Boris Johnson announces birth of son
Breaking news: Prime Minister Boris Johnson and partner Carrie Symonds have announced the birth of their son.
A spokeswoman for the PM said both mother and baby are “doing very well.”
“The prime minister and Ms Symonds are thrilled to announce the birth of a healthy baby boy at a London hospital earlier this morning,” she added.
“The PM and Ms Symonds would like to thank the fantastic NHS maternity team.”
Boris Johnson, 55, became the most high-profile world leader to contract COVID-19 one month ago. He spent a week in the hospital, including three nights in intensive care, admitting in a video message after he was discharged that things “could have gone either way”.
After a fortnight recovering at his countryside retreat of Chequers, he returned to Downing Street on Sunday night. On Monday morning he chaired the daily government coronavirus meeting, “and will now be resuming full duties”, his spokesman said.
