EDITORS: RESENDING WITH FULL SCRIPT She's hardly had time to settle into motherhood, and already celebrity well-wishes are flooding in for Adele. The "Skyfall" singer has reportedly given birth to a baby boy over the weekend. And stars at Monday's (October 22) Q Awards in London could hardly contain their excitement about showbiz's latest yummy mummy. SOUNDBITE: Kylie Minogue, singer, saying (English): "Wow, congratulations. That seems to have happened really fast, doesn't it? When I heard the news I thought, how, how? But she must be stoked, so yeah, huge congratulations to the happy parents. And welcome to the world." SOUNDBITE: Emeli Sande, singer, saying (English): "She's such a true artist and that's why people connect with her, cause she writes about how she's feeling and what's actually happening in her life so I think it's gonna bring more great music from her." No official confirmation from the Adele camp yet. The singer announced only in June that she and boyfriend Simon Konecki were expecting their first child together. The couple's been dating since January. There's also speculation the happy news will help boost Adele's 007 "Skyfall" theme tune charts performance. The film's world premiere is due to take place in London on Tuesday with the leading cast all in attendance. However, with baby duties now high on her agenda Adele's likely to give tomorrow's red carpet a miss.
