Just had a news flash that Boris and Carrie have been delivered of a son .

I hope I’m wrong and have lost track of time , but it does seem very early ?

I do hope he is okay .

Very many congratulations to them both. flowers

I’ve just seen that too. I thought they said early summer (?) (maybe May) so like you I hope all is well.

I think the baby was due about now gillybob

Congratulations Boris and Carrieflowers.

From me too Teetime I’m picturing the cutest little baby with a mop of crazy blonde hair . smile

It's lovely. Congratulations to them both. All seem to be doing well.

gillybob Wed 29-Apr-20 10:09:41

That kind of hair that you can do nothing with. smile

Any guesses for names ?

Delighted for them both and hope all are well.?

Some good news; no matter what our political affiliations are, the arrival of a baby in these times of Coronavirus is a blessing. He's certainly starting life with some history!

Congratulations, I love a new baby. Good to hear nice news. If the baby has the strong genes of the Johnson family he will be a mini Boris. That fine blonde hair will be cute on a baby, though it gets unruly by the age of about 20! Boris’s dad still has what my mum would call a “shock of hair” and he’s not far off 80. ?

Hector or Winston maybe grin ?

Puzzler61 Wed 29-Apr-20 10:13:19

Gillybob - we had similar thoughts ?

MaizieD Wed 29-Apr-20 10:13:26

How very convenient...

Paternity leave now, I presume?

Glorybee Wed 29-Apr-20 10:14:06

Congratulations to all of them !

Puzzler61 Wed 29-Apr-20 10:14:58

Or Winston - but Winston Johnson is a bit of a tongue teaser so that’s why it’s my 2nd guess.

Congratulations Boris and Carrie flowers

gillybob Wed 29-Apr-20 10:17:24

I was thinking Beau or maybe Jimmy ?

Oopsminty Wed 29-Apr-20 10:20:29

How lovely!

Maybe they'll have a Boris Jr

Another dig MaizieD after your faux pas on another thread?

gillybob Wed 29-Apr-20 10:24:45

Not sure what you mean by how very convenient MazieD confused

kwest Wed 29-Apr-20 10:24:56

How lovely, congratulations to both of them.

Someone suggested Nero which I think is rather apt. Sins of father and all that.

cornergran Wed 29-Apr-20 10:26:08

Also think the baby is a little early, hope he is well and congratulations to them all.
