Adele has sparked speculation she has married boyfriend Rich Paul.

The Easy On Me singer, 35, went public with the American sports agent, 41, in July 2021, two years after she split from ex-husband Simon Konecki, with whom she shares son Angelo, 10.

It was previously reported the pair got engaged after Adele was spotted with a large diamond on her finger, then sources in April claimed the pair were planning a summer wedding.

Now, the Hello hitmaker fuelled speculation that they have tied the knot secretly after she described Paul as her “husband” during her Weekends With Adele show in Las Vegas on Saturday.

In footage from the gig, which was originally shared to TikTok, the British singer told a female audience member: “You can’t marry me. I’m straight, my love, and my husband’s here tonight.”

When the fan responded, “Can you try?” Adele hilariously replied, “No, I don’t want to try. I’m with Rich. You’re crazy, leave me alone.”

After the video went viral online, fans of Adele were quick to point out her off-hand “husband” remark and question whether the pair had already said ‘I do’.

One fan commented: “her husband??? omgg Adele Paul???” while another remarked: “Did she secretly get married?”

“HUSBAND?!?!?!?!?!?!” a third wrote. “No.stop. MOTHER IS MARRIED??”

Echoing many fans sentiments, a fifth simply penned: “Excuse me miss ma’am your whatttt??”

The Standard has contacted Adele’s representatives for comment.

The speculation comes after Adele confirmed that she’s “ready to be a mum again soon” last month and excitedly revealed she already has a list of names.

While chatting a concertgoer during her Las Vegas residency, the Grammy winner said: “I really want to be a mom again soon” before revealing that she’s been taking note of 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.”

Last year, Paul, who has three children from a previous relationship, also spoke about the possibility of having more children.

He told E! News in 2022: “As a young dad, growing a business, it was pretty tough.

“But now looking as an older dad and my kids being much older, and obviously, if I was to have more kids ... I’m looking forward to being a different dad, a more patient dad.”
