During one of the biggest nights of her career, Adele shared some of her struggle to find herself as a mom.
Adele hasn't always been too open about her personal life, but at Sunday night's Grammy Awards, where the singer and mom was a big winner, she wasn't afraid to share about her journey coming "full-circle" as a performer and parent.
The star won album, record, and song of the year, but it was during her acceptance speech for album of the year that she got personal.
"Five years ago, when I was last here, I also was pregnant, and I didn't know," Adele said. "And I was awarded that shortly after — I found out shortly after, which was the biggest blessing of my life. And in my pregnancy and through becoming a mother, I lost a lot of myself. And I've struggled, and I still do struggle being a mom. It's really hard."

"But tonight winning this kind of feels full-circle, and like a bit of me has come back to myself," she continued, going on to suggest it was Beyoncé who should have won her award instead—talk about boss mamas supporting each other's work!
