“I am very pleased to announce the birth of our daughter, Olivia, on Thursday 23rd May at St Thomas’ Hospital, London. She weighed a healthy 6lb 9oz and is a true joy. My wife, Kati is doing well and is taking to motherhood with enthusiasm.
“It was fortuitous that the birth coincided with the start of the short Whitsun break which has allowed me additional time to spend with our new arrival.
“I pay a huge thanks to the amazing medical staff at the hospital who were simply incredible. Our NHS is truly a remarkable institution.”
