Ed Miliband registers the birth of baby Samuel

Labour leader Ed Miliband does "two for the price of one" and registers both sons at the same time

Earlier this year, Ed Miliband revealed he had been too busy to register himself as the dad of his eldest son, 18-month-old Daniel, reports The Telegraph.


But he has now registered himself as the father of newborn Samuel and his elder son Daniel.

As Ed and Justine are not married, he wasn’t automatically put on Daniel’s birth certificate.  Instead he needed to register himself in person at his local Town Hall, or sign a form declaring himself as the dad.


Ed’s partner Justine Thornton gave birth to the couple’s second son last week, calling him Samuel Stewart Thornton Miliband.
