What is Adele's full name, is she single and does she have kids? Here's all you need to know about Adele after she confirmed her long-awaited come back.

Adele's new album '30' (opens in new tab) is just days away from being launched on November 17th. The new album is Adele's first since she released '25' in 2015 and is set to touch on Adele's son Angelo, her 'embarrassing' divorce from husband Simon Konecki (opens in new tab) and blossoming love with new boyfriend Rich Paul (opens in new tab).

After Adele's weight loss (opens in new tab) set chins wagging about a pending come-back last year, the Tottenham-born star confirmed that she was stepping back into the music industry last month, releasing the lead single for '30', 'Easy On Me'.

Since then, Adele has opened up on the past few years of her life in her One Night Only interview with Oprah Winfrey (opens in new tab) and is set to wow UK fans with An Audience With Adele (opens in new tab) which airs on ITV this week.

Adele has touched the souls of her fans with new lyrics from the album (opens in new tab) already, performing Hold On and I Drink Wine from the '30' tracklist (opens in new tab) during her Oprah appearance and got upset when she was forced to cancel her Las Vegas residency (opens in new tab).

But what is Adele's full name, is she single and does she have kids?

What's Adele's full name and does she have kids?

Adele is more formerly known as Adele Laurie Blue Adkins but professionally, she just uses the name Adele.

Adele has one son called Angelo, aged eight, with her ex-husband Simon Konecki. His birth on 19th October 2012 wasn't made public until 2013 at the Golden Globe Awards during which she thanked her then three-month-old son, and his name was kept under wraps for years.

Adele gave her son the cute nickname Little Peanut.

Angelo's father has joint custody with Adele and Simon splitting amicably.

What is Adele's net worth in 2021?

As one of the world's best-selling music artists, Adele has sold more than 120 million records and has an estimated net worth 2021 of $190 million, according to Celebrity Net Worth.

Adele has earned more than $400 million, primarily through record sales and concert performances.

After graduating in arts from the BRIT School in 2006, Adele signed a record deal with XL Recordings and since then, her hard work and dedication have catapulted her into becoming one of the greatest singer-songwriters of all time.

Adele confirmed her long-awaited return to the spotlight last October but just a few days later she received backlash last year for her ‘tone deaf’ Saturday Night Live sketch (opens in new tab).

Adele new album 2021

For weeks fans have speculated about the arrival of Adele's new album, after seeing the number 30 pop up on advertising boards across the world (opens in new tab). With one most recently being spotted outside BBC Broadcasting House in London.

BBC Radio 1 started the speculation, telling its followers '30 spotted at the BBC. Hello @Adele is that you?'

Famously Adele's last album was named 25, and her previous were 19, and 21 so it is therefore fitting that her next album could be called 30 - especially as Adele is now in her 30s.

And in preparation for her new music dropping, Adele updated her social media and fan newsletter sign-up service ready for the upcoming launch. She changed the cover photos on her Twitter and Instagram to resemble a grey-blue night sky with a cloud-like haze over it.

And whilst having grabbed people's attention, Adele has started drip-feeding fans details of her new single Easy On Me which is out 15th of October. She shared a video clip of her driving in a car listening to a cassette as sheet music blows out of the window.

Adele announced tour dates for her 30 album, and Adele tickets for her 2022 tour (opens in new tab) go on pre-sale this week.

Is Adele married or single?

Adele is no longer married to Simon Konecki, the pair split in 2019 (opens in new tab) and the divorce was finalised in March this year after a two-year battle over finances.

This year has already been an immensely exciting one for Adele fans after she confirmed her romance with her new boyfriend Rich Paul. And if things go so well, we might need to amend the answer to What's Adele's full name? - especially if she ties the knot again.

Her new romance brings a touch of happiness for the singer, after earlier this year Adele mourned the loss of her father Mark Evans, who died aged 57 (opens in new tab) following a cancer battle.

Does Adele have siblings?

Adele has a half-brother called Cameron O'Sullivan who is said to bear a striking resemblance to her.

The siblings, who are understood not to have spoken since 2014, share the same father Mark Evans.

But the semi-professional rugby player previously revealed that they weren't close. He told the Mail Online back in 2016, "It’s hard because we never see each other. We’re not close at all and that's the most difficult thing."

Although Cameron said he and Adele 'barely speak', he's grown close to her mother, Penny Adkins, despite the lack of blood relation.

He said, "There's nothing there, she's so busy that we're not really close. I've not spoken to her for a while. I'm really close with [Adele's] mum but that's it. I keep in contact with Penny on the phone."

Despite being siblings, Cameron and Adele grew up in different parts of the country - him in rural Wales and her in Tottenham, London - and finally came into each other's lives back in 2007.

Speaking previously about their bond, Adele admitted, 'It's bizarre growing up in a completely different city but then when you see each other it's as if you've spent every day of your lives together.

"Straight away I'm bullying him. Straight way he's like, "You f**k off'. It's amazing, immediate. He's lovely. Really shy, which is the only difference."

How Adele lose weight?

Adele's seven stone weight loss caught the attention of fans when she first showed off her new, slimmer figure on Instagram back in May of 2020.

Adele credits the Sirtfood diet (opens in new tab) and working with a personal trainer for her dramatic weight loss. But it Adele’s diet plan, which cut out toxic and processed food and drinks, that allowed the singer to really start seeing results.

Adele has always looked amazing, but the Grammy Award-winning singer reportedly started to lose weight before she embarked on her mammoth 13-month ’25’ album tour in 2016. What started as a fitness journey for her health, to support the demands of touring, turned into a dramatic transformation.

She is expected to reveal all during her upcoming Oprah Winfrey two-hour special interview Adele: One Night Only (opens in new tab).

With the countdown to 15th October now on, bookies Betfair (opens in new tab) have already started taking bets on Adele having a Xmas No1, headline Glastonbury, win 1-3 Grammys in 2022, have a No1 album AND sing in the John Lewis Christmas ad.

Betfair Spokesperson Sam Rosbottom said, "Adele is back and has been teasing her new music. Rumour Has It, it is going to be a big year for her and we make her odds-on at 5/6 to have this year's Christmas number one. Fans can't wait to say Hello to her in person at one of her concerts, and with one Glastonbury headliner already announced this week, we make the London superstar 8/11 to take one of the other headline slots."
