Labour leader Ed Miliband broke the news of his impending marriage to lawyer Justine Thornton in Wednesday’s edition of the Doncaster Free Press newspaper.

The leader of Britain’s opposition Labour Party and his long—term partner say they are planning to marry in May.

Labour leader Ed Miliband broke the news of his impending marriage to lawyer Justine Thornton in Wednesday’s edition of the Doncaster Free Press newspaper.

The couple have two sons - a 21 month—old and a four—month—old.

Mr. Miliband - the Member of Parliament for Doncaster - told the paper they agreed around March last year to get married and their plans had not changed after the 41—year—old won a hard—fought Labour leadership battle against his brother, David, in September.
