BORIS Johnson and his wife Carrie Symonds have announced the birth of their new-born daughter.
Boris is believed to have seven children, his latest child born on November 9, 2021, with the child being the second between the Prime Minister and his wife after baby Wilfred was born in April, 2020.

Who are Boris Johnson’s children?
Mr Johnson has six children in total – from three different women, including his former wife Marina Wheeler.
There is a 27-year age gap between his eldest Lara and most recent addition, Wilfred.
The MP married barrister Marina in 1993 when she was pregnant with their daughter.
Lara, who styles herself with the double barrelled surname Johnson-Wheeler, is a writer, editor and broadcaster.
Fashionista Lara has carved out an impressive journalism career – as well as writing for Tory mag The Spectator and British Vogue and arts reviewing for the Evening Standard, she is also a former Features Editor at online style mag SHOWStudio.
She launched her own publication (un)fold magazine – which examines the “correlation between mental health and creativity” in 2016.
And just like her dad she is a keen classicist, gaining an A in her Latin A-Level and going on to study at Prince William and Kate Middleton‘s prestigious university St Andrews, where she gained a Master of Arts in Latin and Comparative Literature.
She was educated at Bedales which costs £33,000 a year.
Milo Arthur, 26, is the second eldest of the Johnson clan and is the oldest of his boys.
He was educated at the £27,174 a year Westminster School where he was said to excel at sports.
In a 2011 issue of his school magazine he was called a “delight to watch” and was “without doubt the player of the season” for his football skills.
Milo was also a keen cricket player and came runner up in the Funaki prize, a long-running award for artistic endeavour.
He went on to study at London’s School of Oriental and African Studies which he graduated from in 2014.
Following this he took up a five-month internship at men’s magazine Esquire Middle East, based in Dubai.
According to his LinkedIn profile, he can speak Arabic, Russian and French.
He was pictured helping his mum clear out the family home after she announced she was leaving Boris.
Cassia Peaches, 24, is the third of Johnson’s children with Marina.
She studied at the £18,000 per year Highgate School in North London.
Like her father she is a writer and during her time at the private school she was a student editor of their alumni magazine Cholmeleian.
Theodore Apollo, 22, is the youngest of Johnson’s children with ex-wife Marina.
It is not known which school he attended but it is believed to be one in London as he was pictured outside their Islington home in a school uniform in 2016.
He went on to attend Cambridge University – whereas his dad went to their rival Oxford.
In August 2020, he reportedly wrote a play on Brexit that included his father’s part in the UK leaving the European Union.
Boris’ family life has caused him some controversy over the years.
His four children have a younger half-sister, Stephanie, who was born in 2009 – the product of an affair with art advisory Helen Macintyre.
Stephanie is the second youngest of Johnson’s children.
At first, he denied paternity and wasn’t named on the birth certificate.
However, his relations were revealed after a 2013 court battle in which he sought an injunction to prevent her existence being reported.
It is not believed her elder half-siblings or her father have anything to do with her.
The name Wilfred after Mr Johnson’s grandfather, Lawrie after Ms Symonds’ grandfather.
The name Nicholas was chosen in tribute to the NHS doctors who saved Mr Johnson’s life when he was in hospital with coronavirus.
The young Johnson became Boris’ sixth child – and third son – and became the latest new baby born to a serving Prime Minister. Wilfred followed Tony Blair‘s son Leo in 2000 and David Cameron‘s daughter Florence in 2010 as newborns in Downing Street. The tot also became stepbrother to Boris’ five other children.
Boris and Carrie’s second child
The Prime Minister and his wife announced the latest arrival to their brood on November 9, 2021.
A spokesperson for the couple shared the news, stating that Carrie had given birth to a “healthy baby girl” who was born in London.
A statement said: “Both mother and daughter are doing very well.
“The couple would like to thank the brilliant NHS maternity team for all their care and support.”
