The star is said to have quietly agreed to marry Simon Konecki, the father of her son Angelo.
The engagement would round off an incredible 2016 for the star, who broke sales records and signed a £90million record deal. The 28-year-old Someone Like You singer has been dating charity boss Simon for five years .
A friend said: “They’ve decided it’s the right time to think about making that step.
“They won’t make a big song and dance about it, that’s not the way either of them are, and you won’t see Adele walking around with a huge diamond on her finger flaunting it.
"But they’re ready to take the next step and both very excited about the prospect.
“Adele has had an amazing time on tour and is enjoying performing to fans - but she’s looking forward to spending some quiet time at home with her family after 10 months on the road.”
