    The young Johnson became Boris' sixth child - and third son - and became the latest new baby born to a serving Prime Minister. Wilfred followed Tony Blair's son Leo in 2000 and David Cameron's daughter Florence in 2010 as newborns in Downing Street. The tot also became stepbrother to Boris' five other children.
