We're going to stick our necks out and make a prediction; 2013 will be a huge year for Adele

With a performance at The Oscars confirmed, where she'll belt out the fantasic Bond tune, Skyfall, a strong chance of winning the award for Best Original song and a healthy baby boy, all sign point to a magnificent year ahead. 

The Academy confirmed Adele's performance, tweeting: "We're so excited to have Adele perform Skyfall on this year's #Oscars, we made a gallery dedicated to Bond Theme Songs."

What's more, the confident singer has been fairly quiet leading up to the recent James Bond collaboration, and she could well have been working on new music, and if she has, we'd expect to see an album announcement by the summer. 

"It's an honour to be nominated and terrifyingly wonderful to be singing in front of people who have captured my imagination over and over again," Adele has said of performing at the Academy Award ceremony. "It's something I've never experienced and probably only ever will once."

The 24-year-old singer let the first name of her child slip on Monday after wearing a gold necklace bearing the word Angelo and now the full moniker has been revealed as Angelo James Konecki. 

A source told The Sun: "They've called him Angelo James. What a lovely name. They wanted to keep their choice quiet until they were ready, and wearing the necklace suggests she is now. It is only a name."
