On April 29, 2020, Symonds gave birth to the couple’s first child, Wilfred. The same month the Prime Minister was hospitalized with coronavirus.
Later in 2020, she made her first joint television appearance with Johnson, thanking NHS workers for treating her to the hospital and giving birth to her baby.
The wedding news came just a few days after the Save-the-Date card was sent to family and friends for an event on July 30, 2022.
The two announced that they were to get married in February 2020.
Johnson, 56, has four children from his second marriage to Marina Wheeler. The two announced that they were separating after 25 years of marriage in September 2018, shortly after which Johnson’s relationship with Symonds was confirmed.
Symonds, 33, has enjoyed a successful political career, working as part of the campaign team that helped Johnson be re-elected as mayor of London in 2012.
At the age of 29, Symonds became the youngest director of communications in the Conservative Party. Analysts say she was instrumental in cleaning up Johnson’s famous disorganized personality during the leadership campaign.
