Boris Johnson, 55, and his fiancée Carrie Symonds, 31 have announced the birth of their first child, a son.
A statement released by the couple’s spokesperson said both mother and baby were said to be “doing very well” after the birth in an NHS London hospital on Wednesday morning.
A Taurus baby
The date, April 29, 2020, indicates the baby’s star sign will be Taurus, but what does this mean for his future?
“Taurus [is] so readily associated with money and wealth it is an astrological cliché,” renowned astrologer Justin Toper told Yahoo UK. “In truth, Taurus loves the process of organising the physical assets of the earth, whether or not it makes them rich.”
Stability is really important too.
“Taurus is also a very physical sign,” he said, “which means plenty of affectionate touching and an intense response to anything that's nice to touch, beautiful to look at, delicious to taste or lovely to smell.”
Toper went on to reveal that Taureans can often be possessive and stubborn, saying: “You may have heard about the famous Taurean possessiveness. This is indeed a possessive sign. Not to mention stubborn! But for loyalty, steadfastness, and calmness, they are hard to beat.”
According to Astrology.com, children born in the Taurus window have other certain traits in common, including patience, love of comfort, frugality, and practicality.
Babycentre.co.uk has also looked into the characteristics of each baby star sign and says Taurus babies are traditionally good in nature and likely to be sweet, affectionate and cuddly.
“He is also likely to be strong and cheerful,” the site says.
As well as being affectionate, Taurus babies also tend to have a love for the great outdoors.
“Children of the Bull experience the world through their senses,” the site continues. “They like the way things taste, feel, sound and smell.”
And they also love their food.
Another interesting insight from the parenting site is that those born in the Taurus star sign are often practical and good with money, but they love to feel safe.
“Some Taurus children are clingy, while others develop an attachment to an item that reminds them of home, like a cuddly toy,” the site says.
And Taurus children don’t like to be rushed. “In fact, they're pretty slow,” the site says.
Zodiacsigns-horoscopes.com reiterates that Taurus children can be highly emotional, but also very loving.
“They take a little while to warm up to new things because they don’t like change,” the site says. “They can be emotionally sensitive at times, especially when they aren’t getting their way.”
Another characteristic is stubbornness. “But that just makes them more determined to complete their goals.”
Other famous Taureans
The PM’s son is in pretty good company as a Taurus.
With Princess Charlotte born on May 2, 2015, and Prince Louis born April 23, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have two little royal bulls on her hands.
And they aren’t the only members of the Royal Family to be raising a young bull (well former members of the royal family). Born 6 May, 2019, Archie Harrison, the first child of Meghan Markle and Prince Harry, is also a Taurus.
Prince Harry’s uncle, Earl Spencer, brother to the late Princess Diana, pointed out Archie’s zodiac sign in his congratulatory message on Twitter.
“Really very lovely news today — many, many, congratulations! (Good to have another Taurean in the family....),” he wrote.
Taureans seem to be commonplace in the Royal Family – the Queen, born 21 April, also shares the star sign.
