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

The newborn is the sixth child for Boris, who has four adult children with ex-wife Marina, Lara Lettice, Cassia Peaches, Theodore Apollo and Milo Arthur, and believed to have fathered a fifth child with property developer Helen Macintyre.

Boris, who was recently hospitalised with coronavirus, and Carrie announced they were expecting their first child together in February.

Senior adviser for US environmental campaign group Oceana Carrie announced a double-whammy of good news on her private Instagram account as she shared a photo of Boris planting a kiss on her cheek and revealed they were engaged as she was expecting a child.

She then wrote in the caption: “Many of you already know but for my friends that still don't, we got engaged at the end of last year… and we've got a baby hatching early summer. Feel incredibly blessed.”

Carrie, who lives at 10 Downing Street with Boris, did not reveal when she was due.

Shortly after the happy announcement, Boris was tested positive for coronavirus and Carrie revealed she had been experiencing symptoms.

Carrie, who herself had not been tested at the time, revealed on Twitter: “I’ve spent the past week in bed with the main symptoms of coronavirus.

“I haven’t needed to be tested and, after seven days of rest, I feel stronger and I’m on the mend.”

She then directed her followers to a link by the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists which gave advice on pregnancy and coronavirus.
