Adele returned to the Las Vegas stage after a three-month break for her beloved and acclaimed Weekends with Adele residency, and she's gushing over big family news.

The British singer, 36, spoke with the crowd at the concert on May 17, captured on TikTok by a fan, to share a special message for her stepdaughter Reonna.

Reonna is the daughter of Rich Paul, 42, Adele's partner since 2021, who she reportedly secretly tied the knot with in November 2023. Rich is also a dad to Richie and Zane from a previous relationship.

"Make sure you put this video online," Adele told the crowd. "It is my stepdaughter's graduation this weekend, and her name is Reonna and she's graduating from Clark [University] tomorrow in Atlanta."

She sweetly shouted out: "I love you darling, congratulations! She's the first family member that's graduated college. How amazing is that, it's a [expletive] vibe. They're all in Atlanta and they're celebrating her and obviously I'm here with you and I wouldn't be anywhere else." Adele concluded: "But I love you baby, I love you!"

Adele herself is also a mom, sharing son Angelo, 11, with Simon Konecki, her husband from 2018-2021. She began dating the famed sports talent agent soon after and they currently live together as well.

"I love you darling, congratulations! She's the first family member that's graduated college. How amazing is that, it's a [expletive] vibe."

She captioned it: "It's been real CAU… The jewels that I am taking away from this experience are invaluable. This experience has truly been a dream. In the beginning I had no direction of who I would be or where I would wanna go throughout my matriculation here."

Rich had his three kids when he was still in his early 20s, reflecting on being a "young dad" in an interview with E! News while also building his career, saying: "As a young dad, growing a business, it was pretty tough."

"But now looking as an older dad, if I was to have more kids, I'm looking forward to being a different dad," he added. "Oftentimes as you're building a business, you're on the go, you're moving around, the kids grow up fast in a blink of an eye."

At the time, Reonna was still a junior in college, and he continued: "You know, I have a daughter that's a junior in college so I was a very young dad, but now, different age, different time in my life, different position in my life. I'm really looking forward to being an older dad."
