Singer Adele is facing a fine of £1,000 after she did not register her newborn son legally, within 42 days of birth.

The 24-year-old became a mother on October 19 but did not complete legal formalities and hence is facing the penalty.

However, things are not likely to turn serious for Adele, who is engaged to Simon Konecki.

"Cops are hardly going to be banging on their door and it's probably just an oversight on their part," thesun.co.uk quoted a 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 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.
