Adele Still Isn't Sharing Baby's Name
At the Golden Globes ceremony last night, British crooner - and new mom - Adele wowed the crowd when she accepted her award for best song. Collecting the prize for "Skyfall", the theme to the latest James Bond movie, Adele made sure to thank music producer Paul Epworth, Bond actor Daniel Craig, and, of course, her partner Simon Konecki. One name was kept out of her speech, though - that of her three-month-old baby boy's.
When we last checked in with Adele, she had just missed the UK government deadline to register her baby. Parents in the United Kingdom have 42 days from the birth to register a new addition to government records. Those who miss the deadline are levied a 1000-pound fine. The deadline isn't too strict; as a source told The Sun at the time, "There’s loads of reasons why parents are late and millions of couples don’t bother for ages." Since then, Adele and Simon still haven't registered their son. They're now approaching the three-month point after which their registrar becomes liable and can be fined.
When asked about her son last night, Adele explained to the BBC, "I'm not revealing his name. I'm not ready, it's too personal and intimate. I'm enjoying him on my own at the moment." In the meantime, the world is waiting. "Skyfall" is up for best song at the Academy Awards next month. Will that acceptance speech be the one where we finally hear her son's name?
Would you wait before revealing your child's name? When do you think Adele will share her son's name with the world?
