Justin Welby says DNA results 'change nothing'

The Archbishop of Canterbury, Justin Welby, says he is not embarrassed over the revelation that he is the illegitimate son of the last private secretary to Sir Winston Churchill.

Genetic testing revealed that Gavin Welby, who was briefly married to The Most Reverend Justin Welby's mother, was not his biological father.

''Nothing has changed. ... I am who I am in Jesus Christ, and nothing more or less than that,'' he said. ''Nothing changes.''
