She wants to bring up her son in Los Angeles, where she rented Sir Paul McCartney's home to prepare for her performance at the Oscars last month.
"Adele can see the benefits of bringing up a child in the US. They can be outside, enjoying the weather and loving life out of the spotlight," a source told mirror.co.uk.
"Los Angeles is a great place for children to grow up and she intends on working a lot more with a new album. She could afford to put a studio in her house. That way she could beaver away on new music without having to worry," added the source.
She is said to be taking house-hunting advice from her friend Ayda Field and her husband, pop star Robbie Williams.
