Baby Wilfred created a sweet Christmas card for 89-year-old Betty, who suffers with Parkinson’s, which was made up of a hand-painted reindeer.

In a photo, Boris' son could be seen with the same wild blonde hair as his famous dad as he focussed on his artwork, wearing reindeer leggings and a cosy grey cardigan featuring London guards.

Boris and Carrie only announced their engagement and pregnancy news in February, before welcoming their first child together in April.

Boris and Carrie's son Wilfred has begun crawling!

Shortly after Wilfred was born, the pair revealed the special meaning behind his name. Sharing a photo of herself cradling her newborn on her private Instagram account, Carrie revealed that the moniker pays a fitting tribute to their grandfathers and the doctors who helped save Boris' life after he contracted COVID-19.

Captioning the sweet image, Carrie wrote: "Introducing Wilfred Lawrie Nicholas Johnson born on 29.04.20 at 9am. Wilfred after Boris’ grandfather, Lawrie after my grandfather, Nicholas after Dr Nick Price and Dr Nick Hart – the two doctors that saved Boris’ life last month. Thank you so, so much to the incredible NHS maternity team at UCLH that looked after us so well. I couldn’t be happier. My heart is full."
