The couple had announced the news of Carrie expecting a baby, and their engagement at the end of February.

The news comes after Boris Johnson fought his battle against coronaviru and joined the office few days ago. He had been recuperating at his Chequers countryside retreat in Buckinghamshire, where he was joined by his pregnant fiancee.

Carrie had also tweeted about Borris' recovery and had thanked the NHS for their support and good work. She was, too, in isolation with the fear of developing symptoms.
