All the Reasons Why We Have a Mom-Crush On Adele

For all the times the superstar says pretty much exactly what we we're thinking (but are too scared to say out loud).

We ugly-cried while listening to “Hello.” We cracked up during her stint on The Late Late Show’s Carpool Karaoke segment and Facebook “loved” the photos of her 3-year-old son dressed as Princess Anna from Frozen. But the real reason we love Adele? She sums up #momlife with the same brutal but poetic honesty we adore in her music:

On Her Son, Angelo:

“I’m so proud of myself that I made him in my belly … I can’t wait to know who his best friends are going to be, who his girlfriend or his boyfriend is going to be, or what movies he likes,” she told Time. “Whatever my kid wants to do or be I will always support him no matter what.”

On a Mother’s Love:

“The love I feel for him is so poignant and overwhelming. It takes my breath away that I am able to love someone that much, and that’s what I’ve been looking for my whole life,” she said during an NPR interview. “I have it in my partner, and I’m lucky for that. But I’m going to be a mom forever, no matter what happens, and that love is always going to be there.”

On Being a Mom:

“I’ve been to every f*cking park, every shop, every supermarket you could ever imagine,” she said to Rolling Stone.

On Beauty:

“I like looking nice, but I always put comfort over fashion,” she told the Daily Mail. “Be happy and healthy. I’ve never had a problem with the way I look. I’d rather have lunch with my friends than go to a gym.”

On Pregnancy Hormones:

“I’m not telling a joke. I actually have a beard, but I’m proud of it. I call it Larry,” she told the crowd at a Glasgow concert.

On Parenting:

“It’s f*cking hard. I thought it would be easy. ‘Everyone f*cking does it, how hard can it be?’ Ohhhhh … I had no idea,” she explained to i-D magazine. “It is hard but it’s phenomenal. It’s the greatest thing I ever did.”

On the Pressure to Breastfeed:

“It’s f*cking ridiculous, and all those people who put pressure on us, you can go f*ck yourselves, all right?,” she told the audience at a concert at London’s O2 arena, “Because it’s hard. Some of us can’t do it.”
