The singer is smitten with her new man

Simon Konecki is believed to be preparing to ask girlfriend Adele to marry him.

Simon, 37, is reported to be planning to get down on one knee on Adele‘s 24th birthday in May.

‘It falls over the bank holiday weekend so he may plan a trip away and do it then,’ says a friend.

‘He knows she’s the one and Simon‘s pals have never seen him so happy. He’s like a different person.’

Adele, 23, joked last week that she was taking 4 or 5 years off from music to concentrate on her relationship with entrepreneur Simon.

But despite admitting that she was more likely to wangle only a 5-day holiday, the singer is still keen to settle down and start a family with her ‘wonderful’ man.

‘The couple have even spoken about having kids and are so serious,’ the pal tells the Daily Star Sunday.

‘They’ve spoken about their future plans, how they want to buy a huge house in the country and have 2 or 3 kids.’
