The prime minister told a US broadcaster that she had given birth to six children after a long-running confusion.
Boris Johnson has confirmed that he has given birth to six children – ending a long-running confusion.
The Prime Minister is preparing to welcome his second child with wife Carrie Johnson, following the birth of his youngest child in April 2020.
PM has four children with ex-wife Marina Wheeler, but he also has one child as a result of an affair with art consultant Helen McIntyre, who was born in 2009.
At first she denied paternity and also sought an injunction to prevent the discovery of her existence during a court battle in 2013.
But confusion arose from the proceedings where it was alleged that Johnson may have given birth to two children as a result of the affair.
The judgment read: “What materialized was that the father’s infidelity resulted in the conception of children on two occasions.”
Johnson has repeatedly said that he would not discuss his personal life, and during the 2019 election campaign he said he would not discuss his children.
Speaking to US broadcaster NBC on Tuesday during his US visit, the PM was asked if he currently has six children, and said: “Yes.”
Johnson was asked about being a father while running the country.
And he said: “It’s fantastic. It’s a lot of work. It’s a lot of work, I’ll tell you all, but I love it, I absolutely love it and I want you to know that I change a lot of nappies.” Am.
Last year, Johnson welcomed son Wilfred, and Carrie Johnson announced in July of this year that she was pregnant again with a touching message about miscarriage.
The former Conservative Party communications director, who said the new baby would arrive “this Christmas”, said she wanted to share personal news about her miscarriage to “help others”.
She said: “Fertility issues can be really hard for many people, especially when on a platform like Instagram it can seem like everything is always going well.
“I found a real comfort in hearing from others who had experienced loss, so I hope sharing this can help others as well.”
