Boris Johnson and Carrie Symonds are celebrating the birth of their newborn son and the odds are already circulating on the baby’s name – with an early favourite.
Following the news that the Prime Minister has become a father again on Wednesday morning, and mother and baby are well, the bookies make Wilfred the 5/1 favourite to be the name of choice.
George and Thomas are the next monikers in the betting at 8/1 apiece, or there’s 10/1 on offer Winston gets the nod.
Further afield, Brexit is 1000/1 to be the name of their son.
Jessica O’Reilly of Ladbrokes said: “Since Boris and Carrie announced they were expecting Wilfred had been heavily backed by punters, however, it would be remiss to rule out a baby Winston.”
