I live in New York. I am a comedian, writer and actor. My day job is blogging for VH1.com. I write about the silly things celebrities and pop stars do, so you know...God's work.
You may have seen my writing on many other reputable websites (McSweeney's, The Huffington Post, Hello Giggles, xojane.com, The Hairpin, Splitsider, The FW, etc.). I also write crazy blogs about Game of Thrones, Magneto and Jeff Goldblum.
Life's weird, right?
There are rumors too that he was conceived before his parents were married, right
Yeah. He was born eight months (some sources say seven?? I’m too lazy to do math) after the wedding. At the time, they said he was premature, but given her later sexual escapades (she really liked sex, okay?) people think the relationship was consummated before the wedding. Both of his parents seem pretty liberal sexually. Lord Randolph Churchill was totally okay with Jennie having affairs with Dukes and Princes and Kings because it helped him politically. It’s also theorized that he had contracted syphilis shortly after Winston’s birth and so there’s a rumor that he cut off marital “relations” with Jennie and was fine with her getting hers elsewhere. Most people believe Winston’s brother Jack was the product of one of Jennie’s many affairs.
Some people still say Winston Churchill was premature. By and large, no historian doubts that Winston Churchill was legitimate. I mean, I’m sure there are a couple who think so, but it’s not really in question the same way his brother’s paternity is. It’s just a matter of whether he was conceived before or after the marriage.
When people gave Winston IRL shit about it, he is known to have remarked, "Although present on the occasion, I have no clear recollection of the events leading up to it."
The Jennie Jerome wiki has a decent account of this. The syphilis story is from my mom, who read this massive biography on her, and if you check out Lord Randolph’s page it comes up, but there’s no definitive proof because no one back then would keep such records about someone that high ranking.
