Adele (Adele Laurie Blue Adkins) needs no further info, with her debut album “19” rating a whole of eight platinum awards in the UK and three across the pond in the USA.
Today, however, we won’t be celebrating her golden vocal cords but rather her healthy approach to mommyhood and the limelight. Adele is a single mum to five year old Angelo Adkins, after divorcing financier Simon Konecki in 2019.
In April 2012 the singer appeared in public with a delicate chain around her neck. The pendant on the chain made out the word “Angelo”. Around that time, Adele shared the news for the first time – she was expecting her first baby.
In October sources reported that Adele gave birth to a baby boy. His name was kept a secret for a long time, and the singer didn’t share much further information about the newborn.
In 2014 in her intimate note to Elton John, the star finally disclosed the name of her child – Angelo. That very year the boy was pictured by paparazzi during his first walk at the kids’ playground. After that his famous mother started a court process against Corbis Images UK agency, which she won.
Angelo serves as an inspiration for a few of Adele’s songs. She even used his voice as a soundtrack for the song “Sweetest Devotion”.
In the day and age of “sharenting”, Adele is adamant about Angelo’s mental wellbeing and privacy above all and hence makes it to our ”mum crush of the week” list.
