Boris Johnson & Carrie Symonds announce birth of son

A spokeswoman for the Prime Minister and his Fiancee have said both are doing very well.

It is understood the PM, who has just recovered from coronavirus, was present throughout the birth, which took place in an NHS hospital in London.

“The PM and Ms Symonds would like to thank the fantastic NHS maternity team,” the spokeswoman added.

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 at the end of last year.
