VShe is not a “royal baby”, but almost. Boris Johnson and his wife Carrie announced Thursday, December 9, the birth of a baby girl in a hospital in London, which occurred earlier in the morning. “The Prime Minister and Mme Johnson are delighted to announce the birth of a healthy baby girl at a London hospital earlier today, ”a spokesperson for the couple said. According to her, mother and daughter are doing well. By his voice, the Johnson couple also congratulated “the brilliant maternity team for all their care and support”.
This birth comes as a happy parenthesis in a very complicated week for the British Prime Minister. For several days, revelations have been piling up in the newspapers about parties which were said to have taken place in Downing Street in November and December last year, in full lockdown, when the British were deprived of the possibility of seeing relatives or celebrate Christmas because of the restrictions linked to the pandemic.
Ridiculed by the press and vilified within his own party, Mr Johnson sees his credibility called into question as he places new restrictions on the Omicron variant. Added to this is yet another wake-up call on Thursday about the costly renovation of her Downing Street home, funded by a private donation.
Carrie Symonds, 33, now Mme Johnson, is already the mother with the British Prime Minister of a little boy, Wilfred Lawrie Nicholas Johnson, born at the end of April 2020. It is the 7the child for Boris Johnson, 57, who had four with his first wife, and also has a daughter born from an affair.
