Little Wilfred Johnson is most certainly his father’s son as his bright blonde locks take centre stage in this new picture.
The one-year-old’s distinctive barnet beams just like his father’s as he admires the flowers in a beige cardigan and navy striped leggings.
The image was released on the same day the prime minister and Ms Symonds got married in a secret ceremony at Westminster Cathedral.
Mr Johnson, 56, exchanged vows with his 33-year-old partner in front of a handful of close friends and family.
Downing Street has now confirmed the event by releasing an official photo of the happy couple together.
Ms Symonds can be seen in a white dress and floral headband, while Mr Johnson donned a dark suit and blue tie.

A spokesperson said this morning: ‘The Prime Minister and Ms Symonds were married yesterday afternoon in a small ceremony at Westminster Cathedral.
‘The couple will celebrate their wedding with family and friends next summer.’
It is understood Ms Symonds will take her husband’s surname and be known as Carrie Johnson.
Their secret wedding was kept so under wraps that even Downing Street aides did not know until being contacted by the media.
Only a handful of church officials were said to be involved in the preparations and the 30 guests were invited at the last minute.
Tourists vising the cathedral – just over a mile away from Downing Street – were blissfully unaware it was about to host the special wedding.
Staff said the church was going into lockdown and cleared them out at about 1.30pm.
Half an hour later, a limo carrying the bride arrived.
Staff members confirmed to The Sun that the lockdown was a rouse for the nuptials.

One member of staff said: ‘Carrie looked beautiful. She had a long white dress with no veil. She looked made up.
‘He was extremely happy as you can imagine, he looked very smart, and was in a very dapper suit.
‘She came down the aisle and he didn’t take his eyes off her. They read each other’s vows and then they shared a kiss. They looked besotted.’
Mr Johnson is the first Prime Minister to marry in office since Lord Liverpool married Mary Chester in 1822.
The PM reportedly proposed while on holiday in Mustique shortly after his landslide election win in December 2019.
Young Wilfred and the PM’s father Stanley Johnson were both at the ceremony.
