Downing Street has released the first set of photographs of Boris Johnson’s fiancee after the pair announced they are expecting a baby in the summer.

Carrie Symonds, 31, was pictured at Number 10 with the Prime Minister at a reception to mark International Women’s Day.

The pictures, released today, show the growing baby bump and a large engagement ring around her finger.

In making the announcement on Instagram, Ms Symonds told her followers the baby was due in ‘early summer’ and that she felt ‘incredibly blessed’.

She has not been seen in public since December’s general election.



The couple are the first unmarried pair to officially live together in Downing Street and, earlier this week, Mr Johnson said he would ‘almost certainly’ take paternity leave when the time came.

However, in a separate interview he appeared flustered when asked if he would be changing nappies.

A new arrival would be the third baby born to a serving PM’s after Tony Blair and David Cameron each fathered children while at Number 10.

Mr Blair’s wife Cherie gave birth to son Leo in May 2000, while Mr Cameron and his wife Samantha welcomed daughter Florence in 2010.
