Boris Johnson’s wife Carrie has announced that the couple are expecting another child.
The 33-year-old revealed the news on an Instagram post on Saturday.
In a caption beside a toy pram she said she feels “incredibly blessed to be pregnant again” but has also felt “like a bag of nerves”.
It comes just months after she suffered a miscarriage, something that she also revealed in the message posted to her private account.
Ms Johnson said the loss of her unborn child earlier this year had left her “heartbroken”.
The couple, who already have a one-year-old son together, are expecting the new born to arrive by the end of the year.
She said: “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 Johnson, formerly Symonds, married two months ago in a secret ceremony at Westminster Cathedral.
