Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern announces her pregnancy


Jacinda Ardern has announced that her and her partner Clarke Gayford are expecting a baby in June!

The Prime Minister posted on Facebook to announce the news, using fishing hooks to represent the family. In the post she says she will be joining "the many parents out there who wear two hats"

In her full post, Jacinda says:

"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."

Last year Jacinda Ardern spoke out about how it's 'totally unacceptable' to ask women about baby plans. 

We wish her all the best with her pregnancy and the birth of the little one!
