There were no details of the baby's weight, exact location or time of the birth, although Boris is thought to have been present at Wilfred's arrival.

The couple had been through a tough time together prior to the birth, as Boris has been extremely unwell with covid, spending three nights in intensive care and Carrie had also experienced symptoms and taken to bed for a week.

Downing Street announced that Boris would take a "short period" of paternity leave at some point later that year, due to his commitments leading the country through the pandemic.

Carrie announced her pregnancy back in July 2021 on Instagram, however, in a heartbreaking confession, she admitted that she had previously suffered a miscarriage and that Romy would be her rainbow baby.

She wrote: "Hoping for our rainbow baby this Christmas. At the beginning of the year, I had a miscarriage which left me heartbroken. I feel incredibly blessed to be pregnant again but I’ve also felt like a bag of nerves.

"Fertility issues can be really hard for many people, particularly when on platforms like Instagram it can look like everything is only ever going well."
