Mark Evans, Adele's father, admits he hasn't always been a great dad, however he still wants to reconnect with the singer and meet his grandchild.
The feeling is not mutual, apparently.
Mark Evans told the Daily Mail he desperately wants to rekindle his relationship with the "Someone Like You" songbird, but that he's the only one.
"I've left messages on her phone, I've written to her and I've sent her birthday and Christmas cards," Evans said. "But it's like I'm dead to her."
"I'm not interested in her celebrity status or her money," he added. "I just want my daughter back and I want to be a proper granddad to the little one."
British celebrity gossip tabloids have reported Angelo James Konecki is the child's full name, although Adele has yet to publicly confirm any of this.
Her estranged father is NOT pleased with the name, if that's it.
"I'd hoped so much that she would put my late dad's name, John, in there somewhere, but alas it looks as if it is not going to be," Evans said, sadly.
"I'm not sure why she's chosen James, other than a reference to James Bond, and God alone knows where Angelo has come from. It's very L.A., isn't it?"
Evans laments "missing out on so many of the joys of being a grandfather, simple pleasures like taking him out for a walk in his buggy" and the like.
As Evans says he misses his daughter, he won't be watching her performance of "Skyfall" at the Oscars, though "I know she'll win [for best song]," he assures.
"But I won't even watch ... it would upset me too much to know that I was watching something that my dad never got to see. I'd break down and fall apart."
