During Adele’s “Weekends with Adele” residency performance at The Colosseum at Caesars Palace on August 13, a heartwarming and tear-inducing moment unfolded when the singer interacted with a couple in the audience. Chris and Shantelle Dare held up a sign that read, “Adele will you do our gender reveal?” This spontaneous interaction was captured on video and became a must-watch moment for fans.
As soon as Adele noticed the sign, she invited the couple to the front of the stage. In a clip shared on the couple’s social media, Adele exclaimed, “No one’s really allowed signs in here. I’m just obsessed that you got one in.” The expectant mother, Shantelle, revealed that she was already 18 weeks into her pregnancy and explained that she and her husband had received a sealed envelope containing their baby’s gender information at the 12-week mark, intending to have Adele reveal the news.
With excitement building, Adele opened the envelope without delay. The announcement rang out moments later: “Shantelle and Chris are having a baby boy!” The elated parents and the entire audience erupted in joy, prompting the 35-year-old singer to well up with tears. As Adele embraced the couple, she congratulated them while holding back her emotions. “That was amazing,” she managed to say through teary eyes. “I’m so happy for you! That’s so emotional, oh my God.”
In a lighthearted moment, Adele playfully asked Shantelle, “If and when I get pregnant, will you do my gender reveal?”
On social media, the couple expressed their gratitude towards Adele, captioning the gender reveal video on Instagram with words of appreciation: “@adele you are amazing, and we will remember this night for the rest of our lives!” This heartwarming and spontaneous exchange showcased not only Adele’s talent but also her genuine connection with her fans.
