London: Oscar-winning singer Adele has chosen TV chat show host Alan Carr to be godfather to her seven-month-old son Angelo James.

The `Rolling in the Deep` singer and her fiance Simon Konecki welcomed Angelo last October.

Although it was a close call between Carr and Adele`s good friend Sid Owen, best known for his role as Ricky Butcher in hit soap `EastEnders`, the 25-year-old singer eventually picked the former, reported Sun online.

"It was a toss-up between Sid and Alan for the godfather role and technically kids can have more than one godfather if the parents want," a source said.

"But even though the talk was that Sid was front runner, Alan`s been told by Adele he`s the godfather because he does so much with her and her new family. He`s stayed over at her house in London and gone to gigs with her as well as on long walks," it added.

Carr`s title means he will have a great deal of responsibility when it comes to looking out for the tot, with the possibility of becoming a guardian in the future if anything was to happen to the couple.

"It means if anything happens to Adele and her partner Simon, he`ll have a big part to play in Angelo`s life. And if Adele`s thought far ahead, Alan`s likely to be named in her will as a potential guardian along with her mother Penny," the source said.
