Who is Jeremy Hunt’s wife Lucia Guo and how many children do they have? – The Sun | The Sun

CONSERVATIVE politician Jeremy Hunt has made several attempts to climb to the top of the party, supported by his wife Lucia Guo.

Lucia has been with the former Foreign Secretary for many years, here's everything you need to know.

Who is Jeremy Hunt's wife Lucia Guo?

Jeremy Hunt's wife Lucia, born 1978, is from the city Xi'an in China.

She moved to the UK prior to meeting the Tory MP and holds British citizenship.

Lucia regularly appeared on Sky TV's China Hour, and presented her own show called Signature Flowers of China.

Together, the couple formed a real estate business called Mare Pond Properties Limited.

In 2019, Lucia watched her husband launch his bid to become the leader of the Conservative Party and was dubbed his "secret weapon".

She is often seen supporting Jeremy at political functions.

When did Jeremy Hunt and Lucia Guo get married?

Jeremy met Lucia at a Hotcourses event in Warwick in 2008.

She worked at the University of Warwick helping to recruit Chinese students to study at the uni.

The MP asked for her email and after swapping contact details, the pair began dating.

It was only a year later that Jeremy popped the question by hiding an engagement ring in the hollow of  a tree during their Christmas eve walk.

The pair, who have an 11 year age gap, married in July 2009 and had a traditional Chinese ceremony in Xi'an.

Hunt says that Lucia "gives as good as she gets," and describes her as the "sparkler" in his and his family's lives.

It was revealed that Lucia's nickname for her hubby is "Big Rice," after her Chinese grandmother struggled to pronounce "Jeremy" and so just called him "Big Mi" meaning "Big Rice".

How many children do they have?

Lucia and Jeremy have three children together.

Their son Jack was born in 2010, with Anna following two years later and youngest Eleanor was born in 2014.

In 2014, Hunt said that he fears his children may face discrimination if immigration is not controlled.

He reasoned that anger against immigrants will increase unless more is done to curb the number of people coming to the UK.
