Warmest congratulations and good wishes to Nick Clegg and Miriam Gonzalez Durantez on the birth of their third child, Miguel. Here’s the BBC report:

Liberal Democrat leader Nick Clegg’s wife Mirian [sic] has given birth to a son Miguel – their third child. The younger brother for Antonio, seven, and Alberto, four, was born at Kingston Hospital on Sunday. Mother and son are both said to be doing well. …

[Mr Clegg] has said he will take paternity leave, with his deputy Vince Cable to fill in at prime minister’s questions. Mr Clegg’s wife – Miriam Gonzalez Durantez – is a former Middle East expert at the foreign office, whose father was a conservative senator in the Spanish parliament. … When Antonio was born Mr Clegg took a long period of paternity leave so that she could return to work first.
