Career

His mother, Adele, started her career in 2006. She started from her graduation projects and published two songs on her fourth issue. Angelo enjoys life away from the spotlight and media attention like his mother. After 30 debuts, Adele will possibly continue her personal life, away from the camera’s gleam.

Details about Angelo often come from snippets shared by Adele during interviews. In an interview with Time in 2015, Adele stated that she wants Angelo to have a normal childhood. She said:

“I’m very conscious that I have a kid, and I don’t want him to be one of those who grow up being like ‘‘Driver, driver! I have no clean clothes” Well, have you washed them? I really don’t want him growing up like that. I’m very conscious of it.”

Being Adele’s first son is already beneficial to the 9-year-old Angelo in the future, but it can also place immense pressure on the boy. Adele clarified that she isn’t expecting anything in clear terms; she expects nothing from Angelo and wants him to go after whichever passion or career he chooses.

In an interview with Oprah, she said, “I don’t care what his career is, as long as he is passionate about whatever he does and that he is happy.” After the birth of Angelo, Adele returned to the charts with the song Hello in 2015, the lead single from her comeback album 25; she was awarded five Grammys, including album, record, and song of the year in 2017.

As the British star, the Queen of the soul, as she is often called by her fans, sang new songs from 30; she disclosed that it was the first time her son Angelo would watch her sing live. She said, “It’s the absolute honor of my life to have you here tonight, baby.”

Just as Penny is a source of inspiration for most of Adele’s songs, she has revealed that Angelo has been an inspiration since his arrival. One of the songs he inspired is her song 25; although Adele didn’t want to make 25 about Angelo and parenthood, she dedicated the song Remedy to him.

“I wrote it Remedy about my child,” she told Rolling Stone. “But I sang it for everyone that I love. When I wrote it, I got my confidence back in my writing because I believed in myself.”

Angelo, however, is yet to understand the extent of his mother’s fame, although he began to comprehend the extent of Adele’s fame during the countdown to the release of Easy on Me on YouTube. “There was like a hundred thousand people waiting, and you had all these likes, People like you,” Angelo said to his mother.”  

One Time when Adele attended a Taylor Swift concert along with Angelo, she recounted saying, “He’s starting to get it a little bit, but not really.” Adkins had been in  Adele’s concert halls, but she made him vacate the venue before people started arriving. It was the first time he saw a packed concert venue. “Because he’s used to coming to my stadium shows for my rehearsals, and it’d be empty,” Adele said. “He’s like, ‘So many people come to her shows’ cause I’dd make him leave before they all arrived. It was so cute and so funny.”

Personal life

Adele is raising her son as gender-neutral. The popular singer has mentioned that she allows her son to fully express himself as he is. Lately, Angelo was spotted in a Disneyland dress, in a Princess Anna costume.

Angelo Adkins’s Parents

Adkin’s mother is the popular English singer and songwriter Adele. Adele is a Grammy-winning singer and has sold over a million record albums worldwide. She has won numerous awards, including 15 Grammys, not to speak of an Oscar. Adele’s initial two albums, 19 and 21, gained her significant applause and good status of commercial success.

Despite her hectic schedules, Angelo’s mother is very involved in her son’s childhood and doesn’t keep him indoors all the year. She often takes Angelo to the park and birthday parties of his friends.

Adkins’s father, Simon Konecki, Adele’s ex-husband, is a British investment banker who later became a philanthropist. Furthermore, Simon is a charity entrepreneur and the CEO of the charity organization Drop4Drop. He is also the co-founder of Life Water. He administered as a foreign exchange broker and operated at the Lehman Brothers, managing teams of senior brokers. Simon and Adele met each other in 2011.

Adele started dating Simon in mid-2011 and became parents to their son Angelo in 2012. However, the couple tied the knot six years later in 2018. The marriage ceremony was held privately in an inn. Adele substantiated her union with Simon at the 2018 Grammys while Simon received the Los Angeles mansion as a gift, which the couple earlier bought for $500000.

However, they divorced just 11 months after their wedding as the British Queen of Soul filed for divorce from her husband in September 2019. Although the couple has separated, they have decided to raise their son together. Adele shares her son with her ex-husband Simon Konecki.

Adele and Simon now live not so far from each other in Beverly Hills, which has made it quite easy for them to co-parent Angelo. The singer has repeatedly stated that they still maintain a good relationship and recently revealed that he has earned the nickname Simon the Diamond amongst her friends.

Adkin’s parents are exceptionally protective of their son. They want the paparazzi to keep him off. One Time in 2014, Corbis Images UK Limited’s agency photographed Angelo when the family was out in private. The precious moment happened to be Angelo’s first family outing and his first outing to the playground.

However, the photos that were later published worldwide without his parent’s consent served as an infringement of the right to privacy. Simon and Adele sued the company since the photographs were taken during their family’s private and recreational Time. The court compensated Angelo with a five-figure settlement in a privacy lawsuit against the company.

In an interview with Time in 2015, the singer once said, “He makes me so proud of myself, and he makes me like myself so much. I’ve always liked myself. I don’t have hang-ups like that. But I’m so proud that I made him in my belly. Cooked him in my belly, and when he came out of me, This human who’s suddenly walking around and doing his own thing. I can’t wait to know who his best friend will be, who his girlfriend or boyfriend is going to be, or what movies he likes.”

Adele also said that she wouldn’t mind getting more children, although she’s in no rush to expand her family. “I would like more children,” Adele said. She also added, “It wouldn’t be the end of the world if I didn’t because I have Angelo, but yeah, I think so.”

Angelo started looking for answers to how and why his parents split up, just as Adele was trying to figure things out. She shared with Vogue how her son approached her with a thousand and one questions — just like any kid at his age would. She said, “He has so many simple questions for me that I can’t answer because I don’t know the answer, “Like, Why can’t we still live together? That’s just not what people do when they get divorced. But why not? I’m like, I don’t f-----g know. That’s not what society does. And: Why don’t you love my dad anymore? And I’d be like, I do love your dad. I’m just not in love. I can’t make that make sense to a nine-year-old.”
