Boris Johnson’s relationships: Johnson’s turbulent life

Current Boris Johnson’s wife, Carrie Symonds, 34, is the daughter of The Independent co-founder Matthew Symonds. The pair tied the knot in May and shared two children.

They were first linked when they spent Valentine’s Day together in 2018. Carrie announced she was pregnant with the couple’s second child in July this year.

Boris announced that wife Carrie had welcomed a “healthy baby girl” at a London hospital on 9 December and later revealed that they named her Romy Iris Charlotte Johnson. The couple has kept the infant out of the spotlight, but Express reported in January that she was recovering after contracting Covid at just five weeks old. The baby girl is his second child with Carrie Johnson (nee Symonds) and is the younger sister to the pair’s son, Wilfred, born on 29 April 2020.

They are also parents to son Wilfred, born in April 2020. Before meeting ex-PR chief Carrie, Boris welcomed children Lara Lettice, Milo Arthur, Cassia Peaches and Theodore Apollo with his second wife, Marina Wheeler. He is also reported to have fathered a daughter with love interest Helen MacIntyre.

The couple were engaged in late 2019 and welcomed their first child, a son named Wilfred Lawrie Nicholas Johnson, in April 2020. They married in an intimate wedding ceremony at Westminster Cathedral in May 2021.

Carrie Symonds, The 34-year-old, grew up in southwest London before studying art history at Warwick University. She says her first job in politics was working for Zac Goldsmith, the MP for Richmond Park and North Kingston, adding she was “not sure I’d have worked for the Tories if it hadn’t been for him”.

The Prime Minister and his fiancee Carrie Symonds tied the knot in a secret wedding last May.

But their nuptials at Westminster Cathedral sparked outrage among some figures in the Catholic Church. There was backlash over the wedding because Mr Johnson had been married twice before. Father Mark Drew, the assistant priest at St Joseph’s Church in Penketh, Warrington, was among those to hit out at the Tory leader. He claimed he had been forced to tell Catholic couples getting divorced that they could not marry again in the Church.

While the baby girl is Ms Johnson’s second child, Mr Johnson is more familiar with the experience of parenthood. During his resignation speech, Boris thanked Carrie and “all of my children” however, the exact number of offspring the prime minister has remained unclear. The youngest of Mr Johnson’s children is his daughter, Romy Iris Charlotte Johnson, born on 9 December 2021.

But this is the latest page of Boris Johnson’s relationships. The first page was Allegra Mostyn-Owen, a British businesswoman.

She is notable for being the first wife of British Prime Minister Boris Johnson. The pair decided early on in their relationship to get married. They were both 23 and were the youngest of their Oxford set to match. They were married on 5 September 1987,

On 8 May 1993, a pregnant Wheeler married her childhood friend Boris Johnson, whose previous relationship had ended 12 days earlier. 

Marina is a human rights lawyer who became a Queen’s Counsel in 2016 and the daughter of journalist and broadcaster Charles Wheeler and his wife, Dip Singh. They had met again and teamed up in Brussels, where he was covering the European Parliament for The Daily Telegraph. In September 2018, Johnson and Wheeler issued a statement confirming that after 25 years of marriage, they had separated “several months ago” and begun divorce proceedings. They reached a financial settlement in February 2020, and the divorce was finalized by November 2020.

The press also accused him of having an affair with Helen Macintyre and of fathering her child, allegations that he did not deny.

Boris is also dad to a daughter, Stephanie, born in 2009, whom he shares with journalist Helen MacIntyre. In 2010 Media revealed that the politician had fathered a daughter with arts consultant Helen during his marriage to his second wife, Marina. Not much is known about Stephanie or Boris’ relationship with her.

It is believed that the prime minister has eight children. However, he has not officially confirmed the exact number.

What is known is that the prime minister and his second wife, Marina Wheeler, who separated in 2018, have four children together: Lara Lettice, 27; Milo Arthur, 25; Cassia Peaches, 23, and Theodore Apollo, 21.

Mr Johnson also has a fifth child, Stephanie Macintyre, who was fathered due to an affair with art consultant Helen Macintyre. The Appeal Court ruled in 2013 that the public had a right to know that he had fathered a daughter during an adulterous liaison while Mayor of London in 2009.

“The core information in this story, namely that the father had an adulterous affair with the mother, deceiving both his wife and the mother’s partner and that the claimant, born about nine months later, was likely to be the father’s child, was a public interest matter which the electorate was entitled to know when considering his fitness for high public office,” the court said.

Boris Johnson has famously diverted questions about his family and personal life, especially during the election campaign in 2019.

During a radio interview with LBC, presenter Nick Ferrari asked the prime minister how many children he had and if he was “fully involved” in their lives. The prime minister responded: “I love my children very much, but they are not standing at this election. “I’m not, therefore, going to comment on them.”

He added, ” I am not going to put them onto the pitch in their election campaign when I think what people want to hear is what my plans are for the country, what this government is determined to do and how we are going to take this country forward. “That is how People should judge all parties”, Jonson said.
