Just four months ago, though, the British songbird was singing a different tune. "I don't think I can have another child," Adele told fans at St. Paul's Xcel Energy Center. "I mean, I can. But I don't think I want two." But when she performed at Nashville's Bridgestone Arena in October, the musician said, "My son is about to turn 4 very, very soon.

It's like, 'Baby, baby, baby. Need a baby, need a baby.'
"I'm not pregnant," Adele added. "I won't get pregnant until the end of the tour."
"My band and my crew you made the whole thing turn," said Adele, who resumes her tour in Australia and New Zealand in March 2017. "And my beautiful family made it easy for me to do."

"My friends who didn't have kids would get annoyed with me, whereas I knew I could just sit there and chat absolute mush with my friends who had children, and we wouldn't judge each other. One day I said to a friend, 'I f--kin' hate this,' and she just burst into tears and said, 'I f--kin' hate this, too.' And it was done," she said. "It lifted."
