Happiness is in the air for Adele and Rich Paul.

In the midst of marriage rumors between the superstar musician, 35, and the sports agent, 41, sources claim Adele is "ecstatically happy" with Paul and looking toward their future — which might already be set in stone.

The "Easy on Me" singer led fans to speculate on her marriage status after referring to Paul as her "husband" during one of her Las Vegas residency shows in September. She also reportedly confirmed the marriage at Alan Carr's Los Angeles comedy show earlier this month, according to two audience members, who shared the details with the anonymous celebrity gossip account Deuxmoi.

"She is ecstatically happy with Rich and has never been more buoyant, inspired and secure," a source tells PEOPLE in this week's issue of Adele and Paul, who've been romantically linked since July 2021. "We all want to be as happy as Adele."

Recently, Adele's expressed interest in expanding her family. During a residency performance last month, she stopped mid-song after spotting the doctor who delivered Angelo in the crowd and greeted him. "I'm desperate for another baby, Colin," she told him, per a video. "Bloody hell."

According to the source, "She is more than eager to have another child."
