Boris Johnson baby: PM and wife Carrie announce birth of daughter

BORIS Johnson and wife Carrie have today welcomed their second child after she gave birth to a baby girl.

The couple announced the 33-year-old was pregnant again in July with an adorable Instagram snap of a pram.


It came just two months after they secretly wed in Westminster Cathedral on May 29, 2021.

A statement released today said: "Prime Minister Boris Johnson and wife Carrie have announced “the birth of a healthy baby girl at a London hospital earlier today.

"Both mother and daughter are doing very well. The couple would like to thank the brilliant NHS maternity team for all their care and support."

It is understood Boris, 57, was with Carrie throughout the birth.

The pair haven't revealed the baby's name yet but their first born, Wilfred Lawrie Nicholas Johnson, was named after medics who treated Boris for Covid.

Labour leader Sir Keir Starmer was the first to congratulate the couple after the happy news was revealed.

He said: "Congratulations to Carrie and Boris Johnson on the birth of their daughter.

"Wishing your family health and happiness."

The baby girl is Carrie's second child and the Prime Minister's seventh.

Carrie bravely revealed she had suffered a miscarriage this year that left her "heartbroken".

She opened up about her hopes for her second child as she announced she was pregnant.

The former aide wrote: "Hoping for our rainbow baby this Christmas.

"At the beginning of the year, I had a miscarriage which left me heartbroken.

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

BABY JOY

Carrie gave birth to Wilfred on April 29 – just 16 days after Boris fought for his life in intensive care with Covid.

The curly-haired youngster stole the show at a beach BBQ for G7 world leaders earlier this year.

The latest arrival is sure to be a welcome distraction for the embattled PM, who has been embroiled in a political storm.

Anger is mounting over a video showing aides laughing over a lockdown-busting Christmas bash at No10.

Boris' top aide Allegra Stratton sensationally resigned in tears yesterday after the damning footage was revealed.

The under-fire PM blasted the clip and launched an investigation into the December 18 party, which came as London was plunged into Tier 3 restrictions.

He also issued a grovelling apology in the Commons yesterday and insisted he was "furious" – but doubled down on claims there was no party.

Pressure is now mounting after Sir Keir Starmer called on him to "come clean and apologise".

Boris is also facing a backlash from his own party over his "baffling" Covid Plan B rules.
