Adele’s boyfriend Rich Paul hints at the possibility of having more kids and says he is looking forward to being a ‘different’ and ‘more patient dad’
Adele‘s boyfriend Rich Paul seems ready to blend the couple’s families together and maybe even expand their brood.
The sports agent, 40 – who already has three children from a prior relationship – spoke with E! News on Friday, where he shared his sentiments on potentially becoming a parent once again.
‘As a young dad, growing a business, it was pretty tough. But now looking as an older dad and my kids being much older, and obviously, if I was to have more kids … I’m looking forward to being a different dad, a more patient dad,’ he stated.

Paul revealed the difficulties of being a young dad: ‘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.’
‘Next thing, you know, they’re walking and they’re riding the bike, running and flipping around and that’s the problem,’ he said.
The Ohio native also spoke about his daughter, Reonna Paul, who is a junior in college, and revealed that his approach to parenting would be different this time around

‘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.’
The Klutch Sports Group owner admitted that despite dating a superstar like Adele, 34, his kids don’t think of him as a ‘cool dad.’
‘My kids never tell me I’m a cool dad. Their friends think I’m a cool dad, so I feel good about that. But my kids never really tell me, ‘Dad, you’re cool.’ They don’t show me that love like that, but I know it’s deep down inside.’

Lebron James’ agent went on to state that the kids appreciate their independence as they ‘definitely don’t want to hang with dad.’
Adele is already a mother to son Angelo James, nine, whom she shares with ex-husband Simon Konecki. The singer divorced the British charity entrepreneur, 48, in 2021.
The superstar has previously revealed that she would also like to have another baby with Rich.
She spoke about her family plans on The Graham Norton Show in February 2022, saying: ‘I want a baby next year. I have plans next year! I have plans. Imagine if I have to cancel the shows because I’m having a baby.’

The Easy On Me hitmaker added, ‘It takes me a while to recharge, and I would like to have more children – I only just feel like I’ve caught up with my sleep from nine years ago when I had my son.’
The couple – who have been dating for a year – certainly have the space to expand their family, as they recently purchased a $58million love nest in Beverly Hills, previously owned by Sylvester Stallone.
The star posted a snap of the two holding keys to their eight-bedroom and 12-bathroom mega mansion on her Instagram in May.
While they have only been seeing each other since last summer, the pair actually met for the first time at a friend’s birthday party several years before. They would later reconnect in June 2021, when they began officially dating.
