Adele had an incredible 2016. Not only did the singer embark on a worldwide tour with Adele Live 2016, but she also took home a plethora of awards for her ridiculously impressive album 25. She even finished the year off by receiving an amazing five Grammy nominations, meaning that she'll be going head to head with Beyoncé at the 2017 ceremony. The fiercely private singer has made no secret of the fact that she puts her family ahead of her career, and according to reports, Adele might have tied the knot with longtime partner Simon Konecki over the holidays. So, is Adele married?
The singer has been photographed wearing a gold band on her ring finger. And, according to People, "Konecki has also been pictured wearing a ring, fueling speculation." When asked about the reports by Bustle, Adele's rep had no comment.
With only a handful of dates left on the Adele Live tour, the "Hello" singer has picked the perfect time, if she did indeed get married.
Back in Nov. 2016, Adele apparently joked with an audience in Phoenix and said,
The musician is renowned for taking breaks from music to focus on her personal life, and she has certainly made it sound as though she's ready to focus on her family again, which is why a secret wedding right now would make so much sense.
As reported by E! News, back in Oct. 2016, during her Adele Live tour date in Nashville, the singer told the audience,
However, she also said, "I won't get pregnant until the end of the tour," making it sound as though she has a plan for 2017. A diamond ring she was previously seen wearing seems to have been replaced by a more serious looking gold wedding band, so it's possible that Adele and partner Konecki have exchanged vows. The diamond ring was never confirmed as being an engagement ring, but back in Oct. 2016, Glamour reported that Adele had allegedly "agreed to marry the charity activist but the duo is keeping the news on the down-low." In Nov. 2016, Mail Online said that the singer was "secretly engaged" and planning a Christmas wedding. Perhaps both of these rumors were true after all?
Photos over at JustJared show Adele wearing her new ring, while shopping for groceries. It might be some time before we get official confirmation as to whether Adele is married or not, but her new piece of jewelry is understandably causing a lot of speculation among fans.
