Clarke Gayford's response to Jacinda's Vogue cover is awwww-worthy

Proud partner Clarke Gayford may have made a few people go 'awww' when he posted his reaction to Jacinda Ardern's US Vogue photoshoot.

The Prime Minister posed for the iconic fashion and beauty magazine last month, to be published in the upcoming March edition. The first photo was released online on Wednesday, showing her gazing directly into the camera at Auckland's Bethells Beach.

Mr Gayford was eager to share the striking picture with the world.

"Well that's the desktop sorted," he wrote on Twitter, alongside a screenshot of the photo as his computer background.

His post garnered dozens of warm responses.

"This is about the cutest tweet I've ever read," one person commented.

"This is the standard against which all other men's Valentine's Day will be judged," another added.

The couple are expecting their first child together in June - nine months after the election.
