For someone who doesn’t want to publicly reveal her baby boy’s name, Adele sure is dropping a lot of hints!
While picking up the Grammy for Best Solo Pop Performance on Sunday, the “Set Fire to the Rain” singer – who gave birth to a son in October – flashed a new tattoo: a script “A” behind her right ear, which was only noticeable because her strawberry blond locks were styled in an updo.
While the British songstress said in January that she’s “not ready” to share the name of the child she welcomed with her entrepreneur beau Simon Konecki because it’s “too personal and intimate,” the latest clue gives more credence to reports that her wee one is named Angelo.
The singer, who has been staying in Los Angeles during awards season, initially seemed to give away her secret during a shopping spree at a baby boutique last month. Dressed all in black – her trademark look – she was wearing an interesting accessory: a shiny gold nameplate necklace that spelled out “Angelo.”
As far as her red carpet look at the Grammys, Adele stepped away from her favorite color and brightened up the red carpet in a red floral dress. The retro-inspired number met all parts of the Grammys dress code – the long sleeve frock fell to her knee and featured a high collar. Her shoes featured the same print.
In the press room, Adele talked about how she’s been balancing baby and career.
“I’ve been up since 6 a.m., so I’m quite tired,” the 24-year-old told reporters. “It’s nice – I haven’t been as stressed out. You have to prioritize what you get stressed out about when you have a child… Normally I love getting my hair and makeup done, but this time I was like, ‘Get off. Get off.’”
She’s been happily “out of the loop, really,” Adele added. “ I’ve just been singing my baby nursery rhymes.”
While she didn’t perform at the Grammys, she will be center stage at the Academy Awards on February 24, where she will sing her nominated hit “Skyfall” on Hollywood’s biggest night – and she’s already a nervous.
“I’ll be s--tting myself,” she said of the highly-anticipated performance … in a way only Adele could.
