Adele feels happily in love with her boyfriend Rich Paul.
While gracing the cover of ELLE's September issue, the 34-year-old singer opened up about falling in love with Paul, 40, and their relationship today.
"I've never been in love like this. I'm obsessed with him," Adele told the magazine in an interview published on Monday.
When asked by ELLE if she ever wants to get married again after divorcing ex Simon Konecki - with whom she shares 9-year-old son Angelo - in 2019, the star replied: "Yes, absolutely."

"I definitely want more kids," Adele explained. "I'm a housewife and I'm a matriarch, and having a stable life helps me with my music. But right now, all I have on my mind is [my upcoming residency in Las Vegas]. I fucking want to nail it."

RELATED: Adele and Rich Paul's relationship timeline
Adele and Paul were first spotted together publicly at an NBA game in July 2021. After they were spotted on the sidelines, a source confirmed to PEOPLE that the artist had been dating the sports agent "for a few months".
In February the following year, Adele sparked engagement rumors when she was spotted wearing a diamond ring on her ring finger at the BRIT Awards.
That same month and during The Graham Norton Show, the "Someone Like You" singer played coy about engagement rumors when the TV host pointed out the massive diamond she was wearing. "As if I'd ever tell anyone whether it's me or not," Adele replied, referring to her jewellery. "It's nice though, isn't it?"

In her interview with ELLE, Adele addressed the engagement rumors again, saying with a laugh: "Well! So. Well, I'm not married."
"I'm not married. I'm not married!" she stressed when pressed further about her relationship status. "I'm just in love! I'm happier than ever. I might as well be married.”
However, in a subsequent chat with ELLE, the 15-time Grammy winner clarified, "I'm not engaged. I just love high end jewelry boy!”

The interview comes a month after Adele and Paul were spotted on holiday in Porto Cervo, Italy.
The "Rolling in the Deep" singer soaked up the sun in a flowy, multicolored dress and large sunglasses, while Paul wore a white, pink, blue and orange sweater with white pants and aviator sunglasses.

Speaking to ELLE, Adele said she told Paul she had always wanted to visit one of the Italian islands but was worried about meeting paparazzi there.
"He was like, 'You would let that stop you from going where you would most like to vacation?' she recalled to the outlet. "He's like, 'For a photo, what's the worst that can happen?' "
The September issue of ELLE hits newsstands on August 30th.
