Boris Johnson and partner announce birth of baby boy
Boris Johnson, returned to work Monday after recovering from COVID-19, which had left him severely ill in intensive care during peak of UK's coronavirus outbreak
Published in Daily News Egypt on 29 - 04 - 2020

The British prime minister's partner Carrie Symonds has given birth to a “healthy baby boy,” Boris Johnson office has revealed. British Prime Minister Boris Johnson fiancee, Carrie Symonds, gave birth to a baby boy at a London hospital on Wednesday morning.
The baby, whose name has not yet been announced, arrived slightly earlier than had expected.
“The Prime Minister and Ms Symonds are thrilled to announce the birth of a healthy baby boy at a London hospital earlier this morning,” a spokeswoman said. “Both mother and baby are doing very well.”
The spokeswoman added, “The PM and Ms Symonds would like to thank the fantastic NHS maternity team.”
Coronavirus could interfere with paternity leave
Johnson, 55, returned to work on Monday after recovering from COVID-19, which had left him severely ill in intensive care during the peak of the UK's coronavirus outbreak.
His fiancee Symonds, 32, had also been infected with the coronavirus and contracted COVID-19 earlier this month. Unlike Johnson, she experienced mild symptoms.
The prime minister had suggested before the coronavirus outbreak hit the UK that he had planned to take paternity leave after the birth. It was not clear whether Johnson would do so following the global crisis.
Political friends and foes send regards
Health Secretary Matt Hancock, who faces mounting pressure due to his ministry's response to the coronavirus pandemic, tweeted: “So thrilled for Boris and Carrie. Wonderful to have a moment of unalloyed joy!”
Keir Stammer, leader of the main opposition Labour party, posted his congratulations on twitter.
Scottish National Party leader Nicola Sturgeon, a prominent critic of Johnson, tweeted: “Some good news – sending congratulations to Carrie and the PM. And wishing health and happiness to the wee one.”
Symonds had announced her pregnancy in February, after the UK officially departed from the European Union on January 31. British media dubbed the child a “Brexit baby.”
Johnson, who separated in 2018 from his wife, Marina Wheeler, has four other children.
