'I'm raising him to respect women' Adele gives rare insight into parenting son Angelo

The singer spoke out on what she's teaching her four-year-old son

Grammy winner Adele has given a glimpse into her parenting and spoken out about how she's raising her son to 'respect women'.

The 28 year old shared the rare insight into her family life in an interview with OK! magazine, where she said she's raising her son Angelo to be a feminist.

'I'm raising him to respect women. He knows I'm a powerful force', she told the publication.

'He feels it at home, let alone when he comes to work with me. And he comes everywhere with me anyway!'

The singer is about to start the Australian leg of her tour and was seen touching down with her son in Sydney.

Last March, she revealed at one of her concerts that it was the first time Angelo was seeing her perform, aged only three.

In tears, she told the crowds: 'This is the first show my baby boy has seen me do. I love you so much Peanut.'

She had previously talked about motherhood, saying it gave her a purpose.

'It's the greatest thing I ever did. Now I have a purpose', she told the Sun. 'I want him to be proud of me and understand why I do this.'

Despite opening up about her family recently, the singer is usually very private about her personal life.

As well as keeping her four-year-old son away from the spotlight, Adele also avoids sharing details of her relationship with charity founder Simon Konecki.

Adele and Simon have been together since 2011

The two have been together since 2011, and got engaged at one of her concerts last October.

She later revealed in one of her acceptance speeches at the Grammmy Awards that the pair had married, by referring to Simon as her 'husband'.

'Grammys, I appreciate it, the Academy, I love you, my manager, my husband and my son - you're the only reason I do it', she said after receiving one of the five accolades of the night.

Adele also spoke about her emotional acceptance speech at the Grammys, when she dedicated her win to Beyonce, whom she thought deserved the award more than her.

'I am of course very grateful to have won it. But I felt the need to say that because I love her and I felt like she was more worthy.'
