After several months offline, Adele returned to social media to celebrate her 32nd birthday.

On Tuesday, the “Someone Like You” shared a new photo to Instagram with a message to her legions of fans, thanking them for their kind birthday wishes.

In the photo which was reportedly taken during an at-home birthday celebration, the Grammy-winning singer is seen standing in the centre of a large floral installation. The star wore a black balloon-sleeved organza mini dress by Elzinga ($1,120 CAD), black heels and gold rings on her fingers while keeping her shoulder length blonde-hair down, with a dramatic side part.

“Thank you for the birthday love. I hope you’re all staying safe and sane during this crazy time,” Adele wrote.

The private star who is rumoured to be releasing a new album this year, took the opportunity to thank healthcare workers for their efforts during the novel coronavirus pandemic.

“I’d like to thank all of our first responders and essential workers who are keeping us safe while risking their lives!” she added. “You are truly our angels ...”

The post garnered millions of likes from Adele’s more than 34 million followers and thousands of likes from fans praising the singer for her “stunning” birthday look.

“She’s drop dead gorgeous,” one fan commented. “How does she look this good? How?”
