Adele fans suspect singer is secretly married to Rich Paul after detail in recent photo

There's speculation that Adele has secretly married Rich Paul after eagle-eyed fans noticed a personalised game that hinted at their possible nuptials in a recent photo.

The singer, 34, and the sports agent, 40, have been in a relationship since last year and it was confirmed just a few months ago that the couple have since moved in together.

And there is now speculation that Adele - who shares son Angelo, nine, with her ex-husband Simon Konecki, 48 - may have secretly tied the knot to her current partner Rich.

It came in response to an Instagram post which celebrated her winning an Emmy Award for her CBS special One Night Only, for Outstanding Variety Special (Pre-Recorded).

Adele shared photos of the award, including one of it sat on top of some books on a coffee table, seemingly in the living room of the home that she shares with her partner Rich.

Some fans however spotted that there appeared to be a personalised game - which had The Paul's written on it - alongside the award on the table in the recent photo.

The game box - believed to holding either dominoes, mahjong tiles or a Rummikub set - has been taken as a potential sign that the couple may have tied the knot.

Fans are wondering if it's an indication that they are now known as the Paul family, with several of her followers taking to the comments section of the post to speculate.

After a fan asked if she was married, others expressed similar curiosity after noticing the game. "I spotted that too," wrote one fan. Another said: "Like we don't all see it".

Among those who seemed excited by the prospect was one follower who wrote in the comments: "She gave us two announcements in one post. I love her energy".

Others however questioned the punctuation of the game, especially if they are hitched. "[It] wouldn't be Paul's if they were married. It would be Pauls," wrote one follower.

Another responded to the speculation by writing: "I can't tell if I am more excited about it or upset at the bad punctuation". A third said the punctuation on the game was "killing" them.

If Adele and Rich are married, the family could be known as the Pauls, and a board game that belonged to them collectively would be the Pauls' game.

The Easy on Me singer however addressed speculation that she is either engaged or married during an interview with Elle, that was published just last month, in which she denied both.

The Mirror approached Adele and Rich's reps.
