BORIS Johnson and his fiancée Carrie Symonds hosted a Covid-secure baptism for their four-month-old son, HOAR can reveal.
Wilfred Lawrie Nicholas Johnson was baptised in front of a few family members and close friends in a poignant but top secret service on Saturday.
But there was no reception for the guests afterwards because the first couple wanted to set a good example to the public when it came to hosting formal events.
A source revealed: “After everything Boris and Carrie have been through this year, baptising Wilfred was a very special moment.
“They shared it with a small number of people and the service was simple but beautiful, with lots of tears and laughter.
‘SPECIAL PRIVATE MOMENT’
“They’re not intending to release photographs as it was a special private moment.”
Planning was focused on the fact the country is in the midst of a pandemic.
Our source added: “It was a priority for Boris and Carrie that the entire baptism was Covid secure.
“There was no reception or party afterwards. Perhaps they’ll have a big celebration whenever they get married.”
Wilfred was born prematurely on April 29, 20 days after his father was in intensive care with coronavirus.
His middle name is a tribute to two doctors called Nick who treated the PM.
Last night, No10 declined to comment on the baptism.
