HE may be used to sleepless nights fretting about domestic politics and the issues over Spain.

But Gibraltar’s Chief Minister Fabian Picardo has had an altogether more pressing issue to deal with in recent weeks following the birth of his son.

The Rock’s leader became a father for the first time on April 15 after wife Justine gave birth to Sebastian Picardo, weighing 8lb 14oz.

On juggling paperwork with changing nappies, Picardo told the Olive Press: “My experience as a daddy has been at once the hardest and the most fun thing I have ever done.”

Speaking to the paper in February the Chief Minister, who recently celebrated his 40th birthday, described his impending role as a dad as ‘an exciting time’.

Dismissing the idea he had left it late, he added: “My dad had me when he was 55, so in my family we all start late.”
