British Prime Minister Boris Johnson and his girlfriend of two years Carrie Symonds have disclosed they are expecting a baby this summer, and it has surprised everyone as the duo are set to become parents before marriage.
The announcement was made on 29 February 2020, according to Express UK.
The communications and PR guru announced on Instagram that she and Boris got engaged at the end of last year and are expecting their first child together in the summer, adding she felt “incredibly blessed”.
Boris and Carrie made British history last year when they became the first unmarried couple to move into Downing Street, but with the latest news, Downing Street won’t be occupied by an unmarried pair for long.
Taking to her private Instagram account on Saturday, alongside a photograph of herself and Boris, Carrie wrote: I wouldn’t normally post this kind of thing on here but I wanted my friends to find out from me …
“Many of you already know but for my friends that still don’t, we got engaged at the end of last year and we’ve got a baby hatching early summer. Feel incredibly blessed.”
This marriage will be the Prime Minister’s third – after he divorced his first wife in 1993 and is now estranged from second wife Marina Wheeler.
According to the BBC, earlier this month, a court heard that the Prime Minister and Marina Wheeler were preparing to end their marriage after reaching an agreement over money.
Marina and Boris, who have four children together, separated in 2018 after marrying in 1993.
The delay in announcing their engagement could have been sparked by the divorce negotiations between Boris and Marina, considering the Prime Minster popped the question in December 2019.
