Boris Johnson, full name Alexander Boris de Pfeffel Johnson, celebrated the birth of his first child with fiance Carrie Symmonds earlier this year. Their son was born on April 29, 2020, and has been named Wilfred Lawrie Nicholas Johnson.

The couple chose the name Wilfred after Mr Johnson’s grandfather, Lawrie after Ms Symonds’ grandfather.

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

Mr Johnson was educated at Eton, a prestigious school which has seen 19 British Prime Ministers pass through its halls including David Cameron. Princes William and Harry also attended the school, which boasts yearly fees of £40,000.

This same expensive schooling was granted to Boris’ children, who all attended costly schools.

Boris has four children with soon-to-be ex-wife Marina Wheeler – Lara Lettice, Milo Arthur, Cassia Peaches and Theodore Apollo.

Marina and Boris have divorced and Boris, 55, is now in a relationship with Bloomberg PR Carrie Symonds, 32. 

The couple revealed on February 29 they are expecting a child. 

Ms Symonds said on Instagram: “I wouldn’t normally post this kind of thing on here but I wanted my friends to find out from me…

“Many of you already know but for my friends that still don’t, we got engaged at the end of last year… and we’ve got a baby hatching early summer.”

Ms Symonds also said in her message she feels “incredibly blessed”.

Boris’ eldest daughter Lara, 26, studied at Bedales – the same school her mother attended.

Bedales is a boarding school famous for its free-spirited attitudes, costing almost £33,000 a year.

The school’s website boasts of its rural location “in 120 acres of farmland, woods, orchards and playing fields.”

Boris’ oldest son Milo, 24, went to school at the £27,174 Westminster School, also attended by Nick Clegg, where he excelled at sports.

Younger sister Cassia, 22, attended the £18,000 a year Highgate School in North London but it is unknown which school Theodore Apollo, 20, attended.

The Johnson children have enjoyed a lavish lifestyle, and one holiday, in particular, Lara wrote about for her school magazine.

She described the holiday as “dizzyingly extravagant” and told of how she enjoyed a holiday only available to certain customers.

The trip took place during Boris’ stint as London Mayor and Lara wrote: “I was lucky enough to experience a dizzyingly extravagant lifestyle in world-class resorts that offered an insight into the levels of tourism on the island.

“We ate fresh fruit and Bircher muesli for breakfast and enjoyed waterskiing and a professional photo shoot on the beach intended for newly-weds.

“Such holidays are only available to a niche market of customers, however, we were fortunate enough to experience this complimentarily and were able to experience both the local lifestyle and the tourist market.”

Boris also has a younger daughter, Stephanie, who was born in 2009 to mother Helen Macintyre.

Helen is art adviser the politician had an affair with, and at first, Boris denied paternity.

However, in 2013, an injunction seeking to ban reporting of her existence was quashed by the Court of Appeal, though it’s thought the family are not in contact with her.
