Boris and Carrie are having another baby.
I bet that's made everyone's day. smile

Smileless2012 Sat 31-Jul-21 16:24:38

Well I'm pleased for them as I am for anyone with the same news.

MissAdventure Sat 31-Jul-21 16:26:36

Me too.
It doesn't affect me one way or another.

Good luck to them but this isn’t helping the world’s overpopulation.

Well that'll be another one for him to support when it all goes horribly wrong. No wonder he can't manage on his PM's salary.

I'm sure he'll find an eager tory donor to support it. He's an expert freeloader...

She had a miscarriage earlier this year, so hope all is well this time.

Perhaps help if he concentrated on the job he has in hand (oh dear that could have two meanings reading it back) 😂😂😂

I thought he couldn’t afford to live on his meagre wage so how can he afford to have another child?

Dickens Sat 31-Jul-21 18:01:34

I dislike the man intensely but hope the pregnancy goes well for his wife and that the baby is healthy and happy.
What more can you say if you're not a 'Boris' fan? I can't get excited about it, but neither do I wish them ill luck.

It made me feel quite sick.

I do understand that some people want to have large families and that is their right. But I made a decision to only have two children because I was worried about world over population.

mokryna Sat 31-Jul-21 18:23:50

Is that the seventh or eighth?

Sick?! Good grief.

JaneJudge Sat 31-Jul-21 18:25:24

It's a shame they are both so short

Callistemon Sat 31-Jul-21 18:26:36

Perhaps Carrie will choose to have just two, Maybee
But I'm puzzling how this works out with world population ....

I hope all goes well this time for Carrie's sake. I wouldn't wish ill on a pregnant woman.

MissAdventure Sat 31-Jul-21 18:26:55

Short?
Are they?

Callistemon Sat 31-Jul-21 18:28:48

Short?

I'm a bit shorter than Carrie so what does that make me?
And I'm 5 inches taller than a couple of my friends!

lemongrove Sat 31-Jul-21 18:30:00

No they aren’t MissA ...not at all 😄

JaneJudge Sat 31-Jul-21 18:32:34

Yes they are short!

GrannyGravy13 Sat 31-Jul-21 18:38:18

Mr.Johnson is 5’9”
Mrs.Johnson is 5’5”

JaneJudge Sat 31-Jul-21 18:39:24

he is 5ft 8, that is quite small for a blonde man in his 50s. 5ft 5 is hardly even average for a woman in their 30s these days. I think they both fall under the petite banner

GrannyGravy13 Sat 31-Jul-21 18:39:25

Oops premature posting…

I am 5’2” so I do not consider the Johnsons to be short, more like average height.

petite clothing for females is for those under 5’2”
