One more child for Boris Johnson, at least the eighth


Known for his repeated marriages and affairs, former British Prime Minister Boris Johnson will again become a father: the future baby announced Friday by his wife Carrie will be the couple's third child, but at least the eighth for the ex-leader.

“A new member will be joining the team in just a few weeks (…) We can't wait to meet this little one,” posted Carrie Johnson, 35, on the social network Instagram, under a photo showing the hand of one of her other children placed on her rounded belly.

This will be the third child for the couple, who have been married since 2021, following the births of Wilfred in April 2020, and Romy in December 2021, when Boris Johnson was still prime minister.

Boris Johnson, 58 , is also the father of four other children (two boys and two girls) with his second wife, lawyer Marina Wheeler. The ex-prime minister was also recognized as the father of another daughter, from an extra-marital relationship.

In September 2021, shortly before Romy's birth, he confirmed on American television network NBC that he had six children at that time, without closing speculation on the real size of his offspring.

He left Downing Street in the summer of 2022, pushed to resignation after a series of scandals. Still an MP, he has since made millions of euros giving speeches and, according to British media, is in the process of buying a nine-bedroom mansion in the countryside near Oxford.
