Adele announces her engagement to the world

It happened just in time for Adele’s new album.

The British singer delivered a surprise marriage proposal — to her partner Simon Konecki, herself — on Instagram late Tuesday night.

Lyrically, the couple has long been a topic of conversation — in 2011, Adele said on stage, “If I get divorced, or I get engaged, if Simon takes me on a date, I’m gonna marry Simon.”

The pregnancy rumors, which to this day fans believe to be true, really got fans buzzing when Konecki confirmed them last year.

The couple have been together since 2010.

The pop star has been promoting her third studio album, “25,” which was released Friday. During an appearance on BBC Radio 1 on Monday, she said the songwriting process was made easier by distance and being “contemplative” after a separation.

The announcement of her engagement was another revelation. But it was not unexpected.

The two don’t keep their wedding details private — unlike other popular musicians.

Each has posted lengthy entries on Instagram about long commitment and godliness, ending in what many interpreted as final vows.

Amid the lengthy blog posts, a similar topic came up.

Both shared a video in late April about how much they love each other: “My boyfriend and I met on an Asian holiday eight years ago. We lived in separate places but we would meet up and then drift apart. We lost touch for a few years but in 2013 a mutual friend gave us contact. We were both single, we both lived in London. We bumped into each other when he was on a holiday with his family in Barbados and we bonded over our mutual love of the arts. We got talking on Skype and a few months later were in a holiday rental in my village in the West Country. It was the first holiday I’d ever taken. We had a lot of catching up to do and our bodies needed a break.”

The couple even had each other’s babies: sons Angelo, 10, and Havva, 8.
