Adele is facing a $1,600 fine, from British authorities for not registering her new-born baby within a 42-day period. The English singer gave birth to her first son with fiancee Simon Konecki on October 19th, more than 50 days ago.
English law requires all new-born babies have to be registered with the government within a 42-day period.
According to authorities, the singer has not yet completed the legal formalities associated with her baby.
A source close to the situation tell’s The Sun that Adele and her fiance have “hardly” anything to worry about for not registering their son.
“Cops are hardly going to be banging on their door and it’s probably just an oversight on their part,” thesun.co.uk quoted the source as saying.
“Most parents register their baby within a couple of weeks because it is a nice thing to do — and because there is a maximum fine of 1,000 pounds if they don’t. There are loads of reasons why parents are late and millions of couples don’t bother for ages,” the source added.
It is reported that parents have up to 90 days to get the registration paperwork completed before being formally fined.
Adele has also yet to make public the name of her baby. Adele and Konecki, a charity entrepreneur began dating about a year ago and soon became engaged when Simon presented her with a 10.57 carat De Beers ring at the last years Oscars awards.
Adele plans on having a laid-back ceremony at her $9.5 million West Sussex, England estate on an unannounced date.
