Who is Liz Truss's husband Hugh O'Leary?

Foreign Secretary Liz Truss is married to Hugh O'Leary.

O'Leary works as an accountant, which Truss is also qualified as.

His age and birthday are not public but he is thought to be a similar age to his wife, who was born in 1961.

He attended the London School of Economics, which the MP has thanked for producing her husband.

She joked: "Whenever I want a late night discussion about supply side reform or econometrics, there’s always someone on hand."

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

She told You magazine of their date: "I invited him ice skating and he sprained his ankle."

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

Truss and O'Leary wed in 2000, just three years after they met.

Their marriage hit a rocky patch when her 2006 affair with former Tory MP Mark Field was made public.

Although Truss' marriage survived, Field's broke down the same year and ended in divorce.

The pair have remained private about that time and in 2006 O'Leary said: "I don't want to talk."

Truss has said in an interview since that she is "really happily married" and the couple is believed to have patched things up.

For Valentine's Day 2019, Truss posted a picture of herself with her husband captioned: "Love of my life."

Although their ages have not been publicly confirmed by the would-be PM, their birthdays have been posted on Truss' Instagram.

In March 2020, Truss posted a pic on Instagram of a birthday cake saying "Frances 14", so she is thought to have been born in 2006.

The MP shared a picture of another birthday cake on November 20, 2018, with icing spelling out "Liberty 10", which would make her birth year 2008.

Truss said in an interview in 2018 that she had locked her daughter's phone in a box to restrict her screen time.

She told BBC's Pienaar's Politics: "I'm known as the phone jailer in our household.
