In a touching gesture, internationally acclaimed singer-songwriter Adele recently participated in a unique fan experience. During her “Weekends with Adele” stint at The Colosseum at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas, she assisted in unveiling the gender of an expecting couple’s baby, making the concert even more memorable for them.
The event unfolded when fans, Chris Dare and his wife Shantelle Lord, attended one of Adele’s concerts. With hopeful hearts, they displayed a sign asking, “Adele will you do our gender reveal?” This request caught the attention of various outlets, including People magazine.
Much to their delight, Adele invited the couple from New York to the front. In an endearing exchange captured in a video that Chris later shared on Instagram and TikTok, Adele mentioned her surprise at their sign. “Signs aren’t typically allowed. Yet, I’m amazed you managed to bring one,” she said with a smile.
Shantelle then shared a sweet tidbit with Adele, the beloved voice behind ‘Love in the Dark’. Although she was 18 weeks into her pregnancy, the couple had been holding onto a sealed envelope since the 12th week. This envelope held the secret of their baby’s gender. Their wish was for Adele to share the news with them.
The audience watched with bated breath as Adele, sitting gracefully at the stage’s edge, opened the envelope. With palpable excitement in the air, she joyfully announced, “Shantelle and Chris are expecting a baby boy!”
Following the big reveal, Adele, deeply moved by the moment, embraced the couple. “That was truly remarkable,” she said, her eyes moist with emotion. Overwhelmed, she turned to the audience, saying, “My apologies for getting teary-eyed. Such moments are so heartfelt.”
In a playful twist, Adele turned to Shantelle, jesting, “When I decide to have another baby, will you return the favor for my gender reveal?” This elicited laughter from the thrilled audience.
Chris commemorated the extraordinary night with a post on his Instagram. He captioned the moment, “Adele hosted our gender reveal. Thank you, @adele! This memory will stay with us forever!“
