As Adele finished the last stop on her incredible 107-concert world tour, she had a huge announcement for the crowd: she plans on having another baby soon! The British singer/songwriter already has one child, 4-year-old Angelo, with her husband Simon Konecki. She thanked her family for their support of her tour, and posted a Instagram of an adorable banner the two had made for her.
The banner read "Mummy, you did it!!!" She loved it, writing "I just finished my 107 shows in 10 months. 100% live every night. I bloody smashed it, even if I do say so myself. You lot have been incredible, every night you've been so beautiful, loving and engaged. My band and my crew you made the whole thing turn. And my beautiful family made it easy to do. Big love x."
Adele was excited at the prospect of a baby girl, despite her admission that motherhood can sometimes be challenging.
Last month, she divulged that after her son's birth, she suffered from postnatal depression, "I love my son more than anything, but on a daily basis, if I have a minute or two, I wish I could do whatever the fuck I wanted, whenever I want. Every single day I feel like that."
She said the pregnancy was isolating, especially with her non-parent friends: "My friends who didn't have kids would get annoyed with me, whereas I knew I could just sit there and chat absolute mush with my friends who had children, and we wouldn't judge each other." At the time, when she was asked if she wanted more children, she said "I’m too scared. I had really bad postpartum depression after I had my son, and it frightened me." She's changed her mind since then, though, announcing to the huge crowd who turned out for her final show, "Hopefully I'll have another baby! I've decided I want a little girl now... who am I going to give this dress to that I've worn for 107 shows?!" Get inspired by her glamour and shop glittery gowns below.
In the same Vanity Fair interview, Adele disappointed fans by saying she may not ever want to tour again. "I’d still like to make records, but I’d be fine if I never heard [the applause] again. I’m on tour simply to see everyone who’s been so supportive. I don’t care about money." Fans turned out in droves for her tour, Adele Live 2016, in countries across the world. The show culminated in a final show in Phoenix, Arizona, where Adele made her surprise family announcement.
Although Adele's melancholy songs can give the impression that she's still heartbroken over her former loves, she said she's anything but. "There’s a reason I loved them once,” she admitted to Vanity Fair, “and for a while hate got in the way. But I’m an adult now, I’m a mother, and I’m a lot less bitchy. They were interesting people, and while we’re not friends and I don’t see them regularly, I have seen them and it’s all fine."
At least for the moment, Adele is happy, both with her wildly successful career and with her loving family. So the next time you listen to "Someone Like You," just remember that although she suffered heartbreaks, Adele proves that you can find peace and happiness in the end.
