If you are married to a celebrity, you can forgive the viewers if they think they are feeding off the celebrity’s status. You would probably think that the noncelebrity would be lucky to be married to a famous character. While Simon Konecki makes the list of ordinary citizens married to famous people, there is certainly no evidence of problems with self-esteem or lack of confidence in his appearance. Moreover, judging by his career path, he is a celebrity in his own right.
His superstar singer-wife Adele is hot on his heels and often talks about him being her greatest encouragement. She is also grateful that he is not threatened by her immense success.
Biography and Career of Simon Konecki
Konecki was born in New York City on April 17, 1974, the son of his parents, Rosemary and Andrew Konecki. One of the reasons why Simon feels comfortable being married to a wealthy female celebrity is probably because he grew up in a wealthy home. His parents were wealthy and reportedly owned a $1 million home in Boca Raton, Florida. When he was ten years old, he would eventually go to Britain for academic purposes. While his sisters Alexandra and Victoria chose Princess Anne’s Alma mater, Simon Konecki chose Eton College, a prestigious and independent boarding school for boys in Berkshire.
According to various sources, Simon Konecki entered the world of work at the age of 17 and initially worked for the international finance and trading company ICAPS. He continued to refine his skills and climbed the company’s career ladder. When he was 24 years old, he led teams of senior brokers at Lehman Brothers.
Apparently, this life was not for Simon, as he eventually got tired of the routine. He wanted something more out of life, he wanted to make a difference. This led him to give up his lucrative and promising career to start a green business with this friend, Lucas White. Together, Konecki and Lucas founded Life Water, a brand of environmentally friendly bottled water in the UK.
He finally took the plunge into charity and founded Drop4Drop, a non-profit organization dedicated to providing clean water to the world’s poorest people.
Simon Konecki’s Family: His Children, Daughter, Son and Relationship with Adele
Before the famous British singer came on stage, the charity enthusiast was married to a fashion stylist named Clary Fisher. His marriage to her lasted four years – from 2004 to 2008 – and produced a daughter.
Simon Konecki met Adele a few years later. There was a rumor that the two were introduced by their English singer colleague Ed Sheeran – a rumor which he dispelled by tweeting in 2012. It seems that Simon made a good first impression, as the duo soon became a household name. They were first seen together in January 2012, when they went on vacation together in Florida.
In 2012, Adele revealed that they were expecting their first child. On October 19, 2012, she gave birth to a son named Angelo. Three years later, around Christmas 2015, the rumor arose that Simon had asked the question and Adele had said yes. Her wedding came under the same cloud of rumors when the singer was discovered with a gold finger band while shopping a few days after Christmas Day 2016.
Simon Konecki accompanied his wife to the 2017 Grammys, where she won five Grammy Awards. During her acceptance speech for one of the Grammys, she finally confirmed the rumors and introduced Konecki as her husband.

Her name is unknown.
2. Simon and his wife didn’t want to get married at first
Before they got married, Adele let it be known in an interview with Vanity Fair in 2016 that she and Simon had no intention of getting married. For her, it was primarily about being good parents to her son while continuing to love each other. By the end of that year, however, they were married.

The wife of the former estate agent quickly admits that the age difference between her and Simon contributes to the success of their relationship. She says he feels comfortable in his own skin because of the many years of experience he has before her. Simon does not feel threatened by his wife’s ambitions and supports her in her efforts to fulfill her dreams and grow as a person, for which the singer is openly grateful.
