The child is Wilfred’s sister, born in April 2020.

The couple moved in together at 10 Downing St when Boris Johnson became Prime Minister in 2019, becoming the first unmarried couple to openly live together at the British Prime Minister’s official London residence.

Boris Johnson, now 57, and Carey, who is 33, married in May 2021, in what is their first and their third marriage.

Johnson has at least five other children from previous relationships.

The new baby is the fourth in this century to be born to a current British prime minister. The wives of politicians Tony Blair and David Cameron also had children while their husbands were in office.
