Boris Johnson has famously diverted questions about his family and personal life, especially during the election campaign in 2019 where he said it was not what the electorate wanted to discuss. When asked how many children he had by LBC’s Nick Ferrari, the Prime Minister replied: “I don’t think this is what the nation wants to hear.”
How many children does Boris Johnson have?
Boris Johnson is believed to be the father of six children, the youngest being his son with Carrie Symonds who was born this morning.
As of yet, they have not chosen on a name for the baby boy, who is understood to be doing well along with his mum, who remains in the hospital.
The couple also expressed their thanks this morning, to the hardworking NHS maternity staff who ensured the safe delivery of their son.
Four of Mr Johnson’s children are from his marriage to his ex-wife and top-tier barrister Marina Wheeler, while his fifth child is believed to be with a former mistress.
