The document, filed with the Los Angeles County Register Recorder/County Clerk, and obtained by TMZ.com, was filed on May 8--almost a month after baby Suri was born.
It's customary in Los Angeles to file the birth details within 10 days of the delivery. A source at St John's Hospital, where baby Suri was born, tells TMZ.com the delay occurred because they needed a signature from the parents or a representative of the parents certifying birth, and that person did not come in until May 4.
The hospital source also reveals the 'friend' explained to staff that the birth certificate was necessary for Suri to obtain a passport.
