Carrie Johnson and her husband, former British Prime Minister Boris Johnson, are parents to three children together: son Wilfred, three, daughter Romy, one, and four-month-old baby boy Frank. 

The family live in the countryside village of Brightwell-cum-Sotwell and their idyllic home boasts a huge garden for the kids to play in, as well as its own duck pond.

Carrie, 35, often shares photos of her home life with her Instagram followers, and we can’t help but notice how much her son Wilfred looks like his famous dad Boris, 59. The father and son share the same voluminous blond locks – a hairstyle that is utterly adorable on the three-year-old Wilf, as the couple have nicknamed him.

Below, we’ve found 10 pictures of young Wilfred as his dad’s mini-me…

Young Wilfred’s hair was just like his dad’s when he went trick-or-treating with his sister this year. What a sweet sibling snap.

Carrie shared this sweet snap when she was expecting her third baby, writing: “New team member arriving in just a few weeks. I’ve felt pretty exhausted for much of the last 8 months but we can’t wait to meet this little one. Wilf is v excited about being a big brother again and has been chattering about it nonstop. Don’t think Romy has a clue what’s coming…She soon will!”

Carrie looked overjoyed in this stunning photo, telling fans: “It’s crazy just how fast your babies grow. These pictures were taken by my lovely friend @fultonphoto8raphy nearly 6 months ago.

“Wilf is now looking so grown up and Romy is racing around too, hot on his heels. It goes so fast! Please slow down!”

“Going through the no10 door together for the last time,” posted Carrie.

“I expect Wilf and Romy won’t remember it but they’ve had an incredibly happy start to their lives growing up here. Thank you so much to all the lovely people at Downing Street and at Chequers who have been so incredibly kind to us - particularly to our children. Best of luck to Liz and her family.”

She added: “Wilf has been stroking Romy’s hair, giving big kisses and playing with his matchbox cars right next to her crib, just in case she feels like joining in too.”

Carrie wrote: “Introducing Wilfred Lawrie Nicholas Johnson born on 29.04.20 at 9am.
Wilfred after Boris’ grandfather, Lawrie after my grandfather, Nicholas after Dr Nick Price and Dr Nick Hart - the two doctors who saved Boris’ life last month.

“Thank you so, so much to the incredible NHS maternity team at UCLH that looked after us so well. I couldn’t be happier. My heart is full.”
