Adele refuses to reveal the name of her newborn son, claiming it is too intimate to make public and saying only that she refers to the youngster as 'little peanut'.

The 'Skyfall' singer gave birth in October but has still not shared her son's name, saying that she thinks it's too personal to do so just yet.

When asked the name of her son at the Golden Globes, Adele said, "It's too personal and intimate. I'm not ready."

However, in a new interview she tells Heat magazine, "I just call him Little Peanut."

Adele goes on to speak about motherhood, saying, "I am exhausted, that's how it's changed me. That and eczema from boiling bottles. I had my child about two weeks before the 'Skyfall' film came out. So it was bad timing."

 The singer recently won a Golden Globe for Best Original Song, and thanked her 'lovely son' in the acceptance speech - still not referring to him by name.

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."
