British Prime Minister Boris Johnson will be a dad again at Downing St. He and his wife Carrie Symonds, whom he married in an intimate ceremony at Westminster Cathedral ahead of Britain’s June G7 summit, await the baby “for next Christmas.”
This was announced by her on her Instagram account, after saying that she had lost another pregnancy this year.
“Expected our rainbow baby for this Christmas,” Carrie wrote. “At the beginning of this year, I had a miscarriage, which left my heart broken. I feel extraordinarily blessed to be pregnant again but I feel like a bag of nerves” , wrote.
A “rainbow baby” is a child born after a miscarriage, or neonatal death.
“Fertility problems can be really difficult for many people, particularly when on platforms like Instagram it can seem that everything is going well,” continued Boris’ new wife.
“It was a real comfort to listen to people who had also experienced losses. So I hope that, in some way, sharing this can help others as well,” he confided.
The baby to arrive will be the brother of Wilfred Lawrie Nicholas Johnson, who has turned one year old and was born when his father was already premier.

Unconfirmed infidelities and rumors
Boris’s family is dysfunctional and complicated. Their first four children have half siblings, of affairs of the prime minister with different women, with whom he had children that, sooner or later, he recognized.
This is how Stephanie was born in 2009, the product of a love affair with art consultant Helen Macintyre. He initially denied paternity and his name was not on the birth certificate. Their bond spelled a legal battle.
Stephanie was recognized when he tried to obtain a judicial resource to avoid that the tabloids made known his existence.
Apparently there is another son but officially he has not yet been accepted. The judge who recognized Stephanie explained in the sentence that “as a result of the infidelities boys had been conceived from the father on two occasions ”.
“I love my boys very much but they are not running in this election,” Boris replied during the election campaign, without specifying how many children he has. He officially married twice.
