No sad songs here! Adele revealed that she and her ex-husband, Simon Konecki, are on great terms, despite getting divorced in 2019.

"It was never really tricky because we're such good friends — and over my dead body is my kid having a messy divorce in his life," she said in a new interview. "There are no issues and there were no issues, so I guess it was easier to make sure that didn't happen, but I was blessed with them and him. Simon's just the best, and I definitely approached it all with grace and that really paid off."

"It just wasn’t … It just wasn’t right for me anymore," she told Vogue. "I didn’t want to end up like a lot of other people I knew. I wasn’t miserable miserable, but I would have been miserable had I not put myself first. After going through a divorce, my requirements are sky-high. There’s a very big pair of shoes to fill."

The duo just attended Kate Bock and Kevin Love's nuptials, where they looked like they had a great time. As for if Adele would like to expand her brood one day, she candidly said, "I definitely would like a couple of more kids!"

Fortunately, it looks like Paul is open to the idea.

"As a young dad, growing a business, it was pretty tough," he said. "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."
