British Prime Minister Borris Johnson and his wife Carrie on Thursday announced the birth of their “healthy baby girl” at a London hospital.

“The prime minister and Mrs Johnson are delighted to announce the birth of a healthy baby girl at a London hospital earlier today,” a statement read. “Both mother and daughter are doing very well. The couple would like to thank the brilliant NHS maternity team for all their care and support.”

This is the couple’s second child and the prime minister’s seventh. The couple’s son, Wilfrid Lawrie Nicholas Johnson, was born in April 2020. 

“Both mother and daughter are doing very well. The couple would like to thank the brilliant NHS maternity team for all their care and support,” a spokesperson for the couple said.

The couple were married in a secret ceremony in May this year. 

Opposition Labour Party leader Keir Starmer sent the family congratulations, adding "Wishing your family health and happiness."

This moment of good news for the Johnson family comes after a tumultuous week for the prime minister.

On Wednesday, his adviser Allegra Stratton resigned following backlash from a leaked video that showed her laughing and joking about holding a Christmas party during the peak of COVID-19 lockdown.

Johnson apologized for the video that same day and launched an investigation to uncover what happened last Christmas and determine whether any COVID restrictions were broken.
