her life. She has brought him everywhere with her on tour but as he is starting school next year, he won't be able to join her any more.

"Adele doesn't want to miss a moment of Angelo growing up and it's an easy decision for her to give up touring for him. Right now she is saying she won't do another massive world tour like the current one for another 10 years."
