Boris Johnson and Carrie Symonds, who were blessed with a baby boy recently, have revealed the name of their newborn son Wilfred Lawrie Nicholas Johnson.
A post on Ms. Symonds Instagram page read: “Introducing Wilfred Lawrie Nicholas Johnson born on 29.04.20 at 9 am. “Wilfred after Boris’ grandfather. Lawrie after my grandfather.” Nicholas after Dr. Nick Price and Dr. Nick Hart – the two doctors that saved Boris’ life last month.” Thank you so, so much to the incredible NHS maternity team at UCLH that looked after us so well.”I couldn’t be happier. My heart is full.”
The name of the baby comes after doctors Dr. Nick Price and Dr. Nick Hart, who saved the life of Boris Johnson from the Corona Virus pandemic. Johnson was the first head of government to announce testing positive for COVID-19 back in March.

On Saturday night, Dr. Nick Price and Dr. Nick Hart said they were “honored and humbled” at Carrie Symonds’ announcement that her baby Wilfred would have a middle name of Nicholas as a mark of gratitude.
The birth came just weeks after Mr. Johnson was discharged from intensive care and a few days after he returned to work on Monday. Ms. Symonds and Mr. Johnson announced at the end of February, they were expecting a baby in “early summer,” and they became engaged at the end of last year.
