Everything really is coming up roses for Adele. Just a couple of years after splitting from husband Simon Konecki, the singer’s career is at an all-time high, she is loved up with boyfriend Rich Paul, and the couple are looking towards a happy future together.
It was reported last week that Adele is currently in the process of buying a huge Beverly Hills mansion for a whopping $58m and the 33 year old plans to make it a home for herself, her nine-year-old son Angelo, 40-year-old boyfriend Rich Paul... and any other children she hopes will come along.
“Adele and Rich decided a few months ago that they wanted to move in together, it was just a matter of finding the right property,” a source close to the Easy on Me hitmaker tells heat. “Now that they’ve found it the next step is redecorating and turning it into their dream home. She’s going to be busy with her residency in Las Vegas so Rich is going to be handling a lot of it, he has impeccable taste. They’re both thrilled to be jumping into this next chapter together and they’re saying they hope to have a baby on the way by the end of the year, if not sooner, and really complete their family.”
Speaking to Oprah Winfrey in November last year, Adele admitted she was keen to have more children. She said, “I'm definitely open to it. I would like more children. It wouldn't be the end of the world if I didn't because I have Angelo, but yeah, I think so.”

But we’re told in her typical laidback fashion, Adele – who was pictured out on a date night with sports agent Rich last week – isn’t in a huge rush.
“Adele’s enjoying herself so much with Rich and really having fun. But having a child together is very much in the plan and she’d love to get pregnant in the spring, once her residency in Las Vegas ends.”

For now, the couple have some major house redecoration plans after securing their new property for what real estate sources have described as “an outright steal”.

“Adele’s giving all the credit to Rich for getting her such a good deal,” our insider divulges. “She’s been bragging to everyone about how brilliant he is at negotiating, she loved seeing him in action. It’s her name on the property, but she’s treating it as their future home and involving Rich in every aspect of it. After all, they’re planning to get married so they’ll sharing everything. The interior is not at all their style so they’re going to be redoing it top to bottom and making it their dream home. They’re literally a billion-dollar couple so it’s no exaggeration to say money is no object, it’s going to be the best of the best and of course that includes a dream nursery.”
Having described the end of her relationship with ex-husband Simon as a time in her life she was “really not happy”, things have really turned around for Adele.
“She’s having the time of her life with Rich, this is truly the happiest and healthiest she’s ever been,” our source shares. “But being a mum is the greatest thing that’s happened to her and she’d love to do it again and with someone like Rich. She honestly didn’t think she would be in this position again and thought Angelo might be an only child so is very excited at the prospect of another baby.”
