New mum, Adele and boyfriend Simon Konecki reportedly want former EastEnders actor, Sid Owen, to be their new-born baby’s godfather!
According to The Daily Star newspaper, Adele’s partner, Konecki, is really good friend with the actor, who is currently taking part in this year’s Strictly Come Dancing, and has approached him with the honour of being godfather as he and his award-winning Brit singer girlfriend wish him to have a “close” involvement in their child’s upbringing.
A friend of Owen’s, who declared his latest exit as Ricky Butcher from the hit BBC soap EastEnders, was to be his last, told the tabloid: “Sid is over the moon for Adele and his friend Simon.
“He loves both of them dearly and in all the excitement of the baby news he let slip that they wanted him to be closely involved with their son.”
They continued: “Sid longs for a child of his own and he’s brilliant around kids. He has nieces and nephews and is always doing impressions for them.
“Sid sent a massive bouquet, presents for the baby and a card to Adele.
“Until he settles down with the right girl and has his own family Sid plans to lavish his friends’ and brother’s children with love. Sid’s pretty hopeful he’s a frontrunner to be godfather.”
Owen has amazed audiences with his dancing ability in this year’s hit BBC reality dancing competition, Strictly Come Dancing, and apparently Adele has become his biggest fan!
The insider continued: “Adele sent Sid a huge bouquet of flowers before his first performance last weekend. It came with a good luck card telling him he was going to ‘sweep the board.’
“She also sent him a string of text messages saying she was glued to the show. Adele thought his waltz was amazing, and honestly reckons Sid can go all the way and win the competition.”
