After the fan asked, “Can you try?” the songstress jokingly replied, “No, I don’t want to try. I’m with Rich. You’re crazy, leave me alone.”

Adele and the sports agent, whose client list includes LeBron James  and Anthony Davis were first spotted publicly on July 17, 2021, when they sat courtside together during Game 5 of the NBA Finals.

A source confirmed to PEOPLE at the time that Adele had been dating Paul for "a few months." The singer also opened to Vogue about attending the match as a couple for her November 2021 cover story.

"I didn't mean to go public with it. I just wanted to go to the game," she said. "I just love being around him. I just love it."

Adele added about Paul, "He's great. He's so f—ing funny. He's so smart, you know."

Reps for Adele and Paul didn't respond to PEOPLE's request for comment.

Last month, the "I Drink Wine" singer revealed that she'd like to have another baby, according to fan videos posted on TikTok.

"I really want to be a mom again soon," Adele shared after a pregnant audience member asked her for help choosing a name for her future daughter.

The singer— who has a 10-year-old son, Angelo, with her ex-husband Simon Konecki — said she's already preparing for a new bundle of joy by saving name ideas on her phone. "I've actually been writing lists," she continued. "So every time I see a name that I like, I write it down in my phone."

Adele has spoken in the past about her desire to give Angelo a sibling. "I definitely want more kids. I’m a homemaker and I’m a matriarch, and a stable life helps me with my music," she told Elle in 2022.

However, she explained that the timing wasn't quite right yet. "Right now, all I got in my brain is Vegas. I want to f---ing nail it," she said.

During a June 2022 interview with E! News, her beau Paul discussed the possibility of having "more kids" — he's already a father to three children — and how the experience might be different now that he's a bit older.

"As a young dad, growing a business, it was pretty tough," he told the outlet, referring to his sports agency. "But now looking as an older dad and my kids being much older, and obviously, if I was to have more kids... I'm looking forward to being a different dad, a more patient dad."
