When Adele wraps up her world tour in November, Los Angeles is going to gain a huge superstar.

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.

Earlier this year, the star purchased a $9.5 million Beverly Hills home (she counts Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis as neighbors!) and has been spotted running errands around town.

“Very few people recognize her and she gets very little attention,” says a source. “She seems to love that.”

For much more on Adele’s life in L.A. with her family, pick up the latest issue of PEOPLE, on newsstands Friday.

And though she’s been traveling throughout Europe and America for her tour, Adele has still kept her 3-year-old son, Angelo (with partner Simon Konecki, 42), as her priority.

“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.”
