Pop superstar Adele is ready to expand her family.
After a year of touring, the Grammy Award-winning singer, 28, wrapped up the North American leg of her world tour in Phoenix Monday night and surprised fans by announcing she was “off to have a baby.”
She added, “Give it up for me – I did it! I’ll see you on the other side. In a couple of years I’ll be back. You won’t be able to get rid of me.”
While toasting the members of her band who drank champagne, the Hello hitmaker opted for a glass of white wine.
“I’m not going to have any because I’ve got my glorious white wine and I can’t drink it because it wreaks havoc with my acid reflux,” she joked.
The British singer and partner Simon Konecki are parents to 4-year-old son Angelo.
“I just finished my 107 shows in 10 months. 100% live every night. I bloody smashed it, even if I do say so myself. You lot have been incredible, every night you’ve been so beautiful, loving and engaged,” she Instagrammed the image of her welcome-home sign. “My band and my crew you made the whole thing turn. And my beautiful family made it easy for me to do. Big love x.”
The Send My Love singer recently opened up about suffering from postpartum depression after welcoming her first child in October 2012.
“My knowledge of postpartum—or post-natal, as we call it in England—is that you don’t want to be with your child; you’re worried you might hurt your child; you’re worried you weren’t doing a good job,” she shared. “But I was obsessed with my child. I felt very inadequate; I felt like I’d made the worst decision of my life. It can come in many different forms…You’re constantly trying to make up for stuff when you’re a mom.”
She added: “I have a very dark side. I’m very available to depression. I can slip in and out of it quite easily. It started when my granddad died, when I was about 10, and while I never had a suicidal thought, I have been in therapy, lots.”
