She's been something of a recluse as she prepared to be a mum for the first time and threw herself intp caring for her baby son - but is Adele missing the celebrity lifestyle just ever so slightly?
The pop star was snapped out and about in Los Angeles today as she went for a casual stroll with a friend and her baby boy strapped close to her chest wrapped in what looked like a Missoni blanket.
Adele has been in LA since she jetted in last week for the Golden Globes where she won the gong for the Best Original Song for 'Skyfall', the theme song from the latest Bond film.
But she has also been nominated in the same category in the Academy Awards, which take place on Februray 24th, which is just over a month away, so maybe Adele just fancied some better weather and some time to relax in private before Oscars day.
Last Sunday, as she received her Golden Globe, she said: "Oh my God! Oh my God, oh my God! I was not expecting this. Thank you so much! It is very strange to be here. Thank you so much for letting me be a part of your world tonight."
She also thanked Daniel Craig for "being such a wonderful Bond" and "my boyfriend [Simon Konecki] who convinced me to do it and my lovely son", whose name she has yet to reveal.
