Adele's child with Simon Konecki, her ex-husband, is named Angelo Adkins. Adele told Oprah that '30' was her way of showing her kid who she is and what she has been through during her "One Night Only" special in November 2021, which was the first time Angelo saw his mother perform in front of an audience.
Adele said to Oprah in the same interview that Angelo was unaware of his mother's fame until he saw her social media posts and the numerous likes and comments they received. "Then he was like, ‘People really like you,'" Adele said. "He’s starting to get it a little bit, but not really."
Adele also recounted a "funny" moment when she went to a Taylor Swift performance with Angelo and she was unaware that his mother would have an equal number of admirers. "Because it was always empty when he used to attend my stadium performances for rehearsals.
‘So many people come to her shows,’ cause I’d make him leave before they all arrived," she said. "It was so cute and so funny." Adele also revealed that following her divorce from Konecki, she felt "a little bit selfish" since she couldn't reconcile with Angelo's father.
I knew that as an adult, Angelo would be livid with me for doing that. I knew that when he became an adult that he’d be furious at me. And I didn’t want that either. But it was, it was hard work. I just wanted him to hear me talking madly deeply about who I am and how I feel, like you know, and I don’t know if I’d ever be able to have that conversation with him in real life.
Adele acknowledged her son, who saw her play live for the first time, throughout the event. "It’s the absolute honor of my life to have you here tonight baby," Adele declared.
