London – British Prime Minister David Cameron took a few minutes out of his paternity leave to introduce his new daughter to Britain's media.

Florence Rose Endellion Cameron was cradled in the arms of her mother, Samantha, for her first public appearance on Friday on the steps of 10 Downing Street.

The little girl was born August 24 while the family was on vacation.

Her third name is taken from the town of St Endellion in south western England, close to where the Camerons were staying.

The family have two other children, Elwen and Nancy. Their eldest son Ivan, who had epilepsy and cerebral palsy, died last year aged 6.

Florence is not the first infant to live at Downing Street.

Cherie Blair gave birth to baby Leo in 2000 while her husband, former prime minister Tony Blair, was in office.
