Adele opened up her musical career, personal life and new album “30,” in an exclusive interview with Oprah Winfrey earlier this week.

The candid, wide-ranging sit-down — which took place in the rose garden where Winfrey also interviewed Prince Harry and Meghan Markle — was part of CBS’ special, “Adele One Night Only,” which aired on Sunday night.

Here’s what we learned from the conversation:

“30” was written in “real time”: When Winfrey noted that “30” sounded like Adele had “literally opened up your soul” and “pain was almost like a muse for you,” Adele revealed that the album was written in real time. “Everything was happening in real time. I was writing my album, you know, while I was going through everything,” she said.

After Winfrey reminded her of the success of her single “Hello” — the lead single off her third studio album, “25” — Adele stated that her music “definitely channels from somewhere else” during the creative process. Adele added, “I don’t know how I access it. It’s wild cause I don’t think I’m that deep in real life.”

She wasn’t afraid to share private details of her personal life on the album because “nothing is as scary as what I’ve been through over the last two/three years behind closed doors.”

The album is dedicated to her son: Adele said she struggled to explain to Angelo that she was no longer in love with his father. “There were so many answers I couldn’t give him because there aren’t any,” she said.

She told Winfrey that she prepared for the reality that he will be “livid” with her as an adult for dismantling his life for her happiness and “30,” which is dedicated to him, is her way of showing him “who I am.”

“The whole album is not about him, it’s about me and I just wanted for him to hear me talking madly deeply about who I am and how I feel,” she said.

“I don’t know if I’ll ever be able to have that conversation with him in real life, so therefore he can go and listen to it.”

Asked she would like to grow her family, she said, “I’m definitely open to it. I would like more children. It wouldn’t be the end of the world if I don’t have them, cause I have Angelo.”
