Boris Johnson has been pictured with his son Wilfred for the first time since the baby’s birth.
The prime minister is shown looking at the 11-week-old baby in the arms of his partner Carrie Symonds.
Downing Street released the images of the couple taking part in a Zoom call with midwives who cared for her during the birth at University College Hospital.
Wilfred Lawrie Nicholas Johnson was born on 29 April, two weeks after the prime minister left hospital to continue his recovery from coronavirus.
Ms Symonds announced on Instagram their son was named after their grandfathers and the two doctors that saved Mr Johnson’s life, Dr Nick Price and Dr Nick Hart.
She added: ”Thank you so, so much to the incredible NHS maternity team at UCLH that looked after us so well. I couldn’t be happier. My heart is full.”
Mr Johnson, 55, has said he will take paternity leave later in the year.
He has at least five other children, including four with his ex-wife, Marina Wheeler. They were formally divorced earlier this year.
During a radio interview with LBC, presenter Nick Ferrari asked the prime minister how many children he had and if he was “fully involved” in their lives.
The prime minister responded: “I love my children very much but they are not standing at this election. I’m not therefore going to comment on them.”
