Hello… she’s married! After months of speculation, Adele confirmed her marriage to longtime partner Simon Konecki while accepting the Album of the Year Award at the 2017 Grammys on Sunday, February 13.

The singer, 28, spent the majority of her time on-stage praising fellow nominee Beyonce, who was up against the 25 hitmaker for her critically-acclaimed album, Lemonade.

“Grammys, I appreciate it, the Academy, I love you,” she said through tears. “My manager, my husband and my son – you’re the only reason I do it.”

Konecki, 42, and Adele were first introduced to each other by Ed Sheeran (yes, it’s true!) and they dated for five years before secretly marrying. The longtime partners, who share a 4-year-old son named Angelo, sparked marriage rumors over the holidays after they were both photographed with suspicious gold bands on their ring fingers.

In a no-holds-barred interview with Vanity Fair last October, Adele stressed the importance of her family over her flourishing career.

“All of my relationships are more important to me than any tour I’ll ever do,” she said at the time. “If my relationship with Simon or my relationship with Angelo started to flounder a bit now, I would pull out of my tour. My life is more important to me than anything I’m doing because how the f—k am I supposed to write a record if I don’t have a life? If I don’t have a real life, then it’s game over anyway.”
