Adele is notoriously private — her marriage and subsequent split were largely kept away from the public eye, and we rarely catch glimpses of the singer’s six-year-old son, Angelo. But recent reports shed light on how Adele is weathering the aftermath of divorce…and indicate that she’s faring incredibly well as a single mom. In fact, one source even describes Adele’s current state as “perky as hell.”
While we can’t imagine her split from ex Simon Konecki was easy, Adele is reportedly relying on music and motherhood to keep her spirits high.
“She talks about last year as a very difficult year, and she’s said in the past that creating new music is almost like therapy. You can tell that she is ready to share with her fans…She is so busy, but her life is better-rounded than it was before,” says an industry source, according to PEOPLE. “She is very fulfilled being an artist. New music is still a big deal for her, and she feels alive and happy.”
The source adds that Adele is relishing time with her Angelo as well — the mother/son duo reportedly spent time traveling together and enjoying nature during his time off from school. Adele even shared a rare peak at her family life on Instagram earlier this summer, and it’s easy to see how happy she is from the photos alone.
And as for Adele’s relationship with Konecki? Well, they appear to have a healthy co-parenting dynamic. “Adele loves Los Angeles and lives a great life with her son,” the source adds, according to PEOPLE. “She likes to keep her life private for both her and her son and is able to do that in L.A. She co-parents with Simon, and they seem to get along and spend time together with Angelo as well.”
