She’s devoted herself to being a mother since the birth of her son in October.
And even as she prepares to make her big comeback, Adele is keeping her three-month-old baby close.
The Oscar-nominated singer jetted into Los Angeles on Thursday night ahead of her performance at the Golden Globes Awards on Sunday – her first time on stage in months.
Adele has yet to make her son’s name public and may be too late if she has missed the 42-day legal deadline.
The singer, who gave birth 51 days ago has reportedly not made an appointment to register her son and could now face a £1000 fine.
A source told the Sun 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.’
Adele and fiance Simon Konecki will begin to receive warning letters in the upcoming weeks if they do not register a name and the registrar can become liable and fined if they fail to do so within three months.

The young mum tied her red hair up into a large bun atop her head and wore dark sunglasses so required help from her bodyguard to the waiting car.
The singer’s baby – who was born in October – was dressed in a black and white striped onesie.
The 24-year-old is in Los Angeles to perform the song she penned for the latest James Bond installment, Skyfall, at Sunday’s Globes.
