LONDON Ė British Prime Minister Boris Johnson will move into Downing Street with his girlfriend Carrie Symonds, a spokesperson for the British government confirmed on Monday.
The new Tory leader (55) and Symonds (31) will be the first unmarried couple in history to officially reside in the headquarters of the UKís government.
The source said that the couple would officially move on Monday but didnít clarify whether they would settle in the flat above number 10 or, if as the British press had published, they would opt for the more spacious flat above number 11.
Until now, Johnson had lived at Symondís flat in Camberwell, South London.
Both were involved in a late-night altercation that went public as some neighbors called the police, who didnít press any charges.
Unlike the First Lady of the United States, the UKís Prime Ministerís partner can decide to stay out of the official job.
Symonds is the daughter of journalist Matthew Symonds, co- founder of ďThe Independent,Ē and lawyer Josephine Mcaffe.
She currently works as senior advisor for Oceana, a North American organization dedicated to protecting the oceans.
Johnson is still married to Marina Wheeler, his wife for 26 years and mother of four of his five children.
