But on NBCs Today Show Johnson finally made the admission that he has six children.
How many children the Prime Minister is the father of has been a talking point in the UK for several years.
But this time he answered yes to the question of whether he has six children.
Johnson has four children with ex-wife Marina Wheeler, and one with Carrie Johnson, whom he married earlier this year.
The last child comes from an affair with another woman while he was married to Wheeler.
It has been reported in the British media that the woman tried to go to court to refuse the media to mention that Johnson, who was then Mayor of London, would have children as a result of an affair outside of marriage.
Johnson did not explain why he now chose to admit that he has six children.
57-year-old Johnson divorced Wheeler in 2018, and became engaged to 24-year-younger Carrie, then Symonds the following year.
In 2020, they had their first child together, Wilfred.
– It was fantastic to have a child at the same time as being prime minister, it was a lot of work, but I love it. There has been a lot of diaper changes, he laughs in the interview.
In August, the couple announced that they are expecting another child, thus the Prime Minister will be the father of seven children.
