The pitter-patter of tiny feet might soon be heard in Adele and Rich Paul’s beautiful new home.

The British pop star and her boyfriend, an America sports agent, recently moved into a lavish $58 million (R928m) mansion together after dating for a year.

Rich (40), who has three children from a previous relationship, recently revealed he’s looking forward to being an older dad.

"As a young dad, growing a business, it was pretty tough,” he told E! News.

“But now as an older dad, if I was to have more kids, I'm looking forward to being a different dad.

“You know, I have a daughter that's a junior in college, so I was a very young dad, but now, different age, different time in my life, different position in my life. I'm really looking forward to being an older dad.”

He added he hopes to be a more patient dad when he expands his family.

Despite all his accomplishments and philanthropy, Rich’s children just see him as a typical dad.

“My kids never tell me I’m a cool dad,” he said. “Their friends think I’m a cool dad, so I feel good about that. But my kids never really tell me, ‘Dad, you’re cool.’ They don’t show me that love like that, but I know it’s deep down inside.

“They definitely don't want to hang with dad, for sure,” said the sports agent and businessman. 

Adele and Rich could welcome a little one as early as next year, according to sources close to the Hello singer.

“Adele wants to have more children in the next year and add to her family. She didn't buy an eight-bedroom house for just her and her son,” the source says. “She believes that she's found the one in Rich and sees herself growing old with him.

“This house purchase is the first step toward that and, ultimately, she wants to get remarried and have her happily-ever-after,” the source added.

Adele already has one child, Angelo (10), with her ex-husband, Simon Konecki.

The Easy on Me hitmaker says Rich has met her son and their relationship is “incredible, open-hearted, and the easiest one” she's ever been in because of the self-growth and healing she’s done.

In February, Adele sparked rumours she and Rich were engaged after she walked down the red carpet at the 2022 Brit Awards with a show-stopping diamond ring on her finger.

"As if I would ever tell anyone if I was or wasn't," she teased on The Graham Norton Show when the host asked her about the sparkler.  

"Lovely though, innit?" she added
