Prime Minister David Cameron's wife Samantha has given birth to a baby girl, a spokesman said Tuesday, making the child only the second born to a serving British premier in more than 160 years.

"The prime minister and Mrs Cameron are delighted to announce the birth of their fourth child, a baby girl," the Downing Street spokesman said.

"Both the baby -- who was born weighing six pounds, one ounce (2.7 kilogrammes) -- and Mrs Cameron are doing very well."

The Camerons already have a daughter, Nancy, six, and a four-year-old son, Arthur. Their first child, Ivan, who had cerebral palsy and severe epilepsy, died suddenly in February last year, aged six.
