Adele could face a fine of up to £1,000 for failing to register her baby, according to a tabloid source.

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 new born with the local authority.

Adele gave birth to her child on October 19 – 51 days ago – and neither she or her fiancé Simon Konecki have made an appointment to register their son, reports The Sun.

A source told the newspaper: "Cops are hardly going to be banging on their door tomorrow and 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 in three months then the registrar office will become liable and will be fined.

However, the singer should have no problem covering the £1,000 penalty after it was recently announced that her second album '21' has sold 25 million copies worldwide. The album has been certified 15-times platinum by the British Phonographic Industry for selling 4.5 million units in the UK alone.
