It's no secret that Adele has had quite an amazing year, and she's closing out 2016 with an amazing interview as Time's latest cover star. In the honest coverage, the Hello singer reveals what it's was like breaking so many records internationally and what it's like to be a mother to 3-year-old Angelo James Konecki.
The success of her new album, 25, came as quite a surprise for the crooner—especially considering all of the records it surpassed in the United States. Adele joked to Time, "It’s a bit ridiculous. I’m not even from America. Maybe they think I’m related to the Queen. Americans are obsessed with the royal family.”
An even bigger accomplishment for the star than selling over 3 million albums in one week was bringing her firstborn child into the world. "He makes me so proud of myself, and he makes me like myself so much. And I’ve always liked myself. I’ve never not liked myself. I don’t have hang-ups like that," she said. "But I’m so proud of myself that I made him in my belly. Cooked him in my belly and then he came out of me! This human who’s suddenly walking around and doing his own thing. I can’t wait to know who his best friends are going to be, who his girlfriend or his boyfriend is going to be or what movies he likes … Whatever my kid wants to do or be I will always support him no matter what.”
