Michael Gove Biography, Wiki

Michael Gove or Graeme Andrew Logan was born on 26 August 1967. His biological mother, whom he originally believed to have been an unmarried Edinburgh student, was in fact a 23-year-old cookery demonstrator. Gove regarded his birthplace as Edinburgh until it was revealed in a biography in 2019 that he was born in a maternity hospital in Fonthill Road, Aberdeen. Logan was put into care soon after he was born.

At the age of four months he was adopted by a Labour-supporting couple in Aberdeen, Ernest and Christine Gove, by whom he was brought up. After he joined the Gove family, Logan’s name was changed to Michael Andrew Gove. His adoptive father, Ernest, ran a fish processing business and his adoptive mother, Christine, was a lab assistant at the University of Aberdeen, before working at the Aberdeen School for the Deaf.

Gove, his adoptive parents and his sister Angela lived in a small property in the Kittybrewster area of Aberdeen, before relocating to Rosehill Drive.

After university, when applying for a job at the Conservative Research Department, he was told he was “insufficiently political” and “insufficiently Conservative”, so he turned to journalism.

Gove met the journalist Sarah Vine in 1998, when he was comment editor and she was arts editor at The Times. They married in 2001 and have two children – a daughter born in 2003 and a son born in 2004. Gove lives in Earl’s Court, having formerly lived in Notting Hill, North Kensington and Mayfair.

Gove contracted H1N1 swine flu during the 2009 influenza pandemic. Gove is a supporter of Queens Park Rangers Football Club.

In July 2021, a joint statement on behalf of Vine and Gove said: “Michael and Sarah have agreed to separate and they are in the process of finalising their divorce.”

Michael Gove Sarah Vine Split

Michael Gove and his wife Sarah Vine have announced their divorce. They have been married for 20 years since they tied the knot in 2001. They have two children.

Tory Cabinet Office Minister Gove, 53, and journalist Vine, 54, went public with their separation on Friday.

A statement on behalf of the couple said: “Michael and Sarah have agreed to separate and they are in the process of finalising their divorce.

“They will continue to support their two children and they remain close friends. The family politely ask for privacy at this time and will not be providing any further comment.”

Recently, columnist Sarah said Matt Hancock’s affair with Gina Coladangelo was “entirely predictable” because marriages suffer when one partner works in politics.

She wrote: “The problem with the wife who has known you since way before you were king of the world is that she sees through your façade… She knows that, deep down inside, you are not the Master of the Universe you purport to be.”

In her Mail On Sunday column, she added: “Ministers are surrounded by people telling them how brilliant they are. Their departments treat them like feudal barons. Their every whim is treated as law. No one ever says No to them.
