What did politicians say?
Downing Street would not comment on the reports, but Tory MPs and ministers sent their congratulations to the couple.
Minister for Children and Families and Chelmsford MP Vicky Ford said: “Many congratulations to Boris Johnson and Carrie Symonds and big love to Wilf.
“So many weddings have been delayed and disrupted by Covid. Life is always better with love.”

Fellow Labour MP Tonia Antoniazzi suggested the “emergency marriage plan” was an attempt to “deflect from negative press” from Mr Cummings.
She added: “They know he won’t be able to plan one in Chequers because he won’t be PM next year…”

Journalism in Britain is under threat. The government is becoming increasingly authoritarian and our media is run by a handful of billionaires, most of whom reside overseas and all of them have strong political allegiances and financial motivations.
Our mission is to hold the powerful to account. It is vital that free media is allowed to exist to expose hypocrisy, corruption, wrongdoing and abuse of power. But we can't do it without you.
