AceShowbiz - Adele could be planning to extend her family with Rich Paul. The sports agent, who has been dating the Grammy Award-winning artist since last summer, is hinting at having "more kids" as he reflects on his experience as a young dad.
Rich, who is a father of three from his previous relationship(s), talks about his role as a father to his kids and how he sees himself parenting in the future during an interview with E! News. "As a young dad, growing a business, it was pretty tough," he admits, while promoting his partnership with Old Spice's new School of Swagger program.
"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," he explains. "Next thing, you know, they're walking and they're riding the bike, running and flipping around and that's the problem."
But a lot has changed since he welcomed his three kids. "But now looking as an older dad, if I was to have more kids, I'm looking forward to being a different dad," the 40-year-old says, vowing that next time around, he wants to be "a more patient dad."
Further reflecting on his past, he shares, "You know, I have a daughter that's a junior in college so 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."
In the meantime, Rich is looking to help other kids with the Old Spice School of Swagger program. Launched in partnership with Walmart, it marks a 10-year commitment to help increase high school graduation rates by 10 percent.
"It's a mentorship program," the manager of LeBron James explains. "I think the importance of being a mentor is key. Something that I really like to do. I love to mentor and also lean in and embrace being mentored as well."
He continues elaborating, "We're trying to help young men and women build that confidence and have a foundation of confidence to go out and lead the world. And I think that what Old Spice is doing with the School of Swagger and for me to be a part of the first ever graduating class of the School of Swagger is really cool."
Adele herself is a mother to 9-year-old son Angelo, whom she shares with ex-husband Simon Konecki. The 34-year-old star has expressed her desire to have more kids, saying in February of this year about taking a break in between albums, "I will be disappearing in terms of my music, but you might see a glimpse of me now and then and I won't be in complete hiding. 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."
