Yikes! Looks like being a new mom might have to cost some money for Adele.
According to The Sun, the British songstress (who gave birth to a boy on October 19), missed the 42 day cut-off date to legally register her baby. Neither Adele or her boyfriend Simon Konecki, have made any appointments to register their new son with the British government.
“Cops are hardly going to be banging on their door tomorrow and it’s probably just an oversight on their part,” said a source to the tab.
“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 (about $1,613) if they don’t. There’s loads of reasons why parents are late and millions of couples don’t bother for ages.”
I can see why Adele probably hasn’t went out of her way to register her baby.
She is a busy woman and has been quite quiet about her pregnancy. And since it is natural for a mother to feel protective, she probably knows that registering the tot will make his name known and risk more details leaking about him.
However, it would be best to get this kind of thing out of the way before warning letters start coming. If the birth hasn’t been recorded within three months, the registrar can be held liable and fined—meaning that the proud parents may have more things to worry about in the future.
But that being said, I’m sure Adele can cover the costs.
