British Prime Minister Boris Johnson and his partner Carrie Symonds have announced the birth of a “healthy baby boy” at a London hospital.

Both mother and baby are doing very well after the birth early on Wednesday, their spokesman said.

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

The couple announced at the end of February that they were expecting a baby in “early summer” and they had got engaged at the end of last year.

Congratulations to the couple!
