Adele and Simon began dating in 2011 and welcomed Angelo in 2012. The former couple tied the knot six years later in May 2018, but the singer filed for divorce in September 2019.

She continued: "It's like you could be in you know, discussion or disagreement or a full-blown row if you want, not that me and his dad ever used to do that.

"If you're the one that's sort of initiating the discussion, it'd sort of be like, 'Well hang on a minute, go easy on me, you know, it's not my fault.' So it's just sort of really about that in the way that, you know, the decision that I made really, so yeah."

On how he's not too fussed about how famous she is, the Adele explained: "He does not care at all. He is like you're so busy all the time now, like blah-blah. But no he doesn't care and he's always comparing.

"The other day he was telling me how many YouTube followers I have is nowhere near as many as the big gamers. I was like, 'Okay cheers kid, thanks for that.' Again no he's not really aware of it yet".

She continued: "He's coming to a couple of, sort of work things that I have coming up and we'll see, but I'm sure he'll just be like, 'Well I think Flamingo will have done it like this or like that.' Like, yeah but he's great, he's a lot of fun, he's a very lovely, lovely little boy."
