Prime Minister Boris Johnson and his fiancee Carrie Symonds have announced the birth of a son.
A spokeswoman for the PM and his partner said both mother and baby are “doing very well”.
It is understood Mr Johnson, who has just recovered from coronavirus, was present throughout the birth, at an NHS hospital in London.
The PM had planned to take paternity leave but Downing Street said he would not be doing so at the moment.
The couple have received messages of congratulation from across the political spectrum, and Mr Johnson’s father Stanley said he was “absolutely delighted” and “thrilled” by the birth of his grandson.
“The PM and Ms Symonds would like to thank the fantastic NHS maternity team,” the PM’s spokeswoman added.
