Boris and Carrie Johnson are expecting baby #2 and reveal miscarriage earlier this year left them 'heartbroken'

The stork is on the way to Downing Street again.

Earlier today, Carrie Johnson, 33, took to Instagram to reveal she is pregnant with her second child – and that the baby is due in December.  Her first baby, Wilfred Lawrie Nicholas Johnson, was born in April last year.

The baby will be the British Prime Minister's seventh child.

In her raw and honest private social media post, Mrs Johnson revealed she suffered a miscarriage earlier this year that left her 'heartbroken.'

 

In a message to followers, Carrie, who was appointed head of communications for animal conservation group the Aspinall Foundation earlier this year, wrote:

"Hoping for our rainbow baby this Christmas. At the beginning of the year, I had a miscarriage which left me heartbroken.

'I feel incredibly blessed to be pregnant again but I've also felt like a bag of nerves. Fertility issues can be really hard for many people, particularly when on platforms like Instagram it can look like everything is only ever going well.

'I found it a real comfort to hear from people who had also experienced loss so I hope that in some very small way sharing this might help others too."

Boris and Carrie married in a secret ceremony at Westminster Cathedral back in May this year, in front of a handful of close friends and family.

Their one-year-old son Wilfred attended the wedding, as did two official witnesses.
