The girl with the golden voice (and some seriously well-manicured talons) has made her first post-pregnancy appearance tonight with a well-deserved win for her nominated theme song, “Skyfall.” Singer Adele brought giggles and candor to the Globes stage (housed at the Beverly Hills Hilton Hotel) while accepting her award for the James Bond film of the same name.
Adele welcomed her first child — a son — with boyfriend Simon Konecki, in October. News of her pregnancy came as a huge shock to fans after sweeping the Grammy Awards in February. She announced the happy news of her pregnancy in June on her website when she was already five months pregnant — unbeknownst to pretty much everyone. Her single, “Skyfall,” was up against several other big hitters for Best Original Song, including Taylor Swift‘s track from The Hunger Games, Jon Bon Jovi‘s number from Stand Up Guys, Keith Urban‘s track from Act of Valor, and “Suddenly” from Les Miserables.
Adele exclaimed “Oh my God!” no less than four times after taking the stage to accept her golden globe (literally) of a trophy. Continuing on her tour of general fabulousness and British charm, the singer only looked for a fun night out after months of what could only be non-stop sleepless nights and spit-up. “I was not expecting this,” the singer said in her speech. “Thank you for letting me be part of your world.” Check out the full thank-yous, below:
