Adele likely has her hands full after the birth of her first child, but there's something she forgot to do that's going to cost her.

The 24-year-old and boyfriend Simon Konecki welcomed a baby boy (whose name has not yet been released to the public) in October, but have failed to register their son within the 42-day legal deadline, reports The Sun.

The "Skyfall" singer faces a £1,000 fine ($1,606 USD) for not having registered the birth of their son with the government. According to the UK government's website, "all births must be registered within 42 days of the child being born" and filed with documents containing the place and date of the birth, parents names, sex of the baby, parents' addresses, as well as the place and dates of the parents' birth, and their jobs.

“Cops are hardly going to be banging on their door tomorrow and it’s probably just an oversight on their part," a source told the Sun.

Given that the singer sold more than 10 million copies of her album "21" in the United States alone, we doubt she's too worried about having to pay the fine.
