Adele and Rich Paul have been together since 2021, igniting rumours at the 2022 BRIT Awards that they were engaged after she was seen with a huge pear-shaped diamond on her wedding finger.

The couple got together two years after Adele and ex-husband Simon Konecki separated, and much of her last album '30’ is thought to be about not only the heartbreak of divorce but about meeting someone new.

And in her Las Vegas residency show on 16th September Adele only fuelled speculation she and Rich are married when she referred to him as her husband.

As she walked through the audience to chat with some of her fans, one woman asked if she could marry her and Adele hilariously turned her down by saying she’s straight, adding her ‘husband’ was in the crowd.

Now, Adele seems to have confirmed that Rich is her husband as two audience members claimed that she announced it during an Alan Car show in Los Angeles. When Alan asked the crowd if anyone got married recently Adele reportedly shouted "I did".

So, are they husband and wife, when did they tie the knot and when did they get engaged? Here’s what we know.

Are Adele and Rich Paul married?

Adele has seemingly confirmed that her and Rich Paul are married! After all the hints pointing to them being husband and wife, fans have reported a moment at Alan Carr’s LA comedy show which confirms it.

Two attendees at Alan Carr's show have told celebrity gossip Instagram account Deuxmoi that Adele was also in the audience, which is no surprise as she and Alan are famously best friends.

One wrote: “I was at Alan Carr’s comedy show in LA tonight and Adele was in the audience. Alan asked the crowd if anyone got married recently and Adele shouted ‘I did.'”

The second contributor said Adele was "sitting right behind me with a friend having the best time" as they detailed the same "I did" heckle.

Before this revelation Adele had called Rich her ‘husband’ after turning down a fan’s marriage proposal at her Vegas Residency on 16th September.

The ‘Hello’ singer ignited speculation she and Rich had walked down the aisle last September, when she posted a picture of her Emmy Award on her coffee table. In the background eagle-eyed fans spotted a personalised board game called ‘The Paul’s’, wondering if it was a wedding gift for the couple.

Just four months prior, they moved in to a new house and celebrated one year together.

Whether they are or aren’t married, Adele and Rich are in a super serious relationship, moving in together last year and openly discussing their plans to have more kids.

In another recent Las Vegas concert Adele said she really ‘wants to be a mum again’ so writes down names whenever she hears any she likes.

After a fan asked her to pick between two baby names, Adele responded: “Well, I can’t say Parker because Rich likes that name. I’ll say Spencer. I like Spencer.”
