He may only be nine-months-old, but Boris Johnson’s son already appears to have inherited his father’s unruly blonde hair do.

In a photograph taken on Thursday, baby Wilfred’s bright blonde hair could be seen spilling over the top of his buggy as mother Carrie Symonds pushed him around Westminster.

While the couple have not yet shared any photographs of their son – who was born on April 29th 2020 at the height of the first Covid crisis in the UK – with the public, it’s obvious to see he’s inherited his dad’s mop of thick blonde hair.

Speaking exclusively to FEMAIL, celebrity hairstylist James Johnson said: ‘Boris’ son seems to have inherited his textured hair. I also love the colour! 

‘Other than the lovely natural wave his hair holds, people also spend hours and a fortune in the salon trying to achieve this shade of blonde – lucky lad!’

The photo comes just days after Boris Johnson unveiled a DIY haircut carefully crafted by Carrie Symonds – but his fiancee appeared to have gone carefully after previous unkind claims she must have used a ruler and shears to trim his unruly fringe.

The Prime Minister’s shaggy shock of blonde hair has been branded a ‘national crisis’ and with six weeks until hairdressers open again his partner is claimed to have had a go herself inside No 10.

Boris Johnson had his hair styled to one side as he left Downing Street for Prime Minister’s Questions on Wednesday, with experts claiming Carrie has given him the lightest of trims, dragged a brush through it and tamed it with some hair products.

But the smarter look didn’t last, with his thatch of hair messed up again by the time he appeared in the Commons around ten minutes later.

Critics have pondered if Carrie modelled his look on the couple’s rescue dog Dilyn

Previously critics have said that his more severe ‘pudding bowl’ trims during three lockdowns have been a fashion ‘crime’ and pondered if Carrie modelled his look on the couple’s rescue dog Dilyn.

Others have joked that it has been sticking up so much recently it looks like Mr Johnson had ‘brushed his hair with a balloon’.

It was Piers Morgan who revealed that Carrie Symonds had given Prime Minister Boris Johnson a much-needed haircut.

The ITV star compared Mr Johnson to scarecrow Worzel Gummidge after the Prime Minister unveiled his ultra-cautious roadmap out of England’s third lockdown to MPs and the public.

Under No10’s plans to ease the national shutdown, hairdressers, salons and nail bars will remain shut until April 12 ‘at the earliest’ – provided coronavirus cases, hospitalisations and deaths continue to fall.

Piers Morgan had claimed that Carrie Symonds had acquired scissors to cut Boris’ hair following Tuesday’s statement to the Commons and Downing Street press conference to the nation.

But the Good Morning Britain host announced on Twitter that the Prime Minister had had his shaggy blonde locks cut by his partner ‘for the first time’.

‘EXCLUSIVE: I can reveal to the world that Prime Minister @BorisJohnson has today had his hair cut by his partner @carriesymonds for the first time,’ he tweeted. Downing Street declined to comment.

In December last year, Boris Johnson apologised for his haircut and insisted he does comb it after he was accused of being too scruffy to represent the country.

Speaking on a trip to wet and windy Greater Manchester the Prime Minister, whose hair looked unbrushed, told reporters he ‘does his best’ with his shock of blonde hair.
