Adele and her partner Simon Konecki treated their son Angelo to a day at Disneyland in California over the weekend and even allowed him to dress as Princess Anna from the Disney animated film Frozen, according to The Daily Mirror.
Angelo appeared in his stroller in a blue and yellow dress complete with dressy black ballet flats. His mother pushed him, smiling in the brilliant sunshine as his father walked beside them.

Angelo is not the only boy who has been taken by the female characters in Frozen. For Halloween, one dad agreed to play the younger sister Anna to his son's older sister Elsa. “It's important for children to know that their parents will stand by them no matter what," the boy's father Paul Henson told the Huffington Post of their son's costume choice, "Ashley and I will do whatever it takes to keep our son happy and not take his innocence and imagination from him.”
In the past, allowing boys to dress as female characters was seen as extremely controversial and while it is still notable enough to spawn articles like this one, many parents like Adele now realize that heroes come in various forms.
Besides, if Adele didn't allow Angelo to dress as Anna, wouldn't she be a bit hypocritical? He's hardly the first in his family to enjoy a gender-bending costume. For her 27th Birthday, Adele dressed head to toe as her "hero," George Michael.
"#gottahavefaith," she tweeted of her costume: A great parenting motto.
