According to multiple sources close to the singer, the British singer, 28, is planting roots in L.A. and plans to spend more time in California.
“She prefers a quiet life away from the spotlight, but she was ready for some sunshine and has made close friends in L.A.,” says a friend.
“Very few people recognize her and she gets very little attention,” says a source. “She seems to love that.”

“She really tries to create a normal life for her son. When Adele is off, they spend time at home and have people over.” Adds another insider: “She doesn’t like using a nanny very much although she does have one who travels with her. But for the most part, Angelo is always with her. She’s really hands-on.”
According to the insider, Konecki “has been with them as much as possible,” and the family spends “quality time” together during the day before her shows.
Adds the pal: “The reason her relationship works with Simon is because they are on the same page. Their priority is their son, and Adele loves being a mother. Angelo is a very happy little boy.”
