Adele has 'never been more buoyant' than during Rich Paul romance

Adele is "ecstatically happy" with Rich Paul.

The 'Hello' hitmaker and her 41-year-old sports agent partner - who have been the subject of plenty of speculation amid rumours they have secretly got married - are said to be in a great place in their relationship.

A source told People: "She is ecstatically happy with Rich and has never been more buoyant, inspired and secure.

"We all want to be as happy as Adele."

The 35-year-old singer - who has son Angelo, 11, with ex-husband Simon Konecki - is said to be keen to "continue the happiness" at this stage in her life.

The insider added: "Adele’s life is great, and all she wants is to continue the happiness.

"Just listen to what she has to say, and when you see her you can feel the happiness!"

Adele has referred to Rich as "her husband" a number of times on stage and the father-of-three did little to dispel the speculation earlier last month.

The 'Rolling In The Deep' hitmaker recently referred to herself as a "wife" while talking about the sports agent being a fan of American football and her not taking any interest in the game.

She told the crowd at her 'Weekends with Adele' concert at The Colosseum at Caesars Palace: "I'm not the greatest wife when it comes to football."

Just days earlier, the Grammy winner called Rich her "husband".

The pop star seemingly updated her relationship status while chatting to fans at her show in Las Vegas, on September 16, during a segment of the gig where she walks around and answers questions from audience members.

A video posted on TikTok showed a female fan asking to marry the singer and the request prompted Adele to reply: "You can't marry me, I'm straight, my love. And my husband's here tonight. He's here."
