UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s office says his wife Carrie has given birth to a baby girl
LONDON – British Prime Minister Boris Johnson and his wife Carrie have announced the birth of a baby girl.
The couple said a healthy baby, the couple’s second child together, was born Thursday morning in a London hospital.
“Both mother and daughter are doing very well,” the office said in a statement. “The couple would like to thank the brilliant NHS Maternity Team for all of their care and support.”
The baby is the sister of Wilfred, born in April 2020.
The couple moved in together at 10 Downing St. when Boris Johnson became Prime Minister in 2019, becoming the first unmarried couple to openly live together at the British Prime Minister’s official residence in London.
Boris Johnson, now 57, and Carrie, who is 33, tied the knot in May 2021, in what is their first marriage and their third.
Johnson has at least five other children from previous relationships.
The new baby is the fourth born to a sitting British Prime Minister this century. The wives of executives Tony Blair and David Cameron also had babies while their husbands were in office.
