They have always kept their relationship away from limelight. And keeping their romance just for them seems to have paid off for singer Adele and her long-term boyfriend Simon Konecki who are reported to be engaged.
Adele has already had the most amazing year professionally, having broken sales records for her albums as well as signing a record deal worth £90 million.
And she is set or a fantastic year personally next year, having agreed to marry 42-year-old Mr Konecki.
Adele, 28, and Mr Konecki have been together for five years and the pair have a four-year-old son, Angelo, together.
They are said to be keen to take their relationship to the next stage.
A source is reported to have said: “They’ve decided it’s the right time to think about making that step. They won’t make a big song and dance about it. That’s not the way either of them are, and you won’t see Adele walking around with a huge diamond on her finger flaunting it.
“But they’re ready to take the next step and both very excited about the prospect.”
Adele and her beau are certainly not expected to be signing up for any magazine deal to feature their wedding in the likes of Hello or OK! Instead, their ceremony is anticipated to be a very private affair, with only close friends and family.
The singer has been touring her album 25, which has so far sold a staggering 20 million copies, over the last year.
She is now looking forward to spending Christmas at home with her family so she can spend some quality time with her husband-to-be and her son.
Adele has recently signed a record-breaking deal with Sony.
Celebrating their fifth anniversary, Mr Konecki demonstrated his love for Adele with an incredibly romantic gesture.
At the end of her show in Nashville, he arranged for pink confetti to fall from the ceiling with messagesincluding ‘I love you’ and ‘You are an angel’.
While it is very rare that Adele opens up about her love life, she did say in an interview around a year ago that she was living what she described as “the ultimate love story”.
She said she was in an “amazing relationship” adding that her boyfriend was “so there for me and so loyal and is really part of my core now, that’s what made me write about everything I’ve ever done, because I’ve got his love.”
