How Many Children Does Boris Johnson Have?

| Last updated 

How Many Children Does Boris Johnson Have?

Prime Minister Boris Johnson has recently revealed how many children he has after years of dodging the question.

His current wife Carrie Symonds gave birth to their first child together in April 2020 and their second child, a daughter, was born on 8th December 2021. Boris Johnson has also got children from previous marriages and relationships.

How many children does Boris Johnson have?

Prime Minister Boris Johnson has seven children. He has four children with his ex-wife, Marina Wheeler, one daughter from an extramarital relationship and two more with his wife Carrie Johnson.


Before his marriage to Marina Wheeler, Boris was married to British ceramic artist and journalist Allegra Mostyn-Owen between 1987-1993, but no children came of that marriage.

Boris Johnson's children's names

Boris Johnson and ex-wife Marina Wheeler have four children together: Lara Lettice (born 1993), Milo Arthur (born 1995), Cassia Peaches (born 1997), and Theodore Apollo (born 1999).

In 2009, Johnson fathered a daughter with Helen MacIntyre, a professional arts consultant who he was having an affair with. There was a court appeal for the paternity of Helen's child to remain concealed and to not be reported on, but the judge rejected the appeal, stating that the public had a right to know about Johnson's "reckless" behaviour. The identity of Boris Johnson's daughter with Helen MacIntyre isn't known.


In April 2020, Carrie gave birth to Johnson's sixth child, Wilfred Lawrie Nicholas Johnson.

In July 2021, Boris Johnson and Carrie Symonds announced they were expecting their second child together and on 8th December 2021, Carrie gave birth to Johnson's seventh child: a daughter.

Carrie and Boris Johnson's relationship began in 2018, while he was still married to Marina Wheeler. They married in May 2021.
