Boris Johnson and his wife Carrie, who tied the knot on May 29, 2021, welcomed their second child just before Christmas.
The couple’s baby girl was born on December 9, 2021, and is the younger sibling of their first child, Wilfred Lawrie Nicholas Johnson, born on April 29, 2020.
Mr. Johnson, who had resigned as the Prime Minister but stayed in office until autumn 2022, has seven children, including four with his ex-wife Marina Wheeler and one with former mistress Helen Macintyre.
However, the exact number of his children is doubtful, as court documents alluded to a possible eighth child.
In this article, we will look at Mr. Johnson’s past relationships and the current status of his children.
Boris Johnson’s ex-wife Marina Wheeler gave birth to four children, with Lara Lettice being the oldest at 27. Boris and Marina married in 1993 after divorcing Allegra Mostyn-Owen, his first wife.
Lara received her education at Bedales School and obtained a Latin and Comparative Literature degree from the University of St Andrews.
She pursued a fashion and arts journalism career, working as the features editor at SHOWStudio before contributing to Tatler and Vogue.
In a September 2021 feature about body positivity, Lara modeled Rigby & Peller shapewear on the front cover of Tatler, marking a notable milestone in her career.
The PM’s second child with Ms. Wheeler is Milo Arthur Johnson, aged 25. Although he leads a private life, it is said that he attended Westminster School and later moved on to study at the School of Oriental and African Studies. According to authentic sources, he graduated in 2014.
Cassia Peaches Johnson, aged 23, is the PM’s third child with Mrs. Wheeler. However, there is little information available about her personal life.
Theodore Apollo, aged 21, is the PM’s fourth and youngest child with Mrs. Wheeler. However, there is no information available about his personal life.
Stephanie Macintyre is Mr. Johnson’s fifth child, with art consultant Helen Macintyre.
Initially, Mr. Johnson had denied being her father, but in 2013, the Court of Appeal ruled that it was in the public interest to reveal the details of his extramarital affair.
During the ruling, the three judges hinted at the possibility of a second child from the affair, but no information is available.
In September of last year, during an interview with NBC, Mr. Johnson stated that he has six children.
Wilfred Lawrie Nicholas
Wilfred, a baby boy, was born on April 29, 2020, and is Mr. Johnson’s first child with his current wife, Carrie.
Despite being asked about his children publicly, Mr. Johnson tends to be private about his personal life and rarely discusses his family.
When LBC’s Nick Ferrari asked in 2019 about the number of children he has fathered, Mr. Johnson chose not to answer directly, emphasizing that he didn’t want to involve his children in the election campaign and believed that the focus should be on his plans for the country.
Romy Iris Charlotte
Boris Johnson and his wife, Carrie, welcomed their second child, Romy, on December 9, 2021, at the University College London hospital.
Mr. Johnson first revealed her first name to reporters during a visit to a vaccination center in Kent.
Later, Carrie shared their child’s full name on Instagram, stating that Romy was named after her aunt, Rosemary, and Iris was chosen for its Greek meaning, “rainbow.”
The couple also chose the name Charlotte in memory of Boris’s late mother. In her Instagram post, Carrie also mentioned that Wilf, their first child, has been affectionate towards his younger sibling, playing with his matchbox cars beside her crib in case she wants to join the fun.
