Adele opens up about missing her son during divorce

“Not seeing your child every single day wasn’t really a plan that I had when I became a mum.”

Adele has opened up about the pain of not seeing her son everyday throughout her divorce.

On her CBS special, One Night Only: Adele, the singer opened up about what has been the lowest point in her life.

She revealed the true meaning of her song Hold On after Oprah read out some of the heart-breaking lyrics including: “Right now I truly hate being me.”

“My friends always would say, ‘Hold on’ when I would feel like the lyrics in the verse,” she told Oprah.

“But it was just exhausting trying to keep going with it. It’s a process. You know, the process of a divorce, the process of being a single parent.

“The process of not seeing your child every single day wasn’t really a plan that I had when I became a mum.

“The process of arriving for yourself every day, turning up for yourself every single day and still running a home, running a business.”

She added that her feet hurt from “walking through all of that concrete”.

Adele struggled with her divorce from Simon Konecki, who she shares her nine-year-old son Angelo with.

It comes as the 33-year-old recently admitted she “devastated and embarrassed” when the news about her marriage breaking down became public knowledge.

Adele is now dating sports agent Rich Paul who she met at a friend’s party. The two made things official earlier this year.

The two-hour special, which features an intimate open-air gig in LA, airs on CBS on Sunday night.

It is not yet known when it will be released in the UK and Ireland, but Meghan and Harry’s CBS special with Oprah was made available the next day and this is expected to follow suite.
