Boris Johnson has become a father again at the age of 55, after his fiancé Carrie Symonds gave birth to a health baby boy yesterday. The as-yet-unnamed newborn is the first child for Boris and Carrie, but he's the Prime Minister's sixth child.
Here's everything you need to know about Boris' five other children, four of which he shares with ex-wife Marina Wheeler:
Lara Lettice Johnson-Wheeler
Boris Johnson's eldest child is 26-year-old Lara Lettice, who was born just five days after her parents married. After studying at university in St Andrews, Lara is now a writer, editor and broadcaster based in London with a particular interest in fashion. She's had work published in Vogue, is a Contributing Editor at Tatler, and she consults for non-binary fashion brand ART SCHOOL. In 2016, Lara crowdfunded for the self-publication of a magazine called (un)fold, which explores "the correlation between creative innovation and mental health through prose, poetry and photography".
Milo Arthur Johnson-Wheeler
Two years after Lara came Milo, the first of Boris' three sons. 24-year-old Milo reportedly studied at the London School of Oriental and African Studies, and has since also dipped his toe in the world of journalism, working as an intern at Esquire Middle East in Dubai.
Cassia Peaches Johnson-Wheeler
Boris and Marina's second daughter was born in 1997 and named Cassia Peaches. Now, 22, Cassia is reportedly following in the footsteps of her dad and her older siblings, embarking on a career as a writer. During her time at the private Highgate school in North London, Cassia was reportedly the student editor of alumni magazine Cholmeleian.
Theodore Apollo Johnson-Wheeler
Theodore is the youngest of Boris Johnson and Marina Wheeler's shared children. At 20, he's still studying, and is currently at the University of Cambridge. Considering his father is a former University of Oxford alumni, there may have been some disagreements there...
In 2009, following an affair with art consultant Helen Macintyre, Boris Johnson fathered a daughter. Boris and Helen had been working on an Olympic project together during his time as Mayor of London, and a court ruling in 2013 refused an injunction to hide her identity. The court declared that voters were entitled to know that the Mayor of London had fathered a child after a "brief adulterous affair". It's not known whether Stephanie, now 11-years-old, has a relationship with her dad or any of her half siblings.
