Johnson has crammed a lot into the past six months: winning a General Election, Brexit on 31 January 2020, going into intensive care for Covid-19 before recovering, and now becoming a father again.
There is some speculation about the number of children Boris Johnson has. This may be his seventh child, based on some reports. In an interview with LBC in 2019, he had the opportunity to clarify, but refused it.
