Rich Paul, Adele’s boyfriend, appears eager to bring the couple’s families together and possibly grow their brood.
The 40-year-old sports agent, who already has three children from a previous relationship, spoke with E! News on Friday about the possibility of becoming a father again.
‘Growing a business as a young father was difficult. But now, as an older father with much older children, and obviously if I were to have more children, I’m looking forward to being a different father, a more patient father,’ he said.
‘Oftentimes while you’re growing a business, you’re on the road, you’re travelling around, and the kids grow up fast in the blink of an eye,’ Paul explained the challenges of being a young father.
‘The next thing you know, they’re walking and riding bikes, sprinting and flipping about, and that’s the issue,’ he explained.
The Ohio native also discussed his daughter, Reonna Paul, a college junior, and indicated that his parenting style will be different this time around.
‘I was a very young father, but now I’m a different age, at a different point in my life, in a new situation.’ ‘I’m looking forward to becoming an elder father.’
Despite dating a superstar like Adele, 34, the Klutch Sports Group owner admitted that his children do not regard him as a “cool parent.”
‘My kids never tell me I’m a cool dad,’ says one of them. I’m proud of the fact that their friends believe I’m a cool parent. My kids, on the other hand, never say to me, “Dad, you’re cool.” They don’t express their affection in that way, but I know it’s there.’
The kids love their freedom, according to LeBron James’ agency, because they ‘certainly don’t want to hang with dad.’
Adele already has a nine-year-old son, Angelo James, with her ex-husband Simon Konecki. In 2021, the singer divorced the 48-year-old British charity entrepreneur.
The actress has already stated that she wants to have another child with Rich.
‘I want a baby next year,’ she said on The Graham Norton Show in February 2022 when asked about her family plans. I’ve already made plans for next year! I’ve made preparations. Imagine having to cancel my gigs because I’m expecting a child.’
‘It takes a long time for me to recharge, and I’d like to have more children — I’m only now catching up on my sleep from nine years ago when I had my son,’ she continued.
The couple, who have been dating for a year, have plenty of room to start a family, having recently purchased a $58 million love nest in Beverly Hills that was previously owned by Sylvester Stallone.
In May, the actress shared a photo of the two holding the keys to their eight-bedroom, 12-bathroom mammoth house on Instagram.
Despite the fact that they have just been seeing each other since last summer, they originally met at a friend’s birthday party several years ago. They would reunite in June 2021, when they resumed dating officially.
