Boris Johnson’s girlfriend Carrie Symonds announces pregnancy and engagement in Instagram post
Boris Johnson is set to welcome his first child with Carrie Symonds after she announced news of their pregnancy on Instagram.
It was a double whammy of good news for the Prime Minister as she also revealed the couple had got engaged at the end of 2019.
Writing alongside a selfie of Boris, 55, kissing his partner on the cheek Carrie, 31, wrote on her private Instagram page that she felt "incredibly blessed".

In a post on her private Instagram account, she wrote: "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."
Boris and Carrie are yet to confirm a date for their wedding but this will be the PM's third, after divorcing his first wife and university girlfriend Allegra Mostyn-Owen in 1993, and recently divorcing his second wife Marina Wheeler.
News of his engagement to Carrie comes after his divorce was finalised 11 days ago.

The baby will also be the sixth child for the PM, who is the first to get wed while sitting in office for at least 250 years and is the first to be unwed.
He has four adult children with ex-wife Marina, Lara Lettice, Cassia Peaches, Theodore Apollo and Milo Arthur, and believed to have fathered a fifth child with property developer Helen Macintyre.
A spokesperson for the couple told the Mirror: "The Prime Minister and Miss Symonds are very pleased to announce their engagement and that they are expecting a baby in the early summer."
The couple, who live at 10 Downing Street after moving in back in July, already have their pet pooch Dilyn living with them. They opted to live in the larger four-bedroom house at number 11 instead of the two-bed flat at number 10.
Carrie, a senior adviser for US environmental campaign group Oceana, has been keeping a low profile since before Christmas with the couple spending the New Year in Mustique.
