Boris Johnson’s new baby girl has an amazing head of dark hair – very different from her dad’s famous blond mop.
In photos released of the Prime Minister, his wife Carrie and the latest addition to their family, baby Romy is seen with thick, dark brown hair.
The pictures show Mr and Mrs Johnson holding video calls from the PM’s country estate at Chequers, with Carrie holding baby Romy wrapped in a blanket.
They were speaking to NHS vaccination heroes administering millions of Covid booster jabs.
Family dog Dilyn also lies on the sofa by their side in the images released at Christmas.
In the background, Christmas cards were visible as well as a framed sign saying Wilf and Romy, the names of their two children.

Mrs Johnson earlier revealed the pair’s second child’s full name as Romy Iris Charlotte Johnson.
She said Romy was named after her aunt Rosemary, while the couple had picked Iris from the Greek for rainbow.
This could be a reference to the fact Mrs Johnson previously spoke about having had a miscarriage and a baby born after a miscarriage, stillborn, or neonatal death is sometimes known as a rainbow baby.
Romy is the pair’s second child, after their son Wilfred was born in April last year.
He was named Wilfred Lawrie Nicholas Johnson partly in tribute to two doctors, Nick Hart and Nick Price, who helped save the Prime Minister’s life when he was admitted to hospital with Covid-19 earlier that month.
In a post on Instagram, accompanied by a photograph of the two children next to a Christmas tree, Mrs Johnson said: “Wilf has been stroking Romy’s hair, giving big kisses and playing with his matchbox cars right next to her crib, just in case she feels like joining in too.”
She added: “Thank you so much to the amazing maternity staff at UCLH for looking after us so well. We are so, so grateful.”
