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

The child, which is 32-year-old Symonds' first child and thought to be Johnson's sixth, was expected in 'early summer'.

Johnson returned to work on Monday following an absence of more than three weeks whilst he recovered from symptoms of coronavirus.

He spent several days in intensive care as a result of the illness, but issued a statement upon his return in which he said there were signs the country was 'turning the tide' on the virus that has drastically changed life for all of us.
