Adele may have started her day off at dawn, but the early morning wake up call came courtesy of her son — not her glam squad.

“I’ve been up since 6 a.m. so I’m quite tired, but it’s nice,” Adele, who won best pop solo performance for her hit, “Set Fire to the Rain,” told reporters backstage at the Grammy Awards Sunday.

“I haven’t been as stressed out,” she said. “In life you have to prioritize what you stress about and worry about when you have a child.”

And just as her primping for the big show took a backseat to baby boy — reportedly named Angelo — Adele admits any upcoming albums are coming along at a much more slower pace than usual.

“I’ve been having lots of meetings and I’ve been out of the loop really,” the new mom, who arrived in Los Angeles before the Golden Globes, explains. “I’ve been singing my baby nursery rhymes so I don’t really know what’s cool and what’s not.”

Taking the stage to accept her award, Adele thanked her lucky charm — presenter Jennifer Lopez! — before her special shout-out to fellow working moms.

“This is amazing. I just wanted to come and be a part of the night because I loved it last year, obviously,” she joked. “I just want to … send big love to all the other girls and all us females doing this because we work so hard and we make it look so easy.”
