Adele confirmed she was married in her Grammys acceptance speech
The Hello hitmaker thanked her “husband” and her son in her speech after being awarded album of the year at the Grammy Awards for her latest release, 25.
Rumours have been circulating that the 28-year-old singer had married her long-time boyfriend, 42-year-old businessman Simon, in a secret ceremony over Christmas after she was seen wearing a gold band on her wedding finger.
A tearful Adele took to the stage at the Staples Centre in Los Angeles to thank her manager and gave an emotional acceptance speech, referencing her family and her struggles with being a mother, saying: “In my pregnancy and through becoming a mother I lost a lot of myself.”

She also said that having a son was “the biggest blessing” of her life.
The couple have a four-year-old son Angelo and got engaged last October after dating for five years.
As well as album of the year, Adele also scooped the Grammys for song of the year for Hello, record of the year, best pop solo performance and the gong for pop vocal album.
In another of her acceptance speeches, the star thanked her long-tome manager Jonathan Dickins, saying: “I owe you everything.
“We’ve been together 10 years and I love you like you’re my dad,” she continued, before appearing to make a dig at her estranged father, adding pointedly: “I don’t love my dad, that’s the thing. That doesn’t mean a lot. I love you like I would love my dad.”

Her father, Marc Evans, reportedly left her and her mother when she was just three, and in an interview with The Sun in 2011 he revealed: “I was a rotten father at a time when she really needed me. I was putting away two litres of vodka and seven or eight pints of Stella every day.”
Adele had a drama-packed evening, also shocking audiences by breaking her best album award in two to give half to Beyoncé, saying: “I couldn’t possibly accept this award.”
After thanking Beyoncé in her acceptance speech, she said: “Lemonade was so monumental and so well thought out and so beautiful and soul-baring. We all got to see a side to you that you don’t always let us see and we appreciate that.”

Adele told Beyoncé: “I love you and I always have and I always will,” before later being seen with her award broken in half, apparently giving the crown part to the Lemonade star.
Adele’s eventful evening was topped off by an emotional tribute to the late George Michael, during which she swore and was forced to restart the performance.
Singing the Wham! frontman’s hit Fastlove, she stopped halfway through and swore before saying: “I know it’s live TV, I’m sorry. I can’t do it again like last year."
At the previous Grammy Awards British star suffered with audio issues during her performance.
“I’m sorry for swearing and I’m sorry for starting again,” she continued. “Can we please start it again?” I’m sorry, I can’t mess this up for him.”
