Adele joked on stage that she's "not the greatest wife, really, when it comes to football — even though my partner absolutely loves it"
The "Hello" superstar referred to herself as Paul's "wife" on stage during her Weekends with Adele residency at The Colosseum in Las Vegas on Saturday — shortly after calling him "husband" at a show earlier this month.
In the midst of an impromptu speech about sports, Adele, 35, joked that she's "not the greatest wife" to the sports agent, as it's taken some work for her to get into American football, given its lack of presence in her native England.
"I have spent a lot of my time trying to understand and also enjoy American football, 'cause I love sports. I actually love watching sports," she told the crowd, according to fan-filmed footage, explaining that football in the U.K. is referred to as soccer in the United States.
"I just don't understand the game, and it's so annoying because I'm actually quite a clever person," continued Adele. "Why does the whistle always get blown? Why is it four yards? Why are there inches? Why does it stop when it gets f---ing exciting?"
She added that she gets "nervous" about the players' safety during the games before making the comment about being "not the greatest wife, really, when it comes to football — even though my partner absolutely loves it."
Earlier this month, Adele referred to Paul, 41, as her "husband" during a hilarious conversation with a female audience member who asked about the possibility of marrying the "Easy on Me" singer.
"You can’t marry me. I’m straight, my love, and my husband’s here tonight," she said, per a TikTok video of the moment.
After the fan asked, “Can you try?” the Grammy winner jokingly responded, “No, I don’t want to try. I’m with Rich. You’re crazy, leave me alone."
Last month, the "I Drink Wine" singer revealed that she'd like to have another baby, according to fan videos posted on TikTok.
"I really want to be a mom again soon," Adele shared after a pregnant audience member asked her for help choosing a name for her future daughter.
The singer — who shares 10-year-old son, Angelo, with her ex-husband Simon Konecki — said she's already preparing for a new bundle of joy by saving name ideas on her phone. "I've actually been writing lists," she continued. "So every time I see a name that I like, I write it down in my phone."
Adele has spoken in the past about her desire to give Angelo a sibling. "I definitely want more kids. I’m a homemaker, and I’m a matriarch, and a stable life helps me with my music," she told Elle in 2022.
However, she explained that the timing wasn't quite right yet. "Right now, all I got in my brain is Vegas. I want to f---ing nail it," she said.
During a June 2022 interview with E! News, her beau Paul discussed the possibility of having "more kids" — he's already a father to three children — and how the experience might be different now that he's a bit older.
"As a young dad, growing a business, it was pretty tough," he told the outlet, referring to his sports agency. "But now looking as an older dad and my kids being much older, and obviously, if I was to have more kids... I'm looking forward to being a different dad, a more patient dad."
