Adele thanks her newborn son and James Bond actor Daniel Craig at the Golden Globes as she collected the award for her 'Skyfall' theme tune.

The singer - who did not perform at the event - won the Golden Globe while making her first public appearance since the birth of her son in October. The award was for the best original song, and Adele took home the award for her theme to the James Bond film Skyfall.

In her acceptance speech, Adele said, "Oh my god! Oh my god, oh my god! Honestly, I've come out for a night out with my friend Ida, we're new mums, we've literally come for a night out. I was not expecting to [win]. Thank you so much! My god!

"It's very strange to be here and thank you so much for letting me be part of your world for a night. It's amazing, we've been p**sing ourselves laughing at all of this."

She also thanked James Bond actor Daniel Craig, saying, "I'd like to thank the Hollywood Foreign Press - I never thought I'd ever say that! Sony Pictures, MGM, Sam Mendes, Paul Epworth, who I wrote the song with, Daniel Craig for being such a wonderful Bond.

"And this [award] is for my boyfriend Simon, who convinced me to do it, and my lovely son. Thank you so much."

When speaking backstage to the Telegraph after her win, Adele confirmed that she does not yet want to reveal her son's name, saying, "I'm not revealing his name. It's too intimate and personal at the moment. I'm enjoying it, thanks for asking. I feel very excited, this is my first night out."

She went on to speak about the song, saying, "It's absolutely amazing, it's very surreal and quite hilarious because this is not my normal field. My inspiration normally comes from heartbreak but I don't think I'm going to be devastated again.

"I had my child two weeks before the film came out so it was bad timing. It was such an honour to be involved. Normally I write about my misery and this time I wrote according to someone's script. It's absolutely amazing. I took the risk and I'm very proud of it."
