Victoria Starmer is a solicitor – and the pair married in 2007.
Keir and Victoria reportedly live together in their £1.75 million house in Camden, North London.

The labour leader was a human rights lawyer before becoming an MP, and co-founded Doughty Street Chambers in 1990.
The father-of-two has worked to eradicate the death penalty in the Caribbean, and Africa, and most recently in Taiwan.
In 2014 he was awarded a knighthood for “services to law and criminal justice,” although he prefers not to be referred to as “sir”.
Mr. Starmer was elected as Labour MP for Holborn and St Pancras in May 2015.
He was made the Shadow Secretary of State for Exiting the EU in October 2016.
He announced his candidacy for Labour leader in January, before the strong favourite won to take over from Jeremy Corbyn.

Their 10-year-old son and eight-year-old daughter live with them in North London, according to the Ham & High.

The millionaire barrister has taken over the party’s leadership after Labour’s crushing general election defeat in December.
