Is Adele set to tie the knot with Simon Konecki this Christmas?

Adele has been in a relationship with Simon Konecki, the father of her child, for several years.

And now reports are claiming that the British singer, 28, will tie the knot with her man this Christmas.

The famously elusive star, who is currently in the midst of her world tour, is believed to have become engaged recently and is planning a festive ceremony.

According to the Daily Mirror, a friend of the Hello hitmaker said: “The plan is to marry in LA. The wedding will be in one of the school holidays so Simon’s daughter can attend. It’s looking like it will be Christmas, but they want to keep details under wraps.”

The source added that Adele is not wearing her wedding ring and that she hopes for a family-oriented ceremony.

Adele and charity boss Simon are parents to four-year-old son Angelo – he also has another children from a previous relationship.

The singer recently opened up about her feelings of post-natal depression following Angelo’s birth.

Speaking to Vanity Fair, she said that she loved her son more than anything but felt inadequate as a mother and had to spend time away from him after he was born.

She said: “My knowledge of postpartum – or post-natal, as we call it in England – is that you don’t want to be with your child; you’re worried you might hurt your child; you’re worried you weren’t doing a good job.

“But I was obsessed with my child. I felt very inadequate; I felt like I’d made the worst decision of my life… It can come in many different forms.

“Eventually I just said, I’m going to give myself an afternoon a week, just to do whatever the f*** I want without my baby. A friend of mine said, ‘Really? Don’t you feel bad?’ I said, ‘I do, but not as bad as I’d feel if I didn’t do it’.”
