Although it’s been a few months since Boardwalk Empire actress Kelly Macdonald, 36, and Travis bassist Dougie Payne welcomed their second son, Theodore William Payne, the couple just registered his birth. Theodore was born on December 8 in Glasgow, Scotland, reports the UK’s Daily Record.
According to the General Register Office for Scotland, “You are supposed to register your child within that time [21 days] but obviously certain circumstances mean that parents can’t get in within the 21 days.” Certain circumstances like a hit show on HBO and a newborn? Yeah, we get it.
Want an even better excuse for the late registration? The couple already has one son Freddie, who is 4 years old. So throw a toddler into the mix, and the whole “late” thing is completely justified as far as we’re concerned!
Fortunately, now that they have taken care of everything, Kelly and Dougie will not be penalized in any way for their delayed registration.
