Boris and Carrie Johnson have named their baby daughter, Romy Iris Charlotte.
The "healthy baby girl" was born last week on December 9, at a London hospital.
Mrs Johnson (nee Symonds) took to Instagram to share the baby name news with her followers.
She wrote: "Romy after my aunt, Rosemary Iris from the Greek, meaning rainbow. Charlotte after Boris’ late mum whom we miss so much."
Speaking to ITV News while on a visit to a vaccination centre in Kent on Thursday afternoon, the Prime Minister confirmed the news to reporters.
The PM did not take an extended period of leave following Romy’s birth as he battles a string of political scandals as well as the spread of the Omicron variant.
Speaking to broadcasters on Thursday, he insisted he would do “whatever I can to protect the public” as daily Covid cases hit a peak of over 78,000 on Wednesday.
He said: “What we’re saying to people is there’s a lot of Omicron around, be careful, exercise caution if you want to avoid isolation, getting unwell, over Christmas.
“Implement Plan B but get boosted now is the fastest route back to normality because the booster does give you an excellent level of protection.”

This is the couple's second child, following the birth of their son, Wilfred Lawrie Nicholas, in April last year.
Wildred was given the middle name of Nicholas as a tribute to two doctors, Nick Hart and Nick Price, who helped saved the PM’s life when he was admitted to hospital with Covid earlier that month.
The pair announced they were expecting their second child together at the end of July, as the environmental campaigner spoke of having a miscarriage earlier in the year.
Mr Johnson also has four children with his barrister ex-wife, Marina Wheeler.
