Adele Talks Postpartum Depression: "Like I’d Made the Worst Decision Of My Life"

The Brit singing sensation has a four-year-old son, Angelo.

Despite her massive fame, Adele knows family comes first.

The singer tells the latest issue of Vanity Fair that although she loves performing for her millions of fans, if it ever negativelyaffected her relationship with boyfriend Simon Konecki or with her 4-year-old son, Angelo, she’d stop.

“All of my relationships are more important to me than any tour I’ll ever do,” Adele, 28, says. “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— 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.”

Adele has been dating Simon, a 42-year-old businessman, for five years.

"I have no desire to be with anyone in show business because we all have egos,” she says of her relationship with Angelo. “He’s not threatened by any stage of my life that I’m going for, and that’s an amazing thing. It’s the most serious relationship I’ve ever been in.” All the men before Simon—as you can tell by her songs— “were so insecure about themselves,” she says. “They couldn’t handle it at all.” Simon being older helped, Adele says. “Simon is already who he is,” she adds. “I’m still becoming who I’m going to be. He’s confident. He’s perfect.” She also opened up about suffering from postpartum depression following Angelo’s birth. “I had really bad postpartum depression after I had my son, and it frightened me…My knowledge of postpartum — or post-natal, as we call it in England — is that you don’t want to be with your child; you’re worried you might hurt your child; you’re worried you weren’t doing a good job,” she says. “But I was obsessed with my child. I felt very inadequate. I felt like I’d made the worst decision of my life.”
