New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern has confirmed that she is pregnant.
In an announcement posted on social media, the 37-year-old Labour leader announced that she is expecting her first child with her partner Clarke Gayford.
And we thought 2017 was a big year! Clarke and I are really excited that in June our team will expand from two to three, and that we’ll be joining the many parents out there who wear two hats. I’ll be Prime Minister AND a mum, and Clarke will be “first man of fishing” and stay at home dad. I think it’s fair to say that this will be a wee one that a village will raise, but we couldn’t be more excited. I know there will be lots of questions, and we’ll answer all of them (I can assure you we have a plan all ready to go!) But for now, bring on 2018.
