Who is Carrie Johnson?

Carrie Johnson (real name: Caroline Louise Beavan Symonds) is a British media consultant and the wife of former Prime Minister of the United Kingdom Boris Johnson.

She was born on March 17, 1988, in London, United Kingdom to Matthew Symonds, co-founder of The Independent, and Josephine McAfee, a lawyer working for that newspaper.

Her paternal grandfather was John Beavan, Baron Ardwick (the one-time editor of the Daily Herald and later, during the 1970s, a Labour Party MEP), and her paternal grandmother was Anne Symonds, a BBC World Service journalist.

Between 1999 and 2006 attended Godolphin and Latymer School, a private day school for girls. She went to the University of Warwick to study Art History and Theatre Studies, graduating with a BA (Hons) in 2009.

How did Boris Johnson meet Carrie? During Boris Johnson’s marriage to his second wife, Marina Wheeler which lasted from 1993–2020, he was seeing Carrie in 2018. Boris was then the Foreign Secretary in the UK.

In fact, Carrie became the first unmarried partner of a prime minister to reside in Downing Street when Johnson became the prime minister in July 2019. On 16 August 2019, she made her first public appearance since entering 10 Downing Street, when she addressed what she called the “gigantic” climate crisis.

Symonds married Boris Johnson on 29 May 2021 in a secret ceremony at Westminster Cathedral attended by thirty guests.

Symonds and Boris Johnson went on to have kids together in 2020, 2021, and 2023.

Who are Boris Johnson’s children?

The former UK prime minister Boris Johnson (real name: Alexander Boris de Pfeffel Johnson) is a father of eight children in total – four sons and four daughters.

The names of Boris Johnson’s children are Lara Lettice Johnson, Milo Arthur Johnson, Cassia Peaches Johnson, Theodore Apollo Johnson, Stephanie Macintyre, Wilfred Johnson, Romy Johnson, and Frank Arthur Odysseus

All of his many kids are from his relationships and affairs with three different women. His baby mamas are his former wife, Marina Wheeler, art adviser Helen Macintyre, and his current wife Carrie Symonds.

There is a 30-year age gap between his eldest Lara and newborn Frank.

Lara Lettice, born in 1993, is the eldest of Boris Johnson’s brood and was conceived ahead of her parent’s wedding.

The MP married barrister Marina Wheeler in 1993 when she was pregnant with their daughter.

Lara, who styles herself with the double-barrelled surname Johnson-Wheeler, is a writer, editor, and broadcaster.

Fashionista Lara has carved out an impressive journalism career – as well as writing for Tory mag The Spectator and British Vogue and arts reviewing for the Evening Standard.

She is also a former Features Editor at the online style mag SHOWStudio.

She launched her own publication (un)fold magazine – which examines the “correlation between mental health and creativity” in 2016.

And just like her dad, she is a keen classicist, gaining an A in her Latin A-Level and going on to study at Prince William and Kate Middleton’s prestigious university St Andrews, where she gained a Master of Arts in Latin and Comparative Literature.

She was educated at Bedales which costs £33,000 a year.

Milo Arthur is the second child and the first son of Boris and his ex-wife Marina. Milo was born in 1995 and is now 28 years old.

He was educated at the £27,174 a year Westminster School where he was said to excel at sports.

In a 2011 issue of his school magazine, he was called a “delight to watch” and was “without doubt the player of the season” for his football skills.

Milo was also a keen cricket player and came runner-up in the Funaki prize, a long-running award for artistic endeavor.

He went on to study at London’s School of Oriental and African Studies which he graduated from in 2014.

Following this he took up a five-month internship at men’s magazine Esquire Middle East, based in Dubai.

According to his LinkedIn profile, he can speak Arabic, Russian and French.

Theodore Apollo, born in 1999, is the second son and the fourth overall child of the politician and his ex-partner, Marina.

He was the last child between Boris and Marina before they divorced.

It is not known which school he attended but it is believed to be one in London as he was pictured outside their Islington home in a school uniform in 2016.

He went on to attend Cambridge University – whereas his dad went to their rival Oxford.

In August 2020, he reportedly wrote a play on Brexit that included his father’s part in the UK leaving the European Union.

Boris has an illegitimate child, a daughter named Stephanie. She is his fifth child out of his 8th and he fathered her from his affair with Helen Macintyre, an art adviser.

She was born in 2009 and her birth sparked controversies in his family as he initially denied paternity and wasn’t named on the birth certificate.

However, his relations were revealed after a 2013 court battle in which he sought an injunction to prevent her existence from being reported.

It is not believed her elder half-siblings or her father have anything to do with her.

Wilfred Lawrie Nicholas Johnson was born on April 29, 2020.

The name is Wilfred after Johnson’s grandfather, and Lawrie after Ms Symonds’ grandfather.

The name Nicholas was chosen in tribute to the NHS doctors who saved Johnson’s life when he was in hospital with coronavirus.

Romy Johnson

A spokesperson for the couple shared the news, stating that Carrie had given birth to a “healthy baby girl” who was born in London.

It took almost a week for details of the baby’s name to be made public, with the couple finally deciding on Romy Iris Charlotte.

Carrie revealed the name on Instagram, revealing little Romy was named after her aunt.

She said: “Romy after my aunt, Rosemary. Iris from the Greek, meaning rainbow, Charlotte after Boris’ late mum who we miss so much.”

Carrie made the announcement on Instagram, where she shared adorable pictures of her newborn son.

Writing alongside the snap, she said: “Welcome to the world Frank Alfred Odysseus Johnson born 5th July at 9.15 am. (Can you guess which name my husband chose?!) Am loving every minute of the sleepy baby bubble. Seeing my older two embrace their new brother with such joy and excitement has been the most wonderful thing to see. We are all very smitten. Thank you so much to the incredible NHS maternity team at UCLH. They really are the most amazing, caring people. I feel such immense gratitude. Now, can anyone recommend any good series/box sets to binge while breastfeeding? Time for a drink”.
