Boris Johnson promises to get stuck in changing nappies when fiance Carrie Symonds gives birth this summer

BORIS Johnson has reluctantly promised to get stuck in with changing nappies as he was grilled about the news that he and his fiancee are expecting a baby this summer.

But Holly Willoughby and Philip Schofield left him squirming on This Morning sofa as they asked Mr Johnson how his children have reacted to the news.

The PM refused to tell them if they had even congratulated him and Carrie Symonds on the news they are expecting a child in the early summer.

Pressed again by Philip, Mr Johnson insisted he had always sought to keep his family out of the public eye.

He replied: "I've spent an awfully long time deliberately not going on about it, for the very good reason that there are people that I love that I don't want to put in the debate and that's the reason."

But the PM insisted he would be helping out with the chores of becoming a new dad later this year.

Earlier this week he revealed he would be taking the two weeks of paternity leave that all new dads are entitled to for up to two months after the birth of their new child.

Speaking to the PM on This Morning today about coronavirus, Holly told him: "We can't let you go without saying congratulations."

Mr Johnson admitted he was "very excited” at the news and asked whether he would be changing nappies, the PM added: "I expect so."

The PM joked about the nappy question: “That was a very tricky one, there was nowhere to go on that one."

Earlier this week Boris confirmed he would be taking paternity leave when his new baby arrives.

The Prime Minister is to become a dad for the sixth time – and will be the first PM in nearly 200 years to marry while in office.

But it threatens to disrupt a busy summer of foreign trips, including the key G7 summit in Camp David in the US in June.

The Sun understands the 31-year-old is six months pregnant with the baby due in late May or early June.
