Process creation

P: 38
When a new process is created using fork,
the child copy gets a exact copy of the parent address space, the files that are opened by the parent, the environment of the parent, the group id, the user id,
of the parent process,

but what about the CPU registers?, what is parent process is using some CPU registers, what will the child process get, it cannot get access to the same CPU registers right?
