British Prime Minister Boris Johnson and his partner Carrie Symonds are engaged and expecting a baby.

"The Prime Minister and Miss Symonds are very pleased to announce their engagement and that they are expecting a baby in the early summer," a spokesperson for the couple told media. 

Johnson and Symonds have been living at 10 Downing Street since July 2019.  

Symonds, 31, is the youngest partner a British Prime Minister has had in 173 years.

The marriage will be Johnson's third. 

According to BBC News, the pair were romantically linked in early 2019. However, Symonds worked with Johnson in 2012, on his mayoral election campaign.
