She also thanked her boyfriend and son, Sam Mendes, Daniel Craig, her new son and her boyfriend Sam who "encouraged her to do the song".
After winning, Adele spoke with the press still excited as this was her first night out since she had her baby. She refused to give her son's name and said that she would never be a Bond if they asked her when asked by reports.
