Adele is certainly a devoted mother, that's for sure. The Oscar-nominated singer jetted into Los Angeles on Thursday evening head of her performance at the Golden Globe awards on Sunday, though instead of leaving her 3-month-old baby at home with the nanny, the Londoner carried him straight through the arrivals gate, past the throng of waiting photographers, and into her waiting car.

The protective mother - wearing dark Rayban sunglasses - clutched her son close to a chest, covering him with a warm blanket. She's still yet to make the baby's name public, despite giving birth some 51 days ago. However, there's a problem. Adele has reportedly not made an appointment to register her son and could face a £1,000 fine - in other words, he's officially nameless. A source told the Sun newspaper, "Cops are hardly going to be banging on their door tomorrow and it's probably just an oversight on their part. Most parents register their baby within a couple of weeks because it's a nice thing to do - and because there's a maximum fine of £1,000 if they don't...There's loads of reasons why parents are late and millions of couples don't bother for ages." For her long-haul flight from London to Los Angeles, the Bond singer opted for comfort over style and wore black leggings, a black top and warm looking cardigan. The paparazzi were intent on getting a photograph of her newly born child, though Adele was having none of it, holding the tot firmly against her chest as security bundler her into a waiting black car. 

The 24-year-old singer is set to perform her Skyfall song at Sunday's Globes, which bagged her an Oscar nomination when the list was announced by Seth Macfarlane and Emma Stone on Thursday. Following the announcement Adele immediately tweeted of her delight: "Oh my god I feel like Meryl Streep!! Thancenk you," she said.
