  • New Zealand's 'First Baby' Neve makes history with United Nations debut alongside Jacinda Ardern news

    New Zealand’s so-called “First Baby” - the three-month-old daughter of prime minister Jacinda Ardern -  has made her debut on the international political stage, appearing at a peace summit at the United Nations with her mother. Ms Ardern kissed Neve Te Aroha before addressing the summit, during which the baby was held by Clarke Gayford, Ms Ardern’s partner. Mr Gayford sent an image of his daughter’s United Nations security pass, which playfully listed her title as “First Baby”. "Because everyone on Twitter's been asking to see Neve's UN ID, staff here whipped one up," he wrote. "I wish I could have captured the startled look on a Japanese delegation inside the UN yesterday who walked into a meeting room in the middle of a nappy change. Great yarn for her 21st." Because everyone on twitter's been asking to see Neve's UN id, staff here whipped one up. I wish I could have captured the startled look on a Japanese delegation inside UN yesterday who walked into a meeting room in the middle of a nappy change. Great yarn for her 21st.— Clarke Gayford (@NZClarke) September 24, 2018 Ms Ardern, 38, is her country’s youngest leader and the first to take maternity leave. She is only the second leader in modern history to give birth while in office, after Pakistan's Benazir Bhutto in 1990. Ms Ardern said she and her partner made “a very practical decision” to take Neve with them into the United Nations summit in New York. “Neve is actually nearby me most of the time in New Zealand, she's just not always caught,” she said.

CLARY/AFP Ms Ardern has been feted by the United States media during her visit and appeared on NBC’s Today Show shortly after her arrival. She joked that taking her daughter on a seventeen-hour flight “at the time felt on par” with running the country. "But between Clarke and I we managed it," she said. "You don't know until you are there of course, but [motherhood] has met my expectations, the joy though has far surpassed my expectations."
