WikiLeaks boss Julian Assange fathered two kids inside Ecuadorian embassy with lawyer

The mother of two children WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange reportedly fathered while living inside the Ecuadorian embassy in London went public about their secret family Saturday to plead for his release amid coronavirus concerns.

"I love Julian deeply and I am looking forward to marrying him", she said.

Donald Trump "offered Julian Assange a US presidential pardon" or "some way out", if the WikiLeaks founder agreed to say Russian Federation wasn't involved in an email hacking scandal that marred the US Presidential election. Gabriel is now aged two and has a one-year-old brother, Max.

He had to watch his fiancee Stella Morris, 37, give birth over video link while he was seeking refuge at the embassy.

Morris detailed the revelations shortly after the report emerged, in a video posted on social media by Wikileaks chronicling her five-year relationship with Assange and the arrival of their two children.

Their first child, Gabriel, was born in 2016 before the couple's engagement in 2017 while their second, Max, was born in February 2019.

The couple now have two young children Gabriel, three, and Max, one, and Ms Morris said she had gone to great lengths to shield the children from the climate that surrounds their father.

She said she was revealing their relationship now because their lives were "on the brink" and she feared her fiancee could die.

"We fell in love", she said in the almost 12-minute film, outlining how the romance began in 2015 - three years into his seven-year stay at the Ecuadorian embassy in central London.

She says she met Assange in 2011 when she was a legal researcher and he was living at the Ecuadorian embassy, and the two developed a strong bond.

She anxious about the coronavirus taking root in the prison and Assange's "increased risk of exposure".

She also fears for his mental well-being since he is "effectively in solitary confinement for 23 and half hours a day". "I understood that the powers that were against Julian were ruthless and had ... no bounds to it".

She added: "Julian's poor physical health puts him at serious risk, like many other vulnerable people, and I don't believe he will survive infection with coronavirus".

Assange has consistently denied the allegations and his supporters have accused the United States and United Kingdom governments of an attack on free speech.

Assange's extradition hearing is fixed for May 18 after a judge at Westminster Magistrates' Court in London rejected calls for an adjournment until September over what his legal team said were "insuperable" difficulties preparing his case because of the Covid-19 pandemic.

US prosecutors accuse Assange of conspiring with Army intelligence analyst Chelsea Manning to crack a password, hack into a Pentagon computer and release hundreds of thousands of secret diplomatic cables and military files on the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.
