The ‘Someone Like You’ singer is set to face the penalty for missing the 42-day deadline in which parents are legally bound to register their newborn with the local authority.

Adele gave birth to her child on October 19 and allegedly neither she or her fiancé Simon Konecki have made an appointment to register their son. 

A source reportedly told the newspaper: “It’s probably just an oversight on their part. Most parents register their baby within a couple of weeks because it’s a nice thing to do – and because there’s a maximum fine of £1,000 if they don’t. There’s loads of reasons why parents are late and millions of couples don’t bother for ages.”

It’s reported that the couple will now start receiving warning letters in the next few weeks and if the baby isn’t registered within three months then the registrar office will become liable and will be fined.
