Hugh O’Leary

The Conservative Party has elected LIZ TRUSS as their new leader and the new prime minister of the United Kingdom.

Ms. Truss has kept her family life largely private, but that is about to change now that she has been announced as the next British Prime Minister.

Who is Liz Truss’s spouse, Hugh O’Leary?

Liz Truss is married to Hugh O’Leary, who is happily at her side and supports all of her political endeavors.

O’Leary is a qualified accountant, as is his wife. However, he also tried to get into politics.

According to The Times, he ran unsuccessfully as a Conservative candidate in the 2002 local elections.

Despite the defeat, he continued to play a role in the party, often campaigning with the Tories in Greenwich.

His age and his birthday are not public, but he is believed to be a similar age to his wife, born in 1975.

When can you expect the new British Prime Minister Liz Truss to give her first speech?

She attended the London School of Economics, to which she credits Truss for bringing her husband with her.

She jokingly said, “There’s always someone there when I want to have a late-night debate about supply-side reform or econometrics.”

The couple met at the 1997 Conservative Party Conference and went on their first date soon after.

Of their first meeting, Truss said: “I took him ice skating and he sprained his ankle.”

When did Liz Truss and Hugh O’Leary get married?

Truss and O’Leary got married in 2000, just three years after the meeting.

Her marriage had a tough time when her relationship with former Tory MP Mark Field went public in 2006.

Though Truss’s marriage survived, Field’s collapsed that same year and ended in divorce.

The couple went private during this time and in 2006 O’Leary said, “I don’t want to talk.”

Truss has since stated in an interview that she is “really happily married” and that the couple is said to have brought things back on track.

For Valentine’s Day 2019, Truss posted a photo of herself with her husband with the caption “The love of my life”.

This was one of the few times she revealed details about her husband.

In September 2022, Hugh O’Leary looked happy as he sat next to his wife as she was named the new British Prime Minister.

Do Liz Truss and Hugh O’Leary have children?

The couple has two daughters: Liberty and Frances.

Although their age has not been publicly confirmed, their birthdays have been posted on Truss Instagram.

In March 2020, Truss posted a photo of a birthday cake on Instagram with the caption “Frances 14”, suggesting she was born in 2006.

The MP shared a photo of another birthday cake that read “Liberty 10” on November 20, 2018, which would make 2008 her birth year.

Truss has already talked about her daughter Liberty’s influence on her style of hers, with the MP telling you, “She takes Me to places I wouldn’t think too much about.”

Truss said in a 2018 interview with Pienaar’s Politics that he locked her daughter’s phone in a box to limit screen time.

She told BBC Pienaar’s Politics: “I am known in our house as a telephone clerk.

“I think the best way is to physically close it.”

In 2022, Truss announced that he had enlisted her daughter’s help for her leadership campaign, with Frances assisting her on the social media front.

Speaking to the Telegraph, Truss said, “My eldest daughter works in the digital team.

The couple has been together for more than two decades. They have raised two daughters, who are now adults and pursuing their career paths. But what’s most important is that Liz Truss always stands by her husband’s side when it comes to politics as well as philanthropy efforts. She is known for donating generously to charity causes and also supporting other charitable organizations in the same way.

It seems like Liz Truss may be a role model for many women today.
