The 'Rolling In The Deep' singer's aunt speaks about how "proud" she is of the star.
Adele's aunt has revealed how her family stayed up until the early hours of the morning to watch the singer pick up Best Original Song at the Oscars 2013.
Anita Adkins told The Sun how they didn't expect the singer to win in Hollywood and are incredibly "proud" of her accomplishments.
"We didn't expect her to get it, but good on her," she told the publication. "There's not a lot more for her to top now, is there? She's worked her way through all the awards."
Speaking about the big night at the 85th Academy Awards, she added: "All the cousins sat up watching it, and of course they're proud.
"Adele's the same as us — when she burst into tears, we all did too."
Adele thanked producer Paul Epworth and her boyfriend Simon Konecki during an emotional speech on the night.
"We're all quite strong but we're all quite emotional. Adele's one of us — she burst into tears because she's happy and overjoyed, and we are too," Anita continued. "We feel what she feels."
As well as winning the prize on the night for her James Bond theme 'Skyfall', the British star also performed the track to those in attendance.
She has since returned to the UK and recently uploaded a picture of her own award next to a "Best Son" mock prize for her first child Angelo.
