How many children does Boris Johnson have? Lookalike son and love child from secret affair

Boris Johnson has become a dad for the seventh time after welcoming a baby daughter with wife Carrie.

The little girl is the Prime Minister’s second child with his third wife, who he married in May, but he’s spent years avoiding questions about how many children he actually has.

However during an interview on Today Show as part of a trip to New York back in September, he was asked directly and finally confirmed the number.

The Prime Minister said: “It’s fantastic, it’s fantastic, it’s a lot of work, I’ll tell you that much, but I love it, I absolutely love it. And I change a lot of nappies, in case anybody… I do.”

The Johnson children include a lookalike son, a gorgeous baby with an impressive head of hair and a love child from one of his many affairs.

The Tory politician is now happily married to PR guru Carrie Johnson, but he’s had a complicated love life including two divorces.

In 1987 he married his university girlfriend Allegra Mostyn-Owen but they divorced six years later, and Johnson wed Marina Wheeler with whom he had four children.

However, Johnson’s affair with a property developer saw him become a father again in 2009, and he welcomed a new baby son with Carrie during the Covid pandemic. Earlier this year the couple announced they were expecting their second child, with Carrie revealing the happy news on Instagram.

The Johnson kids are very successful, attending top private schools and Cambridge with some very impressive jobs between them.

Here’s what we know about Boris Johnson’s children:

Lara Lettice

Johnson and Marina’s oldest child was conceived ahead of their wedding in 1993.

Lara, 28, uses the double-barrelled surname Johnson-Wheeler, with the second being her mum’s surname.

She went to the £33,000-a-year Bedales school before earning a place at St Andrews University where she studied Latin.

She now works as a journalist, writer, editor and broadcaster and lives in London.

She specialises in arts and fashion criticism and has been published in Vogue.

Her website states: “Johnson-Wheeler is open to and has experience in public speaking, chairing panel discussions and debates.”

At 28, she is just five years younger than her dad’s wife, Carrie.

At the time of her parents’ split, the Sun reported that Lara called her dad a “selfish b*stard”.

She reportedly said: “Mum is finished with him. She will never take him back now.”

Milo Arthur

Milo, 26, is Boris and Marina’s oldest son and is a keen sportsman.

He went to Westminster School, which costs about £27,000-a-year.

He studied at London’s School of Oriental and African Studies and can speak Arabic, Russian and French.

After his parents’ split Milo was photographed helping his mum clearing out their Highgate home.

Removal vehicles were spotted outside the central London property, with Marina Wheeler and Milo seen removing rubbish from the property.

Cassia Peaches

The 24-year-old studied at Highgate School, which costs about £18,000-a-year.

Like her dad and older sister, Cassia is a writer and was a student editor for her school’s alumni magazine.

She went on to study at Trinity College in Dublin.

Theodore Apollo

Theo is Boris and Marina’s youngest child, and he is now 22.

He went to Cambridge University – the rival of his dad’s Oxford.

Not much is known about Theo, but he is understood to have attended a private school in London.

He has also been labelled a lookalike of Johnson, boasting the same distinctive hair colour and style.

Stephanie Macintyre

Stephanie was born through Johnson’s affair with property developer Helen Macintyre.

She was born in 2009.

Helen tried to keep their child secret and even launched legal action against a newspaper to prevent them publishing a report.

However, last year, Johnson’s dad Stanley appeared to acknowledge her place in the family, saying he had spoken to her over video call and hoped to meet his grandchildren.

‘Fourteen includes Stephanie — that’s the point,’ he said. ‘I am particularly pleased to include Stephanie.’

However, judges ruled the public had a right to know about Boris’s daughter.

It is understood that Stephanie has very little to do with her dad or her half siblings.

Wilfred Lawrie Nicholas

Johnson and Carrie Symonds welcomed their first child on April 29.

A spokesman for Boris Johnson and Carrie Symonds said: “The Prime Minister and Ms Symonds are thrilled to announce the birth of a healthy baby boy at a London hospital earlier this morning. Both mother and baby are doing very well.

“The PM and Ms Symonds would like to thank the fantastic NHS maternity team.”

The happy news came just weeks after the PM was admitted to intensive care with coronavirus.

Carrie also suffered from the virus, however her symptoms were not as severe.

The couple got engaged at the end of 2019 and the PR guru is due in the spring.

Following weeks of rumours, Carrie shared the happy news on her Instgram page. She wrote: “We got engaged at the end of last year… and we’ve got a baby hatching early summer.”

Johnson’s ex Marina, who is in the process of divorcing the serial-cheat Prime Minister and battled cancer last year, is said to be extremely upset by the news.

A source said: “Marina has had a tough year with her health scare and the divorce and is very worried about how the kids are handling it too. She’s just in pieces over it all.”

Other friends said the 55-year-old was “crushed” by the news.

And sources say their four grown-up kids are “furious” at Mr Johnson over his relationship with Carrie – who at 31 is 24 years his junior.

They are said to have barely met her and believe she started seeing him while he was still living with their mum.

Baby Girl Johnson

Back in July, Carrie and Boris announced they are expecting another child.

Sharing their happy news, Carrie also revealed she suffered a miscarriage at the beginning of the year, which left her “heartbroken.”

She wrote: “I feel incredibly blessed to be pregnant again but I’ve also felt like a bag of nerves.

“Fertility issues can be really hard for many people, particularly when on platforms like Instagram it can look like everything is only ever going well.

“I found it a real comfort to hear from people who had also experience loss so I hope that in some small way sharing this might help others, too.”

On Thursday it was announced that their baby girl had been born and is doing well.

A spokeswoman for the couple said: “The Prime Minister and Mrs Johnson are delighted to announce the birth of a healthy baby girl at a London hospital earlier today.

“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.”
