Angelo Adkins is the son of the renowned British singer Adele. The artist whose full name is Adele Adkins has released a number of major hit albums and singles. Her prolific career in the music world has earned her a plethora of prestigious accolades, including fifteen Grammy Awards and nine Brit Awards.
Adele shares her son with her ex-husband, Simon Konecki. His parents married for a couple of years before their marriage dissolved into a divorce.
Let’s take a look at many interesting facts that you didn’t know about Adele’s son!
What is Angelo Adkins Age? Mother Adele Suffered a Postpartum Depression
His age is 8. He was born on 19th October 2012, in the United Kingdom. Angelo’s parents used to live in West Sussex at the time of his birth. Keeping the baby’s birth ultra-private, the singer didn’t make any official confirmation for some time.
Furthermore, a spokesperson for Adele told Daily Mail, “we are not releasing a statement at this time.”
Meanwhile, following the birth of Angelo, the ‘Hello’ singer went through postpartum depression. In a conversation with Vanity Fair in 2016, Adele revealed about the phase. She said,
“I had really bad postpartum depression after I had my son, and it frightened me.”
The singer further added,
“I love my son more than anything, but on a daily basis, if I have a minute or two, I wish I could do whatever the fuck I wanted, whenever I want. Every single day I feel like that.”
Talking about the pregnancy, Adele announced it on her blog in June 2012, five months before the baby was born. She said,
“I’m delighted to announce that Simon and I are expecting our first child together. I wanted you to hear the news direct from me, obviously we’re over the moon and very excited but please respect our privacy at this precious time. Yours always, Adele xx.”
Adele’s Son Leads a Hush-Hush Life
The Grammy Award-winning artist prefers to keep her baby boy behind closed doors. Back in 2013, Adele and her then-boyfriend Simon filed a private case against agency Corbis Photos UK for publishing intrusive paparazzi pictures of their kid taken during their public outings in 2013. The couple’s solicitor said The Guardian,
“It is a matter of profound sadness that many of his milestone moments, such as his first family outing and his first trip to playgroup, were photographed and published worldwide expressly against his family’s wishes. The parents’ view is that these images were of routine, everyday family occasions which the paparazzi has no right to intrude upon, profit from and file away in picture libraries for future reference and use.”
According to The Guardian, the duo won the case and received a five-figure settlement.
It’s been nearly nine years since their baby boy came into this world, however, the singer has yet to share a single photo of their kid.
