The couple named their son, born Wednesday, Wilfred Lawrie Nicholas – a nod to Nick Price and Nick Hart, the two intensive care doctors who treated Johnson.
“I couldn’t be happier. My heart is full, “said Symonds, Reuters reported.
The 55-year-old Prime Minister congratulated the doctors at St Thomas Hospital, saying that “they had saved my life, without a doubt.”
“We are honored and humbled to have been recognized in this way,” Price told the newspaper. “We wish the new family good health and happiness.”
