Adele tight-lipped on son's name

Adele calls her son "Little Peanut".

The 24-year-old star has revealed the nickname she has given to her and fiance Simon Konecki's baby boy, whom she gave birth to in October, but she is remaining tight-lipped on the little one's real name.

She told People magazine: "I just call him Little Peanut."

Adele refused to reveal her first child's moniker at the Golden Globes - where she made her first formal public appearance since giving birth to her baby to pick up the Best Song prize for her theme to James Bond film 'Skyfall' – earlier this month because she was "not ready".

When asked the name of her baby, she replied: "It's too personal and intimate. I'm not ready."

But Adele did admit motherhood has made her "exhausted", and insists giving birth to the little one so close to the 'Skyfall' release date was "bad timing".

She added: "I am exhausted, that's how it's changed me. That and eczema from boiling bottles.

"I had my child about two weeks before the 'Skyfall' film came out. So it was bad timing."

While the couple are yet to reveal the name of their baby, there has also been speculation they have not yet registered his birth - which could result in a £1,000 fine as babies are supposed to be registered within 42 days in the UK.
