UK Prime Minister, Boris Johnson and Wife Carrie Welcome Baby Girl at London Hospital
EKO HOT BLOG reports that UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson and his wife Carrie welcomed a healthy baby girl on Thursday morning, December 9, months after revealing that they were expecting their second child.
Boris and his wife announced the birth of a “healthy baby girl” at a hospital in London.
A spokesperson for the couple said;
“Both mother and daughter are doing very well. The couple would like to thank the brilliant NHS maternity team for all their care and support.”
Wilfred, their first child, was born in April of last year, while Johnson was recovering from a major illness caused by COVID-19.
Johnson, 57, and the former Carrie Symonds, 33, married in May, her first and his third marriage. With his second wife, the barrister Marina Wheeler, he has four other children, all of whom are now in their twenties. After 25 years of marriage, the couple’s divorce was finalized in 2020.
He also has at least one child from a previous relationship. Johnson has repeatedly refused to say precisely how many children he has fathered, although in an interview with NBC in September he affirmed he had six.
The new baby is the fourth born to a sitting British prime minister this century. The wives of Tony Blair and David Cameron also had babies while their husbands were in office.
The birth comes amid a tumultuous week for the prime minister who is under intense pressure after the Daily Mirror revealed that Christmas parties were held at Downing Street while London was under lockdown restrictions.
Since the story broke, a video of the Prime Minister’s then press secretary Allegra Stratton joking about how to describe the Christmas party at a mock press conference has gone viral. Ms Stratton resigned on Wednesday December 8, delivering a tearful statement to media outside her home in which she said she would “regret the remarks for the rest of my days”.
Also on Thursday morning, the Conservatives were fined £17,800 over a controversial donation that helped cover the lavish refurbishments to the couple’s Downing Street flat.
