As anyone who’s incubated a human life in their uterus can attest, being pregnant is no walk in the park.
But it turns out it’s not just us mortals who suffer from pregnancy-related discomfort.
At a performance in Glasgow on Friday, singer Adele revealed she grew facial hair while pregnant with her son.
“When I got pregnant I had so much testosterone in me that I grew a beard,” she joked to the crowd.
“I only cropped it last night. It’s actually true. I’m not telling a joke. I actually have a beard, but I’m proud of it. I call it Larry.”
Far from turning her partner, Simon Konecki, off, Adele says her fuzz has brought them closer together.
“My man’s got a good beard. He trims it sometimes in the summer. I do have a beard myself so I can understand when it gets hot in the summer.”
Sounds like Adele’s son, Angelo James Konecki who is now three years old, is a lucky guy: he’s growing up with excellent parents, and he’s got two impressive sets of facial hair to aspire to.
