– The first photos of Prime Minister, David Cameron, and his wife Samantha’s newborn daughter, Florence Rose Endellion, were released today.
The girl was born by Cesarean section on Tuesday at the Royal Cornwall Hospital in Truro, a month ahead of schedule.
Cameron and his family were on their summer holidays in Cornwall (southwest England) where Samantha felt indisposed and had to be treated at a local hospital. The girl’s mother was discharged from the hospital yesterday and the family confirmed that they will continue on vacation.
For his part, PM Cameron confirmed he will take several days off on parental leave and will be replaced in office by the British Deputy Prime Minister, the Liberal Democrat Nick Clegg.
Florence is the couple’s fourth daughter. Their first son Cameron, Ivan, who suffered a serious brain disease, died in February 2009. The couple also has two other children, Nancy and Arthur.
