GRANT SHAPPS announced its candidacy to replace Boris Johnson, who has just resigned as Prime Minister.
As the transport secretary enters a time when he will be under more pressure than ever as he hopes his candidacy will make him the next prime minister, his wife Belinda will be at his side to support him.
Who is Grant Shapps’ wife Belinda?
She attended King David High School before studying at Leeds Metropolitan University.
Since 2009, Belinda has been a partner at AuctionGirl.co.uk – which promises users to “money their mess”.
She was with Grant Shapps when he was diagnosed with Hodgkin’s lymphoma in 1999 and underwent chemotherapy and radiation therapy.
Treatment was successful and the politician completed his final round of chemotherapy the following year.
In 2012, Mr Shapps hailed his wife for her support during this time, telling the Guardian: “She said to me you can’t die, we have too much to do together.
“She was brilliant.”
When did Grant and Belinda Shapps get married?
Grant met Belinda Goldstone in a pub in Leeds in 1995 when Grant was 26 and she was 21.
At first, Belinda didn’t find Grant attractive, but weeks later she decided to reach out to him and sparks flew from there.
She moved to London and in August 1997 they married.
How many children does Grant Shapps have?
Shapps has three children with wife Belinda.
As a result of his chemotherapy treatment, the boys were conceived through IVF.
Grant’s sperm was frozen before treatment began.
Their children are a boy named Hadley and daughter and son twins Tabytha and Noa.
Eldest son Hadley was born in 2001 and twins followed in 2004.
He was able to have children, although he feared he would not if he was diagnosed with cancer.
Mr Shapps told the Express in 2014: “I was told I had cancer and would never have children.”
