Donning Burberry and Dior, Adele covers the March issue of Vogue and opens up about family life with beau Simon Konecki and their 3-year-old son Angelo.
On motherhood: “I can’t have any other junk in my head to worry about as well. [Angelo] makes me very proud of myself. When I became a parent, I felt like I was truly living. I had a purpose, where before I didn’t… My main thing is Mum, then it’s me, then it’s work. I think I had to take the right amount of time off to let people miss me.”
On writing her age in her notebook and realizing she turned 25: “I was just shocked that all of a sudden I was 25! But actually, I like myself more than ever. I feel so comfortable in my own skin. I really like how I look, I like who I am, I like everyone that I surround myself with.”
On her weight loss and newfound shopping habit: “I was trying to get some stamina for my tour, so I lost a bit of weight. Now I fit into normal, off-the-shelf clothes—which is really a big problem for me!”
On her new song When We Were Young: “[The Song is] a bit of a letter to myself. It’s really about regrouping, because naturally me and my friends have dispersed. We all love each other still, but we don’t have time to be unconditional and 24/7. . . . My eyes were so cloudy for a year after I had my child, and I thought I would never regroup with myself, ever.”
