Adele’s boyfriend to pop the question

2012-02-29 07:30

Los Angeles – Adele’s boyfriend is planning to propose on her birthday.

The Someone Like You hitmaker has been dating Simon Konecki since just before Christmas 2011, but the divorced charity director is so smitten with his new girlfriend, he is putting together plans to take her away in early May and ask her to marry him.

A friend told heat magazine: “After Simon divorced, he never imagined that he’d fine love like this again and be so happy.

“He told her he loved her after just a week and now they say it 10 times a day. Simon knows he wants to propose and hopes to do it on her birthday, which falls on a holiday weekend in May. He wants to take her abroad and do it properly – it now all depends on her schedule.”

Simon – who has a five-year-old daughter – has moved into the 23-year-old star’s new mansion near Brighton.

Another friend added: “They’ve been living together. Adele has even picked out a room for his five-year-old daughter to use when she stays. They love their normal life at home with her dogs.”

Speaking about her 36-year-old boyfriend previously, Adele said he did not care about how successful she was.

She said: “He’s wonderful. He’s proud of me, but he doesn’t care about what I do or what people think.”
