Scottish Tory leader Ruth Davidson gives birth to boy
She and her partner Jen Wilson were 'delighted' by the infant's safe arrival in Edinburgh.
Scottish Conservative leader Ruth Davidson has given birth to a baby boy.
She announced her and her partner Jen Wilson were "delighted" by the infant's safe arrival at Edinburgh Royal Infirmary this morning.
The baby, named Finn Paul Davidson, weighed in at 10lb 1.5oz.
Davidson said: "Jen and I are delighted at baby Finn's safe arrival.
"A huge thank you to the medical team at the ERI and the midwives at Leith Community Treatment Centre for looking after all three of us so well throughout the pregnancy and birth.
"I can't wait to get this little one home to enjoy some family time together."
Ms Wilson said: "It was wonderful to welcome baby Finn into the world this morning. He is beautiful and already very loved.
"Ruth did brilliantly and Finn clearly has his mother's lungs on him!"
The couple, who live in Edinburgh, announced earlier this year that they were due to become parents after an IVF procedure had been successful.
Ms Davidson, 39, has been on maternity leave since the Scottish Parliament's October recess.
She previously said starting a family would not change her political commitment or her plans to lead the Scottish Conservatives into the 2021 Holyrood elections.
She and Ms Wilson, who have been together since 2014, plan to share maternity leave, with Ms Davidson's deputy Jackson Carlaw holding the fort until her return to work.
Mr Carlaw said: "This is wonderful news. On behalf of the whole party, I'd like to offer my congratulations to Ruth and Jen on becoming proud parents to baby Finn.
"Everyone in the Scottish Conservatives will be delighted for them both and, of course, desperate to meet the new arrival.
"In the meantime, I hope Ruth, Jen and Finn get some private family time together at this most special time. We wish them all the best."
First Minister Nicola Sturgeon wrote on Twitter: "Many congratulations to you both. I wish wee Finn a lifetime of happiness."
