Adele names baby boy her little 'Angelo'

Adele has reportedly named her baby son Angelo.

The Rolling In The Deep singer - who up until now has kept her baby boy's name a secret since his birth last October - has been spotted wearing a gold necklace with the name Angelo while out shopping in Los Angeles.

A source close to the star, 24, who is engaged to charity worker Simon Konecki, confirmed the child's moniker, and told The Sun newspaper: "Those close to Adele have been told the baby is called Angelo. We're not sure of the significance of the name.

"She's wanted to keep it quiet but it was always going to come out sooner or later.

"Wearing an Angelo necklace, not only backs up what is being said, it suggests she's not worried about people finding out."

Adele refused to reveal her first child's name at the Golden Globes - where she made her first formal public appearance since giving birth to pick up the Best Song prize for her theme to James Bond film Skyfall - earlier this month because she was "not ready".

When asked the name of her baby, she replied: "It's too personal and intimate. I'm not ready."

But she added: "I just call him Little Peanut."

The British star, who is tipped to win an Oscar for Best Song next month, admitted motherhood has made her "exhausted", and insists giving birth to the little one so close to the movie's release date was "bad timing".

"I am exhausted, that's how it's changed me. That and eczema from boiling bottles," she added.

"I had my child about two weeks before the Skyfall film came out. So it was bad timing."

Oscars performance

Meanwhile, it has been announced that Adele will perform her Bond theme song at the Oscars next month, taking to the stage for the first time since giving birth.

The song is nominated for the original song award at the 85th Academy Awards, the first time a Bond theme has been nominated in that category since For Your Eyes Only in 1981.

The February 24 awards will be the first time Adele has performed live since the Grammy Awards last April, and the first time she has performed Skyfall live.

"It's an honour to be nominated and terrifyingly wonderful to be singing in front of people who have captured my imagination over and over again," the superstar said in a statement.

"It's something I've never experienced and probably only ever will once."
