First-time mum Adele has been targeted by online trolls who made sick jokes about her newborn son.
Soon after news emerged that the Skyfall singer, 24, had given birth to a baby boy, some Twitter users posted offensive comments about the star.
One tweet asked if the baby was "fat and handicapped" while another user suggested Adele would have more material for her next album if the newborn died.
And one member of the social networking site said: "Adele gave birth. When did she get pregnant? I thought she was fat."
Adele is thought to have had her first child with boyfriend Simon Konecki on Friday night.
The singer has not yet commented on her blog or Twitter account about the birth.
In June, Adele revealed she was "delighted" to be pregnant.
She wrote on her blog: "Simon and I are expecting our first child together. I wanted you to hear the news direct from me, obviously we're over the moon and very excited but please respect our privacy at this precious time."
