Adele Gives Birth to a Baby Boy

Reports are all over the web saying that Adele has just become a mother, giving birth to a baby boy.

The famously private singer has managed to keep out of the limelight during her pregnancy, following 2011's mega successful year, with her album 21.

Adele and partner  Simon Konecki are "ecstatic at their new arrival" according to one source with the The Daily Mail claiming the birth occurred on Friday (19th Oct).

This really is the icing on the cake for the singer, following a 6 Grammy haul in February, the new James Bond song 'Skyfall' and now a bundle of joy, topping off a fantastic 2012.

Adele Skyfall Video

Adele's biggest piece of music related news was her delivering the brand new Bond tune following in the footsteps of legends like Shirley Bassey, Tina Turner, Frank Sinatra, Tom Jones, Duran Duran, Aha into cinematic music history.

Adele's track for Skyfall, the 23rd in the successful James Bond franchise has been hitting the upper reaches of the download charts since it's release and it's a classic Bond Theme in the established style. The film opens in UK cinemas on the 27th October and is the 3rd outing for Daniel Craig in this tougher, modern Bond.


On the Live front though, not much to report, according to XL Recordings label boss Richard Russel, we might be waiting a while for her next album.  As Adele and partner Simon are expecting their first child, she's going to be away from the limelight for some time. Good Luck and best wishes to all.

Possibly 2013.....if were lucky, maybe 2014, but please don't make us wait any longer......

Manchester next and to The Academy, Citylife make a point of her spot on choice of covers, Dylan again and The Cure's brilliant Love Song and a killer encore of Someone Like You and Rolling In The Deep.

The HMV Institute in Birmingham witnessed that special Adkins magic, with Birmingham's Express and Star, The Shropshire Star and The Birmingham Mail all giving her the thumbs up!

Southampton's Guildhall was the penultimate leg with Bournemouth Daily Echo going with spellbinding and Mintsouth raving about her performance, the band, the choice of tracks, the stage decoration, pretty much everything.

For the final show of the tour it was true Homecoming Glory as Adele put on a special show at London's Shepherds Bush Empire (O2 Empire Shepherds Bush) for her native fans. The News of the World had a great review, praise her to the high heavens, commenting how she performs the opener from behind the curtain
