Aylesbury Town Mayor Tom Hunter-Watts has become a proud father following the birth of his son on Monday night.
The mayor’s wife Ayse gave birth to their son at Stoke Mandeville Hospital at 10.40pm.
The little boy, named Emre, is said to be doing well.
The mayor’s personal assistant Sue Carpenter said: “The mayor has confirmed that his wife and son are both doing well and that Emre is a very healthy and well behaved little chap.”
Mrs Carpenter could not confirm whether this is the first time a serving town mayor’s wife has had a baby while he is in office.
She said: “We are all very excited and really chuffed for them and can’t wait to see a picture of the new baby.”
The Bucks Herald will bring you pictures of the new VIP as soon as we have them!
