Boris Johnson and fiancee welcome new baby
UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson and his fiancee Carrie Symonds have announced the birth of their son.
The BBC reports that a spokeswoman for the PM and his partner said both mother and baby are “doing very well.”
The baby was delivered at a London hospital early Wednesday morning.
“The prime minister and Ms Symonds are thrilled to announce the birth of a healthy baby boy at a London hospital earlier this morning,” the spokeswoman said.
“The PM and Ms Symonds would like to thank the fantastic NHS maternity team.”
Mr Johnson, 55, and Ms Symonds, 32, announced in March that they were expecting a baby in “early summer”, and that they had become engaged by the end of last year.
They became the first unmarried couple to move into Downing Street together.
Mr Johnson returned to work on Monday after recovering from coronavirus.
The PM arrived in Downing Street to resume full-time duties after a fortnight recovering from the disease.
He spent a week in hospital, including three nights in intensive care, after being admitted on 5 April.
Ms Symonds also suffered symptoms of the disease.
