Adele’s dad reveals despair over not being able to see grandson

London - While Adele takes centre stage at the Oscars next month to perform Bond theme ‘Skyfall’, back at his South Wales home part-time plumber dad Mark Evans has revealed that it will be too painful to watch his daughter on stage.

Instead he will go to bed and make do – as he has done with news of her pregnancy and the recent birth of her first child – with reading about his daughter’s success in the next day’s papers after being cut out of Adele’s life following a family rift in 2011.

In spite of repeated phone calls, letters and even an attempt to contact Adele by turning up at her record company offices in London, Evans said that his efforts to repair the rift have been stonewalled.

Now, after exhausting every other avenue, the 49-year-old says he is speaking publicly, simply to appeal to his daughter to get in touch.

“I’ve left messages on her phone, I’ve written to her and I’ve sent her birthday and Christmas cards but it’s like I’m dead to her,” he told the Daily Mail.

He said that he is not interested in her celebrity status or her money. He just wants his daughter back, and wants to be a proper granddad to the little one.

Evans, who became a grandfather for the first time when Adele gave birth in October, added that not only did he hear he was going to be a granddad for the first time via the media, he found out the same way that she’s calling the baby Angelo James.

He had hoped that she’d put his late dad’s name, John, in there somewhere, but it looks as if it is not going to be.

If only she’d called him John, that would have meant so much  to him – and to his dad, he said.

He said that he thinks of his dad when he sees Adele on television now, and says his father would have loved to have seen her succeed..’

Evans said that the current situation meant he was “missing out on so many of the joys of being a grandfather.”

Simple pleasures like taking the kid out for a walk in his buggy along the promenade at Penarth like he used to with Adele, then stop off for an ice cream on the way back, he said.

“I want to do all the grandad stuff with him – feed the ducks in park, skim pebbles in the sea, splash around in the surf,” he said.

“And then there’s all the music we could listen to together. I’d play him my old blues records and sing him lullabies to help him close his eyes at bedtime.

“I just want normality. I want to be like any other grandad. I’ve got mates who I see with their grandchildren and I can’t bear to watch. It shows me what I’m missing out on,” he said.
