United Kingdom's Prime Minister Boris Johnson and his third wife Carrie Johnson have announced the birth of their daughter, on Thursday, 9 December.
Carrie gave birth to the baby girl, who is their second child since Boris became prime minister, at a London hospital and Boris was there throughout.
The BBC reported a spokeswoman for the couple confirmed both the new mom and newborn were doing very well and thanked the National Health Service (NHS) team for their care and support.

Borris and his wife walk into hospital
A masked 33-year-old Carrie was accompanied into a side entrance by a bodyguard carrying an overnight bag.
Her husband, 57, wearing a mask and a trademark woolly hat, was flanked by two policemen as he followed her in carrying a suitcase and what appeared to be a Bluetooth speaker.
The couple, who married in May this year, also has a son, Wilfred, who was born in April 2020.
The prime minister's wife had announced the news of the pregnancy on Instagram in July 2021, also revealing that she had suffered a miscarriage some months earlier.
Carrie said she was hoping for a "rainbow baby" in her post and said:
"I feel incredibly blessed to be pregnant again but I've also felt like a bag of nerves."
The couple's wedding took place at Westminster Cathedral earlier this year - making the UK prime minister the first one to marry while in office for nearly 200 years. It was Borris' third marriage, with the prime minister having previously been married to Marina Wheeler with whom he had four children.
He did not have any children with his first wife Allegra Mostyn-Owen.

In other baby news, Briefly News previously reported that a Greensboro-based woman in North Carolina, Dr Susie Troxler, has become a first-time mom after welcoming a miracle baby at age 50.
Dr Susie and her significant other Tony Troxler, 61, told WFMY News that their fertility journey to have a baby began decades ago. Dr Susie started planning soon after she married her husband Tony in 2008.
Speaking to WFMY News about the miracle birth of their baby girl, Dr Susie revealed that soon after they got married, they thought they'd get pregnant like most people.
''When it got to be nine, 10, 11 years, we were like, something is up, and I'm not sure what it is,'' Susie said.
