A spokesperson for Johnson confirmed his upcoming wedding to Symonds at the time; telling The Telegraph: “The Prime Minister and Ms. Symonds are very pleased to announce their engagement and that they are expecting a baby in the early summer.”

Johnson finalized his divorce from Marina Wheeler, 55, in February.

The couple was married for 25 years before they announced their separation in September 2018, according to the BBC.

The exciting news for Boris Johnson and Symonds comes just a few weeks after he was discharged from St. Thomas’ Hospital in London; where he spent 10 days battling the novel coronavirus (COVID-19).

Johnson first revealed that he had tested positive for the deadly respiratory illness on Mach 27.

After spending nine days of self-isolation in the prime ministerial apartment above No. 11 Downing Street; he was taken to St. Thomas’ after his condition “worsened,” his office said on April 6.

Later that day, Johnson was moved into intensive care.

He remained awake and was also never placed on a ventilator. Aides had described the ICU move as precautionary, in case ventilation was needed if Johnson’s case became more severe.

Symonds — who was also struggling with symptoms of COVID-19 while pregnant —expressed similar sentiments on Twitter.

“I cannot thank our magnificent NHS enough. The staff at St Thomas’ Hospital have been incredible. I will never, ever be able to repay you and I will never stop thanking you,” she wrote at the time.

“There were times last week that were very dark indeed.”
