Adele has recently made some remarkable changes to her body, however it wasn’t driven by a desire to be slimmer.
The 31-year-old ‘Hello’ singer was inspired to make a change in order to be a better mother to her seven-year-old son Angelo, who she shares with ex-husband Simon Konecki.
“It’s easy to just focus on her physical transformation, but this is really about something bigger,” an insider told People. “She got to the point where she didn’t feel great. She knew she had to change something, because she wants to be the healthiest mom possible.”
The source added: “Her whole focus during the weight loss journey has really how been all about how she can be healthier and how can she treat her body better.
“It was never about losing weight. Her weight loss happened because she has cut down drinking and is eating more real food. But she now loves her physical transformation too. She is more confident, dresses differently and she just seems happier overall.”
A fan recently ran into Adele while she was on holiday in Anguilla with Harry Styles and James Corden, and recalled a conversation where she revealed how much weight she’s lost.
“At first we barely even recognised her because she lost so much weight,” 19-year-old fan Lexi Larson told People on January 9. “She told us she lost something like 100 lbs (45kg), and that it’s such a crazy positive experience.”
The Grammy Award-winning singer posted some black-and white Christmas snaps to Instagram on December 24, and blew fans away with her body transformation.
Adele can be pictured posing playfully alongside The Grinch and Santa Claus in the two photographs, along with caption: “We both tried to ruin Christmas but then both our hearts grew! Thank you for coming to my party and making us feel like kids Grinch.”
Adele announced in April 2019 that she and charity entrepreneur Konecki were separating after three years of marriage.
The exes started dating in 2011 and welcomed Angelo in 2012.
