Boris and Carrie Johnson announce birth of healthy baby girl

Prime Minister Boris Johnson and wife Carrie have announced ‘the birth of a healthy baby girl at a London hospital earlier today’.

In a previous post on Instagram announcing the pregnancy, Mrs Johnson, 33, said she had a miscarriage at the start of the year and felt ‘incredibly blessed to be pregnant again but I’ve also felt like a bag of nerves’.

The couple welcomed their first child, Wilfred, in April last year. He was born a month after the Prime Minister was treated in hospital for Covid 19.

Mrs Johnson shared details of the pregnancy and miscarriage on her social media account and encouraged others to openly talk about their fertility issues.

She said: ‘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.’

In her post, she hinted that the baby was due before Christmas, saying that they were ‘hoping for our rainbow baby’ for the festive period.

The couple have been together since 2018, when Mr Johnson was foreign secretary, and moved into Downing Street when he took over from Theresa May as PM in 2019.

After getting engaged in late 2019, they married on May 29 this year in a secret ceremony at Westminster Cathedral, attended by thirty guests.

Mr Johnson, 57, has previously been married twice before and has six children already.
