Boris and Carrie Johnson have welcomed their third child together, a baby named Frank Alfred Odysseus Johnson, or Frankie to his family.

The baby is the third for the couple, but the eighth for Daily Mail columnist Johnson. The former prime minister has four children from his marriage to the lawyer Marina Wheeler. He also has a fifth child, Stephanie Macintyre, with art consultant Helen Macintyre.
How many children does Boris Johnson have?
The prime minister and Marina Wheeler, who separated in 2018, have four children: Lara Lettice, 26, Milo Arthur, 24, Cassia Peaches, 22, and Theodore Apollo, 20.
He also has a fifth child, Stephanie Macintyre, with art consultant Helen Macintyre.
The Court of Appeal ruled in 2013 that the public had a right to know that he had fathered a daughter during an adulterous relationship while mayor of London in 2009, but also raised the possibility of a second baby.
Lara attended Bedales School, which costs £33,000 a year, in Hampshire and later studied Latin at the University of St Andrews.
Milo went to the £27,000 a year Westminster School and can speak Arabic, Russian and French. Cassia went to Highgate School, which costs £18,000 a year, and Theodore went to Cambridge University.
Boris’s son Wilf, born April 29, 2020, is the fruit of his relationship with his wife Carrie. His second with Carrie, Romy, was born in December 2021. The third child was born on July 11, 2023. Mr. Johnson’s eighth.
The Johnsons named Wilfred after Mr Johnson’s grandfather with one of his middle names, Lawrie, after his own grandfather and the other being Nicholas, after a doctor who treated the former MP as he battled Covid in the St Thomas’s Hospital in London.
His daughter Romy was named after Mrs. Johnson’s aunt Rosemary, her middle name Iris means rainbow in Greek and her third name Charlotte was a tribute to Mr. Johnson’s late mother.
The baby is the third for the couple, but the eighth for Daily Mail columnist Johnson.
He has four children from his marriage to attorney Marina Wheeler.
In May, Ms Johnson announced that she was expecting her third child, adding that the arrival was only a few weeks ago.
Sharing her news on Instagram, she said she’s felt “quite exhausted” over the past eight months, adding: “We can’t wait to meet this little guy” in a few weeks.
‘Wilf is very excited to be a big brother again and has been talking non-stop.
‘Don’t think Romy has any idea what’s coming. He will soon.
The baby’s arrival is just over three years after Ms. Johnson gave birth to her first child, Wilfred.
And in December 2021 they welcomed their daughter Romy, whom Ms Johnson described as her ‘rainbow baby’ following her miscarriage a year earlier.
The couple moved to Oxfordshire earlier this year after Johnson stepped down as prime minister last September.
Mr. Johnson’s children with Mrs. Wheeler are 20 years old: Lara Lettice is 20, Milo Arthur is 27,
Cassia Peaches, 25, and Theodore Apollo, 23.
He also has another daughter from a relationship with art consultant Helen McIntyre.
