As British Prime Minister Boris Johnson continues to be under observation in the ICU, his pregnant fiancee Carrie Symonds is still away from him, just weeks before giving birth to their first child. Both Boris and Carrie are in England but as per a report published by Daily Mail, Carrie is currently self-isolating with her mother in East Sheen, South West London. She, too, is recovering from COVID-19 and battling too much emotional stress considering there are still no sure reports about whether the virus can be transmitted to the foetus if the pregnant woman is already infected with it.

Carrie and Boris have put forth a tough stance ever since they started making public appearances together amid strong speculations that their relationship was not going to last. Breaking stereotypes has been the most interesting part of their relationship. They did it by visiting the Queen at Balmoral as an unmarried couple and did it with great dignity. They announced the pregnancy in February just weeks after Boris became the Prime Minister. She had been supporting him in the election campaign earlier and also campaigning for many of her female Tory friends who stood as candidates.
Both Carrie and Boris have shown extreme courage in handling their private lives and health conditions. Even as the PM’s health deteriorates, here’s wishing both him and his lovely fiancee a speedy recovery!
