A smiling Cherie Blair, the wife of British Prime Minister Tony Blair, said Friday that she had been surprised to learn she was pregnant at age 45 but was "feeling very well, thank you."

Call it a busman's paternity leave. British Prime Minister Tony Blair says that when his 45-year-old wife, Cherie Booth, gives birth to their fourth child next month, he will go into "holiday mode" for a time, canceling public engagements but otherwise running the country. Any parent knows that having a newborn is no holiday, so Blair's announcement Sunday sounded a little implausible. Like having your baby and sleeping too. Or like taking paternity leave and not taking it.
