Prime Minister David Cameron and Wife Samantha Welcome Baby Girl

Now it’s Barack and Michelle’s turn: British Prime Minister David Cameron and his wife Samantha announced the birth of their fourth child, a baby girl, on Tuesday. The birth came as a bit of a surprise, as Samantha was not due for another month and the family was vacationing in Cornwall. Weighing 6 lbs., 1 oz., the Camerons had not yet named the child, but said her name will “have to have something Cornish in the middle.” The Cameron's first child Ivan, who had severe epilepsy and cerebral palsy, died last January at age 6. The newborn child is only the second born to a serving prime minister in 150 years; the other was Leo, the son of Tony and Cherie Blair.
