Who is Liz Truss’ Husband Hugh O’Leary?

In the year 2000, Truss tied the knot with Hugh O’Leary. Hugh O’Leary has a background in accounting. The couple is the parents of two little girls.

Ms Truss and Hugh O’Leary first became acquainted with one another at the 1997 Conservative Party conference and soon after went on a date.

The current Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs has previously discussed the couple’s first date, during which she stated, “I invited him ice skating and he sprained his ankle.”

However, he was unfazed by the incident, and just three years after it took place, he and his partner tied the knot and moved in together in Greenwich, which is located in southeast London.

After completing his education at the London School of Economics in econometrics and mathematical economics, Mr O’Leary is now practising as a chartered accountant (LSE).



These days, he is the househusband of their two daughters, Frances and Liberty, and he works from home as a houseworker.
