Boris Johnson's estranged wife 'in pieces' and children 'furious' over engagement

Boris Johnson’s estranged wife is said to be “in pieces” and their children “furious” at news that he is engaged to Carrie Symonds.

Friends say Marina Wheeler, who is divorcing the serial-cheat Prime Minister and battled cancer last year, is struggling to come to terms with the development.

A source said: “Marina has had a tough year with her health scare and the divorce and is very worried about how the kids are handling it too. She’s just in pieces over it all.”

Other friends said the 55-year-old was “crushed” by the news.


And sources say their four grown-up kids are “furious” at Mr Johnson over his relationship with Carrie – who at 31 is 24 years his junior.

They are said to have barely met her and believe she started seeing him while he was still living with their mum.

Mr Johnson is thought to have told Lara Lettice, 26, Milo Arthur, 24, Cassia Peaches, 22, and Theodore Apollo, 20, last week that he and Carrie are having a baby.

It comes after Mr Johnson’s ­children endured a string of public scandals while growing up as he was caught cheating on Marina.

Lara reportedly branded the PM a “selfish b*****d” when news of his affair with Carrie broke. And she has been particularly protective of her mum, who had two successful operations for cervical cancer in 2019.

The PM’s wider family – other than father Stanley – are thought to have kept their distance from the new couple. But Mr Johnson and Carrie are believed to have spent a quiet Christmas Day with their mothers and dog Dilyn at No10.

Carrie told friends at the weekend she is around five months pregnant and she and the PM, 55, are engaged.

She said on Instagram : “I wouldn’t normally post this kind of thing 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. Feel incredibly blessed.”

  3. "feel incredibly blessed"?? For snatching a woman's hubby and children's father away from them?
    The thunder that will fire you is still dressing up
