Boris and Carrie Johnson have announced the birth of their third child together. Frank Alfred Odysseus Johnson was born last Wednesday, with Carrie announcing his arrival on Instagram today:
“Welcome to the world Frank Alfred Odysseus Johnson born 5th July at 9.15am. (Can you guess which name my husband chose?! )… Am loving every minute of the sleepy baby bubble. Seeing my older two embrace their new brother with such joy and excitement has been the most wonderful thing to see. We are all very smitten. Thank you so much to the incredible NHS maternity team at UCLH. They really are the most amazing, caring people. I feel such immense gratitude…”
Carrie Johnson has announced she and Boris are expecting their third child together. In an Instagram post shared this afternoon, Carrie revealed the baby is due in the next few weeks:
Boris has congratulated Liz Truss on a “decisive win” in the leadership race:
“I know she has the right plan to tackle the cost of living crisis, unite our party and continue the great work of uniting and levelling up our country. Now is the time for all Conservatives to get behind her 100 per cent.”
It’s not like Boris stayed neutral throughout the race. This morning the BBC’s Chris Mason reported that Liz visited Boris at Chequers to ask his advice on how to be PM.
Rishi has tweeted, through obviously gritted teeth, “It’s right we now unite behind the new PM, Liz Truss, as she steers the country through difficult times.”
Meanwhile, Carrie took to Instagram to wish Liz and her family well, alongside a photo of her, Boris, Wilf and Romy stepping through the No. 10 door into Downing Street for the last time.
“I expect Wilf and Romy won’t remember it but they’ve had an incredibly happy start to their lives growing up here.”
Hopefully they’ll remember the wallpaper rather than the broken slide…
The Metropolitan Police have privately assured the Prime Minister and Carrie that they will not be receiving any further fixed penalty notices following the conclusion of their investigation. Cabinet Secretary Simon Case has not yet received a fine either, although he hasn’t received final confirmation that no action will be taken…
UPDATE: No fine for Case, either.
“Prime Minister Boris Johnson and wife Carrie have announced the birth of a healthy baby girl at a London hospital earlier today”. It’s all go today…
