People are curious about Konecki thanks to Adele's deeply personal album soon to release, including the single "Easy On Me," which she released to the public in late October. The musician has said that she wrote the song in part to explain to her son why she and his father divorced.

Despite the marriage ending, Adele spoke with love and appreciation for Konecki during her CBS special interview with Oprah Winfrey. She spoke about the stability he had provided for her and said, "I think Simon probably saved my life." She wondered if she might have struggled more with her rapid rise to fame were it not for Konecki.
