In recent years bettors have become quite fond of the novelty market, particularly picking celebrity affairs to wager on. Among relationship statuses and divorce predictions, there are also lines on baby names. The latest public person to hit the betting agencies is the UK Prime Minister. Have a look at Boris Johnson’s baby predictions.
The incumbent’s personal life is just as stormy as his Brexit delivery campaign. Soon after taking up the position, he announced a divorce from his wife of 26 years and moved in with Carrie Symonds. They became the first unmarried couple to live in Downing Street. However, that’s about to change as Johnson and Symonds are said to be engaged and expecting their first child together. Following the official statement, online sportsbooks sites in the UK launched a market on the name of their baby. What will the PM call the latest of his brood?

Unlike his partner, the incumbent is an experienced father of five. He prefers to maintain privacy where it concerns his family and usually avoids questions about his kids. It looks like he was going to pull off the same strategy this time either, fiercely denying any rumors. Symonds, on the other hand, is a PR manager and recognizes an opportunity when it arises.
The soon-to-be mother made headlines in online sportsbook news in the UK past February, revealing her pregnancy on social media. Many political experts questioned the timing of the announcement as Home Office permanent secretary Philip Rutnam resigned the same day. The couple expects their baby in early summer, which means they have been keeping it a secret for months.
On the second thought, Johnson and Symonds are still going discreet on the gender or the name of the baby. Therefore, Betway Sportsbook tipsters have conducted their predictions on the matter. Looks like the bookmakers generally believe the sixth child of the PM will be a boy. As things stand, the incumbent’s first name Alexander leads the race with a 9.00 odds rate. Next up are James, after Johnson’s grandfather, and Matthew as a nod to Symonds’ father. Some family names as Stanley, Jo and Ali are also trading, but at much higher odds.
What if it’s a girl?
At this point, Britain’s first couple gives little clue as to whether they are expecting a son or daughter. They will probably throw a baby shower to announce the gender or reveal it after Symonds gives birth. The bookmakers have laid odds on names for girls, giving Alexandra the edge. While Carrie is not listed, Johnson’s fiancée has also led to a name bets with Josephine, her mother’s name, priced at 15.00 at Betway Sportsbook. Meanwhile, the name of the PM’s mother, Charlotte is out of the books, despite being the initial frontrunner.
Elsewhere, Royal Family names have also been included but sport less popularity. Consequently, Amelia has the closest shot with a 23.00 odds rate, followed by Diana and Elizabeth both scaled at 26.00.
