Adele's First Disneyland Experience Made Her Cry & The Reason Is So Sweet — VIDEO
Just one day after her Grammys performance that went awry when a piano mishap made the song sound out of tune, Adele appeared on The Ellen DeGeneres Show to clear the air about what happened. Proving that even global superstars like Adele are their own worst critics, she said that she "cried pretty much all day" on Tuesday, but is shaking off the performance and moving on. The most interesting thing she revealed, however, was that she took her 3-year-old son to Disneyland during Grammys weekend, and she says she cried multiple times during the trip!
Adele is, undoubtedly, a totally cool mom to Angelo, having recently told TIME magazine, "I can’t wait to know who his best friends are going to be, who his girlfriend or his boyfriend is going to be or what movies he likes. Whatever my kid wants to do or be I will always support him no matter what." So what made her cry during her family's first trip to the Happiest Place on Earth?
She revealed that her late grandfather had always wanted to take her to Disneyland, but died before he was able to. She said she was overcome with emotion when she first saw Sleeping Beauty Castle upon entering the park.
Adele said she "was dreading going" and she was "really nervous to go," but she had "the best time there," telling a story about how her grandfather planned to take her when she was 11 or 12, but passed away when she was 10 and never got the chance. So as soon as she entered the park gates, she "got really emotional" and "full-on welled up" with tears. Aw!
Furthermore, she was emotional when she saw her son believing in the signature Disney magic:
The innocence of it all was what was so magical. I cried when I met Belle, because I was talking to my kid and she started talking, and I was like "OH MY GOD." She sounded just like the character from the film and it freaked me out and I burst into tears!
She added that her son loves Anna and Elsa from Frozen, and got to meet them during their trip. It's proof that even Adele isn't immune to the magic of Disney. There are photos of the singer, her partner Simon Konecki, and their son, enjoying their time in the park on social media, and they're literally the cutest thing ever.
Adele's family rocked casual clothes and baseball caps, and her son looked adorable in an Anna dress while she wheeled him around. They look basically the same way I look anytime I'm in a Disney park, which is over-the-top giddy and nerdy, just as it should be. There's truly nothing like the magic of Disney, and I'm so glad Adele got to finally experience it with her family.
