Boris Johnson admits he feared he'd never meet his son during coronavirus illness

The prime minister had been out of hospital for less than three weeks before his fiancé, Carrie Symonds, gave birth to their son, Wilfred Lawrie Nicholas Johnson, on 29 April. In an interview with The Sun On Sunday he revealed he was worried he’d never meet his son after being transferred to ICU in a bid to battle COVID-19. Alongside the photo, Symonds wrote: “Introducing Wilfred Lawrie Nicholas Johnson born on 29.04.20 at 9am. My heart is full.” Symonds took part in the clap for key workers that takes place every Thursday at 8pm. In her first tweet post-birth, she wrote: “Clapping again for our tremendous carers tonight and wishing hero @captaintommoore a very happy birthday.
