James Corden has officially made gift-giving history, thanks to the story that came out surrounding his birthday present to Adele. And let's just say that he is one seriously devoted friend.

It all started when Adele appeared on Vogue's viral 73 questions segment, where she gave Joe Sabia a behind-the-scenes look at her Los Angeles humble abode. Siba asked the Easy On Me artist what her most prized possession was and viewers got the honest - and hilarious - truth. The singer came back with a framed piece of paper with Céline Dion's gum stuck to it. Adele went on to explain that this was the most precious item in her home and that it was a thoughtful gift from the one and only James Corden.

Safe to say that fans of Corden and Adele were desperate to know more, so the host of The Late Late Show with James Corden took the time to confirm this bizarre story on his Thursday night episode. "That is a true story," the Cinderella star explained. "The weekend before we had shot [Carpool Karaoke], we went on a little weekend away to Mexico [with] my family, [Adele], [and] her son." And that's how the wheels started rolling. "The following Friday I was shooting Carpool Karaoke with Céline Dion and Adele just loves Céline Dion," the comedian explained. And as luck had it, Dion had some gum to dispose of prior to filming, and James knew just what to do.

"I said, 'I got it, I got it, I got it.'... And I was like, ' I need to keep this super safe!'" And flash forward to May 5th, James had the perfect gift for his talented pal. "And then I gave it to [Adele] for her birthday. She's a difficult person to buy for," Corden laughed. "A candle doesn't cut it!" And as if the story couldn't get any better, Céline's team even took to Twitter to comment on the "hilarious" story.
