Ed Miliband registers birth of newborn son – and eldest son

Ed Miliband is no longer embarrassed since he registered both son's at the same time.

Ed Miliband and partner Justine Thornton have registered the birth of their second son Samuel Stewart Thornton Miliband, reports The Telegraph.

In September, Ed Miliband revealed on morning TV Show Daybreak that he had unfortunately not registered himself as the father of the couple’s 18-month-old son Daniel.

Ed explained it was a simple mistake due to the fact the couple are not married.  When married, only one parent needs to be present to register, however when not married the father needs to attend his local Town Hall to register, or sign a declaration confirming he is the dad.

At the time Ed joked, "We have got a second one on the way and I am going to make sure I do two for the price of one."

Ed has since kept his promise by registering baby Samuel just four days after birth, and he also put his name on eldest son Daniel’s birth certificate.
