Recently, rumors have circulated that Adele and her boyfriend of five years Simon Konecki, were married during a secret ceremony over Christmas.
And on Sunday, February the 12th, the 28-year-old pop star confirmed the rumors as she addressed her partner as ‘my husband’ during her Grammys acceptance speech.
Taking to the stage at the Los Angeles Staples Center after she had won Grammys in five categories, the London-born singer said: “Grammys, I appreciate it, the Academy, I love you, my manager, my husband and my son – you’re the only reason I do it.”

New York-born Konecki, 42, who moved to England when he was 10 years old, met the singer in 2011. The couple has a four-year-old son named Angelo.
They were introduced to each other by Ed Sheeran. Konecki, who originally pursued a career as a broker at Lehman Brothers, gave it up in order to work on more charitable causes. He runs the charity Drop4Drop, which works towards the provision of clean water in poor countries.
