Adele has said she is ‘ready to be a mother again soon’ as she spoke with fans during her Weekends With Adele Las Vegas residency show on Saturday.
And whether she’s thinking about kids’ names to renovating her £45m Beverly Hills mansion for her blended family with sports agent and father-of-three Rich Paul, 41, the usually private singer, 35, has made no secret of her wish to expand their family.
Adele and Rich remain very much in love nearly two years after they first went public with their romance.
The singer was previously married to Simon Konecki, who she divorced in March 2021. The former couple are parents to son Angelo, 10.
She would love a sibling for her son and speaking to a fan at The Colosseum at Caesars Palace, she said: ‘I really want to be a mum again soon’

She can’t stop talking about her motherhood dreams
Speaking on The Graham Norton Show in February 2022, Adele said she was keen to have her first child with Rich.
She said: ‘I would like to have more children – I only just feel like I’ve caught up with my sleep from nine years ago when I had my son.’ [with ex-husband Simon].’
And discussing about her Las Vegas residency – which at the time remained delayed – she explained she would rather be done with the residency by 2023, so that she could focus on expanding her family.
She told Graham Norton in 2022: ‘ I want a baby next year. I have plans next year! I have plans. Imagine if I have to cancel the shows because I’m having a baby.’
She told Graham: ‘I want a baby next year. I have plans next year! I have plans. Imagine if I have to cancel the shows because I’m having a baby.’
In 2022, she told the BBC: ‘I definitely would like a couple more kids. It would be wonderful if we can. If not, I’ve got Angelo. I just want to be happy. I love being a mom.’
She also told ELLE last summer: ‘I definitely want more kids. I’m a homemaker and I’m a matriarch, and a stable life helps me with my music.’
Adele is already dreaming up baby names with Rich Paul
Sharing her own method of finding potential baby names, Adele added: ‘I’ve actually been writing lists. So every time I see a name that I like, I write it down in my phone.’
When asked whether she preferred Spencer or Parker, Adele revealed that her boyfriend, Rich Paul, had also been looking into baby names.
‘I can’t say Parker because Rich likes that name!’ she exclaimed.
Earlier this month she couldn’t hide her emotions as she helped a couple to reveal the gender of their unborn baby during her show.
In a now-viral video which was shared online by the baby’s father, Adele agreed to disclose the gender of the child during her sold-out performance.

After revealing that the parents-to-be were expecting a baby boy, Adele began sobbing and asked them to one day repay the favour to her.
At the beginning of the video, Adele asked the couple their names, which they told her were Shantelle and Chris, from New York.
Shantelle, who told the performer she was 18 weeks along, impressed the star because they were able to sneak a sign in, which apparently isn’t allowed.
Adele then told them: ‘I’ve never done this before!’
After opening the envelope, Adele announced:’ Shantelle and Chris are having a baby, boy!’
Adele was overcome and began crying as she shed tears of happiness for the couple.
Then she made a request of the soon-to-be parents: ‘If and when I get pregnant will you do my gender reveal?’
Father-of-three Rich really wants to become a father again
Rich who is already a father-of-three, previously told E! News that he was open to the idea of welcoming another child into his life.
He told the publication: ‘As a young dad, growing a business, it was pretty tough. But now looking as an older dad, if I was to have more kids, I’m looking forward to being a different dad.
The sports agent also remarked that he had learned much from his days as a younger parent.

‘I have a daughter that’s a junior in college so I was a very young dad, but now, different age, different time in my life, different position in my life. I’m really looking forward to being an older dad,’ he said.
‘Oftentimes as you’re building a business, you’re on the go, you’re moving around, the kids grow up fast in a blink of an eye,” he said.
‘Next thing, you know, they’re walking and they’re riding the bike, running and flipping around and that’s the problem.

While they have only been seeing each other since 2021, the pair actually met for the first time at a friend’s birthday party several years before.

They put their love on display when they attended the NBA Finals as a couple in July, and again at LeBron James’ wife’s birthday party in August.
Of their reconnection years after their first meeting, Adele said ‘Rich just incredibly arrived,’ and that their union has since had a positive impact on her well-being.
Speaking to Vogue, she explained: ‘I don’t feel anxious or nervous or frazzled. It’s quite the opposite. It’s wild.
‘It feels like it’s consistent and considerate enough that I don’t care who knows. He’s great. He’s so f**kng funny. He’s so smart, you know.’
The couple’s $58million baby making love nest
In May that year, Adele confirmed she had moved in with Rich as she shared a snap of them outside their new home, including one where they both held up the keys to their abode.
it had been previously claimed the vocal powerhouse was splashing out ‘$58million’ (£45m) on a fourth property – Sylvester Stallone’s Beverly Hills mega mansion.
And now the home has revealed to be a new love nest for the singer and her boyfriend.
Adele already owned three homes in a star-studded neighbourhood of Beverly Hills before adding Stallone’s former abode to her property portfolio.

‘Homemaker’ Adele has said they are renovating the home together with a blended family in mind.
The 18,587 square-foot home was designed by Richard Landry and boasts eight-bedroom and 12-bathrooms.
Stallone had been working hard to sell the mega mansion that he purchased in the ’90s, and initially listed the beautiful home for $110million, but there were no takers. In May, he cut the price down to $85million.
And the security is very good: ‘It’s double gated. You’re gated within the community, and then, again, when you get to the house, you’re gated,’ Mills said.
The property was designed architect Edward Granzbach and built in 1994.
