How old is Adele’s son Angelo Adkins?

Angelo is the nine-year-old son of Adele and her ex-husband Simon Konecki.

The former couple welcomed their son a year after they began dating in 2012, and tied the knot in May 2016.

In September 2019 the pair filed for a divorce, which was finalised in 2020.

When their separation was announced, a representative for Adele said: “They are committed to raising their son together lovingly. As always they ask for privacy. There will be no further comment.”

Adele and Simon live close to each other in Beverly Hills, which makes it easy for them to co-parent Angelo.

When Angelo was three-years-old, Adele made it clear that she wanted him to be as grounded as possible despite her global fame.

The singer told Time at the time: “I’m very self-conscious that I have a kid, and I don’t want him to be one of those who grows 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.”

Who is Adele’s ex-husband?

Simon Konecki is a charity CEO and was born in April 1974.

He spent his early life in New York but then moved with his family to London when he was 10-years-old.

Although Simon and Adele have split, they remain on good terms.

In a new interview with Vogue, discussing the time before the divorce, Adele revealed: “I was just going through the motions and I wasn’t happy,” 

“Neither of us did anything wrong. Neither of us hurt each other or anything like that. It was just: I want my son to see me really love, and be loved. It’s really important to me.”

She went on to explain that she was just unhappy in her relationship and didn’t want to end up “miserable” – which she admitted she could see herself being if she didn’t end the relationship.

“If I can reach the reason why I left, which was the pursuit of my own happiness,” she explained.

Does Adele reference her son Angelo Adkins in her new album?

Ahead of Adele’s new album release, in the interview with Vogue, she also opens up about how her son found the split “difficult”.

She said: “If I can find that happiness and he sees me in that happiness, then maybe I’ll be able to forgive myself for it.”

She began writing her new album as a way to open up to her son Angelo about his parents divorce. 

“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***ing know,” 

She told Vogue: “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.”

While most of the songs on her upcoming album will reflect on her breakup, it’s not a divorce album she explained: “He’s not one of my exes. He’s the dad of my child,”

“It was more me divorcing myself. Just being like, B*tch, f***in’ hot mess, get your f***in’ sh*t together!”

Adele’s new song Easy on Me is set to release on October 15, six years after she had a hiatus from music.

She is yet to confirm a release date for the full album, but fans are expecting it to arrive on November 19, 2021.
