As Adele farewelled the final, 107th show of her 2016 tour, she thanked her crew, band and audience and said she was “off to have a baby.”
“I’m not pregnant. I won’t get pregnant until the end of the tour,” she clarified to fans at the Talking Stick Resort Arena gig in Phoenix, E-online reports.
The singer had previously said she was happy being the mum of one and step-mum to her husband Simon Konecki’s daughter, but as almost 4-year-old Angelo approaches school age, she admits she’s having second thoughts.
“My son is about to turn 4 very, very soon. I’m starting to get very emotional about it because I feel like once they turn 4, 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,'” she told her Nashville’s Bridgestone Arena audience a few weeks ago.
Of husband, non-profit Drop4Drop co-founder Simon Konecki, Adele says “It’s the most serious relationship I’ve ever been in; we’ve got a child together. He’s confident. He’s perfect.”

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 for me to do. Big love x
Once bitten …
Adele, who will tour Australia in March 2017, had initially been reluctant to entertain the idea of another baby. She’s recently talked about her experience of postnatal depression when she had Angelo and had told Vanity Fair she was worried about getting pregnant again.
“(Simon’s daughter is) my get-out-of-jail-free card,” Adele said when asked if she’d like another baby. “I’m too scared. I had really bad postpartum depression after I had my son, and it frightened me.”
It seems that the womb-ache has trumped her understandable worries about a PND repeat and we could see a pregnant Adele ‘Hello’-ing us on our fine shores next year.
