Adele has landed.
Just days before she’s set to debut her post-baby body at the Golden Globe Awards, the Grammy-winning songstress stepped out at LAX Airport in Los Angeles, Calif., on Jan 10. But she didn’t jet in to the states solo: Adele cradled her baby boy in a blanket as a security team shielded them from photographers.
Dressed in a head-to-toe black ensemble, the new mom made her way to an awaiting car, without giving a glimpse of her son’s face.
Adele and her the bundle of joy — her first child with boyfriend Simon Konecki – have remained mostly out-of-sight since the birth in October, last year.
Now the British pop star will return to the spotlight for the first time at the Globes, where her James Bond theme song “Skyfall” is nominated for Best Original Song.
Her hit single — which was named Best Song at the 2013 Critics’ Choice Awards on Thursday — will vie against Taylor Swift‘s “Safe and Sound” from The Hunger Games, Jon Bon Jovi‘s “Not Running Anymore” from Stand Up Guys, Keith Urban‘s “For You” from Act of Valor, and “Suddenly” from Les Miserables.
Then it’s on to the Academy Awards for Adele, where “Skyfall” will compete against the crème de la crème in the star-studded category for the Best Original Song Oscar: the Scarlett Johansson-sung “Before My Time” from Chasing Ice; the Norah Jones-sung and Seth MacFarlane-written “Everybody Needs a Best Friend” from Ted; “Pi’s Lullaby” from Life of Pi; and Hugh Jackman‘s heart-wrenching “Suddenly” from Les Misérables.
Not only is “Skyfall” a frontrunner for the Best Original Song statuette — and the first nominee in a decade to also been a top 10 hit on the Billboard Hot 100 — but James Bond will also be honored in a feature segment that pays tribute to the franchise’s 50th anniversary.
After hearing word of her nominations, Adele shared her joy on Twitter. “Oh my God I feel like Meryl Streep!,” she wrote to her 11 million followers. “Thank you x.”
