Setting an example. Adele and her ex-husband, Simon Konecki, are “winning” at coparenting their 7-year-old son, Angelo, a source exclusively tells Life & Style. “He has both parents in his life. It’s a great balance.”
The “Rolling in the Deep” artist, 32, filed for divorce from Simon, 46, in September 2019. Despite ending their three-year marriage, Adele and the businessman reside only minutes away from each other in Beverly Hills.
“Adele is thankful to have Simon living nearby to help her with Angelo,” assures the insider. “She’s not trying to be a do-it-all super mom. Angelo needs both parents and Simon is a great dad.” While the former flames agree “nannies are great,” Simon and Adele believe “having family” look after their child is what’s best.
However, “some of her friends don’t understand” the pair’s continued friendship, the source explains. “Adele likes to say that she divorced Simon, not Angelo,” the insider says, adding that the U.K. pop star and her ex “don’t hate each other.” Beyond Adele’s amicable relationship with Simon, she credits her 100-pound weight loss for bringing her closer to Angelo.
The Grammy winner is embracing “motherhood on a whole different level,” a separate source Life & Style. “She says she has more energy now — every aspect of her life has shifted. She feels energized and excited about the future.”
Adele debuted her slimmer figure at Drake’s birthday party in October 2019 and has since been focused on “getting healthy,” rather than “becoming super skinny or shaming anyone else’s body,” the insider added.
According to a third source, Adele has hit her “goal” weight and hopes to maintain her health and fitness by adjusting her overall lifestyle. “She cut out her beloved cups of tea — she was up to 10 cups a day — which she used to drink with two spoonfuls of sugar,” the insider said, noting Adele is “all about” green juice, salads and kale. “Seeing the results is what keeps her going.”
