The kind words come after an audience member shared: ‘I was at Alan Carr’s comedy show in LA tonight and Adele was in the audience. Alan asked the crowd if anyone got married recently and Adele shouted “I did”.’
Another added of the ‘small and intimate show: ‘When he asked if anyone got married recently she yelled “I did”. Super cute all around and was super sweet but dipped right before it ended.’
They added: ‘Adele was sitting right behind me with a friend having the best time. Her security only came in to bring her snacks.
‘She didn’t care if people knew she was there. She was heckling him – they’re best friends.’
MailOnline has contacted Adele’s representatives for comment.
Last month, Rich, 41, addressed marriage rumours as he told how he and Adele, 35, have ‘helped each other’ during their two-year relationship.
Appearing on CBS Mornings, Rich said of his partner: ‘She’s been great, I think she would agree that we definitely helped each other.
‘I’m in a good space, we’re in a good space. Happy. She’s superb. She’s been great for me. We’ve been great for each other.’
Rich was then asked by CBS host Gayle King about the rumours he and Adele have tied the knot.
The journalist asked whether she should refer to Adele as ‘Mrs. Paul’ the next time she speaks to her.
Richard played coy, saying: ‘You can say whatever you want,’ before adding he is not the ‘type of person to put [his] personal life. It’s not for the media.’
Rumour has it: Adele is said to have confirmed the union at her best friend Alan Carr’s comedy show in Los Angeles (Alan pictured during Adele’s ITV special in 2021)

Adele called Rich her husband during her Las Vegas concert in September, sparking speculation that the two have tied the knot.
A woman in the audience screamed out ‘Will you marry me,’ to the Rumor Has It singer during the show, as seen in a TikTok clip.
‘You can’t marry me. I’m straight, my love, and my husband’s here tonight,’ Adele replied.
The fan responded, ‘Can you try?’ and Adele clapped back, ‘No, I don’t want to try. I’m with Rich. You’re crazy, leave me alone.’
The couple first went public with their relationship in July 2021 when they were seated courtside together at an NBA game.
The Grammy winner has been wearing a pear-shaped diamond ring on her left ring finger for about a year.
In the past when asked about it, she commented that it wasn’t an engagement ring, she simply likes high end jewelry.
She met LeBron James‘ agent on the dance floor at a mutual friend’s birthday party.
She has frequently praised her boyfriend and called their relationship the easiest one she’d ever been in during an interview with Rolling Stone.
‘He’s just hilarious. Oh, he’s so funny, he’s hilarious, yeah. And very smart. You know, he’s very, very smart. It’s quite incredible watching him do what he does,’ she said about Paul on CBS in 2021.
‘It’s just timing. But it’d be interesting to see what my reaction is like in general to anything that hurts me now that I feel so secure in myself, and I’m talking outside of romance as well.’
In another chat with ELLE she gushed: ‘I’ve never been in love like this. I’m obsessed with him. I definitely want more kids.
‘I’m a homemaker and I’m a matriarch, and a stable life helps me with my music,’ she added. ‘But right now, all I got in my brain is Vegas. I wanna f**king nail it.’
Adele has a ten-year-old son, Angelo, from her three year marriage to Simon Konecki and told the Vegas audience that she was ‘ready to be a mum again soon.’
‘I really want to be a mom again soon,’ Adele said during a sweet exchange with someone in the audience.
Adele and Simon split in 2019 and she previously revealed she had had therapy five times per day when they divorced.
Meanwhile Adele and comedian Alan have long been friends and it’s only fitting that she confirmed her wedding at his gig, having served as the officiant at Alan’s own wedding to Paul Drayton.
Alan dated Paul for eight years before his partner popped the question in September 2016 during a scenic holiday in Indonesia, where homosexuality is illegal.
In April 2018, Someone Like You songstress Adele broke the news about the presenter’s secret wedding by sharing a snap of herself wearing priest’s robes.

Detailing the special day, which took place in January that year, Alan revealed: ‘We did it in her back garden. How nice was that? She paid for it all. She is the loveliest person ever.
‘The most magical day ever. As a treat she took us to see Celine Dion in Caesars Palace. She’s absolutely lovely. She sang.’
Despite giving some insight into the nuptials, the Chatty Man star refused to share what song the musician performed during the ceremony.
‘But I’m not telling you what the song is because that’s private,’ he announced on The Jonathan Ross Show. ‘I’ve got to have something, I could have sold this to OK! magazine. It’s got swear words in it’, he joked.
Sadly, Alan and Paul’s relationship wasn’t meant to be, with the comic, 46, and his Party Planner husband announcing their separation in January 2022, after 13 years together and three years of marriage.
