But just how many children does the prime minister have? Johnson doesn’t want to say.
Appearing on British radio station LBC on Friday, Johnson was confronted by an angry listener who had called the show to reference his 1995 article for the Spectator. The caller, identified as “Ruth,” told the prime minister: “I don’t appreciate what you’ve said about single mothers,” before adding: “Why are you happy to criticize people like me when you refuse to discuss your family?”
Johnson, who has been married twice, has four children — two daughters and two sons — with his most recent ex-wife, Marina Wheeler, who he separated from in 2018. Rumors have long swirled in Britain that Johnson has a fifth child, a daughter, from an affair. Johnson’s personal life has often hit the headlines in Britain, with the 55-year-old frequently being accused of adultery during his 25-year marriage. “Boris Johnson booted out by wife Marina after she accused him of cheating AGAIN,” wrote the Sun in September 2018.
