Carrie Johnson Gives Birth: Boris Johnson And Wife Announce Arrival Of Second Child

Boris Johnson's wife Carrie Johnson has welcomed their second child.

The Prime Minister and Carrie shared the news in a statement on Thursday.

The couple are already parents to son Wilfred, after welcoming him in April 2020.

Boris and Carrie announced they were expecting another child in July, revealing at the time that they had suffered a miscarriage before their 'rainbow baby' was conceived.

“At the beginning of the year, I had a miscarriage which left me heartbroken," Carrie said at the time.

“I feel incredibly blessed to be pregnant again but I’ve also felt like a bag of nerves.

"Fertility issues can be really hard for many people, particularly when on platforms like Instagram it can look like everything is only ever going well.

“I found it a real comfort to hear from people who had also experienced loss so I hope that in some very small way sharing this might help others too.”

Boris has six children who are public knowledge: Lara, Milo, Cassia and Theodore who he shares with ex-wife Marina Wheeler; Stephanie after an affair in 2009; and Wilfred with his new wife Carrie [formerly Symonds].

The 57-year-old PM has previously dodged questions about how many children he has fathered, with the subject becoming an area of interest about the Conservative Party Leader during the general election in 2019.

However, he recently revealed it during a trip to New York.

The presenter said: “Since you’ve become Prime Minister, you’ve become a father again, you’re expecting another baby you have six kids…”

Boris replied: “Yes,” before launching into life as a busy father and British leader.

“It’s fantastic, it’s fantastic, it’s a lot of work, I’ll tell you that much, but I love it, I absolutely love it. And I change a lot of nappies, in case anybody… I do."

Congrats to Boris and Carrie on their new arrival!

We're sure there are going to be a lot more nappy changes where that came from...
