Slay! Adele showed off her impressive weight loss in a little black dress to celebrate her 32nd birthday. The singer took a moment to thank fans for the love on her big day and shared a photo that flaunted her new, slim figure.
“Thank you for the birthday love. I hope you’re all staying safe and sane during this crazy time,” the birthday girl wrote on a May 5 Instagram post, referring to the global coronavirus pandemic. “I’d like to thank all of our first responders and essential workers who are keeping us safe while risking their lives! You are truly our angels … 2020 OK, bye, thanks.” Adele rocked a short, black cocktail dress with puffy sleeves for the occasion and wore her blonde hair straightened. The Grammy winner could be seen laughing in the middle of a wood ring surrounded by large bouquets of flowers in what appeared to be her backyard. There was also a laptop set up on a black pedestal, so it’s possible she had a video call with friends and family to celebrate.
The “Send My Love” artist has been working hard after losing 100 pounds over the course of the year and is feeling “more confident than ever,” an insider exclusively told Life & Style in January. A few changes like “avoiding snacking in-between meals” and cutting back on carbs have garnered big results for Adele. “Working out has also become part of her daily routine. It helps being in L.A. because being healthy is very much part of the lifestyle,” added the source. “Adele used to be incredibly self-conscious — she was always covering up and even felt uncomfortable eating in public,” but now, she’s feeling amazing in her own skin.
She looked happy and healthy over the holidays in a waist-hugging black silk gown over Christmas. The soulful songstress shared black-and-white pictures from a photo booth posing with the Grinch. She put her enviable figure on display in a sparkly leopard gown again in February during Beyoncé and Jay-Z’s Oscars afterparty at West Hollywood’s Chateau Mormont.
“Slow weight loss is a sign of major lifestyle changes and also a good indication of long-lasting results vs. a quick fix!” fitness expert Nadia Murdock tells Life & Style exclusively of the singer’s progress.
The “Someone Like You” singer’s weight loss came on the heels of her divorce from husband Simon Konecki. They announced they were going their separate ways in April 2019 after two years of marriage, and Adele officially filed for divorce from the 46-year-old in September. They share their 7-year-old son Angelo.
It’s amazing to see Adele having fun and living her best life!
