In 2011 we fell in love with Adele, but in 2012 she proved she was here to stay.

After having surgery in November 2010 to remove a polyp from her vocal cords, the “Rolling In The Deep” singer was keeping quiet. But in February, she took the GRAMMY stage for the first time and proved her voice was just fine. Not to mention that she ended the night with six statues, taking home the prize for Record Of The Year, Song Of The Year and Album Of The Year.

From then on she ruled the charts and by November she sold 10 million copies of her 2011 album, 21. The singer managed to reach this record in under two years—92 weeks to be exact—making hers the 21st album to reach the milestone.

While fans are still anxiously awaiting Adele’s follow-up, she did manage to release one new song, “Skyfall,” the theme to the latest Bond movie. Something she was pretty excited about.

“I’ll be back combing my hair when I’m 60 telling people I was a Bond girl back in the day I’m sure,” she told the BBC.

Her only song of the year could even end up winning her an Oscar.

But even though she wasn’t spending her time in the studio, she did manage to keep herself busy, not to mention the photographers who were trying to catch a glimpse of her baby bump.

Rumor has it she gave birth to a baby boy in October, but the singer has kept mum about the name of her little guy.

One name we can’t forget though is Adele’s and she’s taking legal action to make sure of that.

The singer recently trademarked her name so that products like perfume and jewelry cannot use it for marketing purposes. Maybe she really is starting her own fashion line with Burberry.

So what will 2013 hold for the new mommy? We’re excited to find out.
