Former prime minister Boris Johnson and his wife Carrie have announced the birth of their third child together.

Frank Alfred Odysseus Johnson was born on July 5.

The baby is the first born since Johnson left Downing Street last year after losing the confidence of the Conservative Party.

Mrs Johnson, 35, shared a picture of the baby on social media on Tuesday.

The former Tory Party advisor wrote: “A week of Frankie.

“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,” she wrote.

“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.

“Now, can anyone recommend any good series/box sets to binge while breastfeeding?

“Time for a drink.”

The pair had their first child, Wilfred, on April 29, 2020 during the early months of the Covid crisis.

They married in May 2021 at Westminster Cathedral, with daughter Romy born on December 9 in the same year.

Johnson, 59, has at least seven children, although he has frequently obfuscated when asked exactly how many.

He is known to have four children with his ex-wife Marina Wheeler and a child, born in 2009, as a result of an affair with art consultant Helen Macintyre.
