The British Prime Minister is married for the third time as the politician swapped vows with Carrie Symonds with whom he shares a daughter, a year after the couple battled Covid-19.
AceShowbiz -British Prime Minister Boris Johnson has wed his fiancee Carrie Symonds.
According to the Daily Mail, the couple exchanged vows in a private ceremony at Westminster Cathedral in London on Saturday (29May21), when just 30 guests were in attendance, as per COVID-19 protocols.
Father Daniel Humphries officiated the ceremony after baptising the new husband and wife’s one-year-old son, Wilfred, last year (20).
Johnson and Symonds, who became engaged in late 2019, are said to be planning a separate marriage celebration in July 2022 after sending out “save the date” cards to family and friends.
The news makes the Conservative Party leader the first British Prime Minister to wed while in office in roughly 200 years, reports The Daily Telegraph.
Downing Street representatives have declined to comment on the wedding.
Johnson was previously married to Allegra Mostyn-Owen and second wife Marina Wheeler, with whom he has four children.
Boris Johnson and Carrie Symonds got engaged in 2020 as she was pregnant with their first child together. The engagement came several months after he was admitted to a hospital due to Covid-19. She also suffered from coronavirus symptoms but recovered after resting at home.
“Many of you already know but for my friends that still don’t, we got engaged at the end of last year… and we’ve got a baby hatching early summer. Feel incredibly blessed,” she gushed when announcing her betrothal back then.
Their baby becomes the first born to an incumbent leader since the August 2010 arrival of David and Samantha Cameron’s daughter, Florence Rose Endellion.
Johnson also fathered a child with art consultant Helen Macintyre.
