Boris Johnson has found himself embroiled in speculation after being linked to the break-up of a close friend’s marriage.
The friend, former art consultant Helen Macintyre, is new mum to a baby girl, and there are now rumours linking Boris to the baby, called Hebe. The Daily Mail recently alleged that Helen’s husband, Pierre Rolin, was not Hebe’s father following a DNA test.
Helen, 36, and her husband separated in November last year. Pierre acknowledged that he wasn’t the biological father to Helen’s baby, and no father is named on the 8-month-old’s birth certificate.
“The newborn has shocking wild red hair and bright blue eyes – we were all saying she looked a lot more like Boris than Pierre, who is a French-Canadian with dark hair,” a source told the Daily Mail.
There has been no confirmation from Boris’s mayoral office other than, “Boris never talks about his private life.”
