Adele on Boyfriend Simon Konecki: It's 'Only Because of Him and Our Kid That I'm All Right'

Posted on


How does Adele imagine the end of her relationship with longtime boyfriend Simon Konecki?

Like the best love stories, it’ll be “hopefully forever after,” she told 60 Minutes Australia with a smile and a laugh, during a Sunday sit-down.

The record-smashing singer, noted for the privacy she keeps around her home life, opened up about her relationship with Konecki. The two have been together since 2011 and share a son, Angelo.

That kind of stability can’t help but echo in her music, Adele said, adding that Konecki is “in” a couple of her songs.

(Though she said with a laugh that didn’t mean he was singing on any of them.)

“Being in such an amazing relationship with someone that’s so there for me and so loyal and is really part of my core now, that’s what made me write about everything I’ve ever done, because I’ve got his love,” she said.

“I know that sounds a bit like I’m trying to write a Hollywood movie,” she continued, “but it’s only because of him and because of our kid and stuff that I’m all right,”

So, 60 Minutes‘ Liz Hayes asked her, is their story the “ultimate love story”?

Adele smiled. “I guess it is,” she said. “I guess it is.”

Further proof: Konecki, who “doesn’t care” about Adele’s kind of music generally, loved her latest album, 25.

“That was the real test,” she said.

“He cares about me more than anything,” she said, “but he doesn’t care about the style of music that I make and stuff like that and he just loved it.”
