The couple, who met in 2011, are parents to four-year-old son Angelo.

Adele also gushed over her idol Beyonce, who she moved to tears with an emotional acceptance speech.

She paid tribute to the Crazy in Love singer for her album Lemonade, which was also nominated in the category. 

“I can't possibly accept this award,” she said.

“I'm very humble and I'm grateful and gracious but my artist of my life is Beyonce, and the Lemonade album was just so monumental – Beyonce, it was so monumental – and so well thought out and so beautiful and soul-bearing.

“We all got to see another side to you that you don't always get to see. We appreciate that.

“All us artists here, we f****** adore you.”

She continued: “The way you make me and my friends feel. The way you make my black friends feel is empowering. You make them stand up for themselves and I love you and I always have.”

The Hello singer also broke her award in half to share with her idol.

Adele also performed at the ceremony to pay tribute to the late George Michael.

But she stopped during the chorus of Michael’s 1996 song Fastlove over technical issues.

“I know it’s live TV I’m sorry, I need to start again,” she said. “I f***** it up.”

She continued: “I’m sorry for swearing and I’m sorry for starting again, can we please start it again?

“I’m sorry, I can’t mess this up for him. I’m sorry, I can’t.”
