After giving birth, New Zealand PM craves mac-n-cheese

New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern gave birth to a baby girl on Thursday, becoming one of the few world leaders to do so while in power.

"It's been great", she told reporters at her last major public event before giving birth.

She has yet to announce the name of the child, but a spokesman for her office said "everyone is doing well if not a bit tired" and Ardern spent a lot of time feeding the baby during the night.

Former New Zealand Prime Minister Helen Clark said in an email to The Associated Press that it was a very happy day for Ardern and Gayford and that New Zealanders had taken the news of the pregnancy in their stride.

Nurses said Gayford and Ardern's little girl was "very alert and one hungry baby".

Ms Ardern's office said the shawl wrapped around her daughter in the photograph on her social media post was knitted by Clarke Gayford's mother.

So if you are someone who loves your Nintendo Switch , this is not for you as the other issues include screen burning too. Sony has ignored pressure from the public and from game makers regarding opening the PS4 to cross-platform play.

On June 21, Jacinda Ardern did what countless other working women have done over the ages: She gave birth.

"Welcome to our village wee one", Ardern, 37, wrote on Instagram in announcing the birth. "Welcome to the wonderful world of parenting @jacindaardern & Clarke".

New Zealanders who couldn't be in the country sent love and congratulations from afar.

"In a way being a mum is as old as civilisation itself, but being a modern couple who are tackling parenthood and professionalism is something that we need more of, we need more role models, we need more examples".

Ardern, 37, became New Zealand's youngest prime minister when she took office through a coalition deal a year ago after an inconclusive election, and now becomes the first woman in the country's history to give birth while in office. "Plenty of women have multitasked before me, and I want to acknowledge that", she said when revealing the pregnancy in January.

"It is a woman's decision about when they choose to have children and it should not predetermine whether or not they are given a job or have job opportunities", she said then. Winston Peters, New Zealand's deputy prime minister, has taken over in the meantime, and Ardern is planning to take a six-week leave before returning, the AP reported.
