Boris Johnson and his fiancée Carrie Symonds have named their son Wilfred Lawrie Nicholas Johnson.

Wilfred is a tribute their grandfathers – and Nicholas to the two doctors who helped save the PM’s life.

Ms Symonds, 32, posted an Instagram picture captioned – “couldn’t be happier” and that her “heart is full”.

She also praised the maternity team at University College Hospital in London, who “looked after us so well”.

Ms Symonds wrote in her Instagram post:

“Introducing Wilfred Lawrie Nicholas Johnson born on 29.04.20 at 9am.

Wilfred after Boris’ grandfather, Lawrie after my grandfather, Nicholas after Dr Nick Price and Dr Nick Hart – the two doctors that saved Boris’ life last month.

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.”
