EastEnders actor Sid Owen may become the godfather of Adele's first child, according to reports.
The Strictly Come Dancing contestant has apparently been asked to have "close" involvement in the child's life.
The singer gave birth on Friday night, but no further comments have been made about the newborn's arrival, which is reported to be a baby boy.
A source told the Daily Star: "Sid is over the moon for Adele and his friend Simon.
"He loves both of them dearly and in all the excitement of the baby news he let slip that they wanted him to be closely involved with their son."
He added: "Sid longs for a child of his own and he's brilliant around kids... Until he settles down with the right girl and has his own family, Sid plans to lavish his friends' and brother's children with love. Sid's pretty hopeful he's a frontrunner to be godfather."
Supportive friend Adele recently sent Sid some flowers to wish him luck for his Strictly performance.
