Prime Minister Boris Johnson has somewhat committed to taking paternity leave after his partner Carrie Symonds gave birth to his child later this year, but quickly said he couldn't remember the question.
At a press conference on Tuesday to reveal his government's coronavirus action plan, Johnson was asked if he would take paternity leave – if fathers can take two weeks off after the birth of their child.
"I think the answer is almost certainly yes," said Johnson before adding, "I don't remember what the question was."
At the weekend, the couple announced that they were expecting a baby in early summer and were engaged to get married. Johnson is the first British Prime Minister to have been married in office for 250 years.
on, who left office in July and led his conservative party to a decisive election victory in December, announced in September 2018 that he had separated from his wife Marina Wheeler and that they would get a divorce after 25 years of marriage.
He has four children with Wheeler and has fathered at least one other child, but has always refused to comment on how many children he has.
