(BBC) – Prime Minister Boris Johnson and his partner Carrie Symonds are engaged and are expecting a baby in early summer, the couple have announced.
Ms Symonds wrote on Instagram that they got engaged at the end of last year, adding she felt “incredibly blessed”.
Mr Johnson, 55, and Ms Symonds, 31, became the first unmarried couple to occupy Downing Street when they moved in last year.
Ms Symonds is also the youngest partner of a prime minister in 174 years.
In a post on her private Instagram account, she wrote: “Many of you already know but for my friends that still don’t, we got engaged at the end of last year… and we’ve got a baby hatching early summer. Feel incredibly blessed.”
It will be a third marriage for Mr Johnson – who divorced his first wife and is now estranged from second wife Marina Wheeler.
Earlier this month, a court heard that the prime minister and Ms Wheeler were preparing to end their marriage after reaching an agreement over money.
Ms Wheeler and Mr Johnson, who have four children, separated in 2018 after marrying in 1993.
