UK Prime Minister Fiancee welcomes baby boy
UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson and his fiancé Carrie Symonds have welcomed a baby boy on Wednesday Morning, 29 April, 2020.
“The Prime Minister and Ms Symonds are thrilled to announce the birth of a healthy baby boy at a London hospital earlier this morning” a spokesperson said. “Both mother and baby are doing very well.”
It has been a tumultuous month for Johnson, who was admitted to intensive care with coronavirus on April 6.
On Monday he returned to work urging the British public to “contain their impatience” in an address to the nation in Downing Street.
Johnson has four adult children with his ex-wife Marina Wheeler. The couple announced the beginning of divorce proceedings in 2018.
Symonds moved in to Downing Street with Johnson when he became prime minister in July last year.
In February Symonds announced the couple’s engagement in an Instagram post saying “many of you already know but for my friends that still don’t, we got engaged at the end of last year… and we’ve got a baby hatching early summer. Feel incredibly blessed.”
