Boris Johnson and his wife Carrie have announced the birth of their son and shared his unique name.
Their baby boy was born on 5 July, around two months after they announced their baby news in May.
Carrie, 35, took to Instagram on Tuesday (11 July) - almost a week after her son's arrival - to share his name, nickname and her first few days with him.
"A week of Frankie," the caption begins, alongside a red heart emoji.
"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.
"Now, can anyone recommend any good series/box sets to binge while breastfeeding?"
She finished her post with: "Time for a drink."
On 19 May, Carrie shocked the world by revealing she was eight months pregnant with the couple's third child.
She revealed on Instagram that the baby would arrive in 'just a few weeks'. The Johnsons have two other children: Wilfred, three, and Romy, one.
Carrie shared: “I’ve felt pretty exhausted for much of the last 8 months but we can’t wait to meet this little one. Wilf is v excited about being a big brother again and has been chattering about it nonstop. Don’t think Romy has a clue what’s coming … She soon will!”
Before conceiving Romy, the couple sadly suffered a miscarriage.
“At the beginning of the year, I had a miscarriage which left me heartbroken," Carrie said at the time.
“I feel incredibly blessed to be pregnant again but I’ve also felt like a bag of nerves.
"Fertility issues can be really hard for many people, particularly when on platforms like Instagram it can look like everything is only ever going well.
“I found it a real comfort to hear from people who had also experienced loss so I hope that in some very small way sharing this might help others too.”
The former Prime Minister has at least eight children now, including Frank. His other children - who are of public knowledge - include Lara, Milo, Cassia and Theodore, who he shares with ex-wife Marina Wheeler; Stephanie after an affair in 2009, plus his three children with Carrie.
The 59-year-old has previously dodged questions about how many children he has fathered.
