The patter of tiny feet is coming to Downing Street. British Prime Minister Boris Johnson announced Saturday he and his girlfriend Carrie Symonds are expecting a baby in the early summer and are engaged to be married.

Johnson had four children with his second wife and has fathered at least one other child. The 55-year-old Johnson and 31-year-old Symonds made history last year as the first unmarried couple to officially live together at the British prime minister's London residence.

Symonds is a conservationist and the former communications chief for Johnson's Conservative Party. The wives of former prime ministers David Cameron and Tony Blair had babies while their husbands were in office.
