In a statement, 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.”
Wilson added: “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 announcement of Finn’s birth was met with support from across the political spectrum.
Many congratulations to you, Jen and Finn! Wishing you all every happiness for the future. https://t.co/UlFiKugt6V
