Boris Johnson has got engaged to Carrie Symonds, 31, who is expecting his baby
Top names include Winston based on Churchill and Stanley after the PM’s father

Charlotte, James and even Winston are among the favourite odds for the Prime Minister’s expected baby.

Boris Johnson and Carrie Symonds have announced that they are expecting a baby and that they have got engaged
Mr Johnson, 55, and Miss Symonds, 31, made history as the first unmarried couple to officially live together in Downing Street when they moved in last year.
Ms Symonds, a conservationist and former Conservative Party communications chief, first found herself making headlines when she was romantically linked to Mr Johnson earlier in 2019.
A spokesperson for the couple said: ‘The Prime Minister and Miss Symonds are very pleased to announce their engagement and that they are expecting a baby in the early summer.’
Alex Apati of Ladbrokes said: ‘Baby Boris is due later this year and punters are already guessing which name the PM and his wife-to-be will opt for. As things stand Charlotte and James head the betting with a Baby Brexit seemingly unlikely at 1000/1.’
Bookmakers are already cashing in on odds for names as the birth. Stanley, after the Prime Minister’s father Stanley Johnson, is among the names topping the favourite odds
Bookmakers have named Winston (after wartime leader Churchill) as one of the favourite names, while Emmeline is also among top odds for girl names (after suffragette activist Emmeline Pankhurst)
