ADELE is reportedly on the verge of getting engaged.

Boyfriend Simon Konecki, 37, is said to be planning to propose to the record-breaking singer during her birthday in May.

"Simon is so smitten that he's also talked about popping the question as soon as her birthday in May. It falls over the bank holiday weekend so he may plan a trip away and do it then," a source said. "He knows she's 'the one' and Simon's pals have never seen him so happy. He's like a different person."

Adele is said to have described Konecki as her "soulmate" at the Grammys earlier this month and said she was "living a dream". "She just kept gushing about this being the best relationship she had ever been in. She even said her next album would be about falling in love and hopefully settling down after all the heartbreak," an insider added. "She joked that it would probably be a flop as everyone would stick their fingers down their throat, but she can't wait to write new tracks about how happy and loved-up she is feeling right now."       –DS
