BREAKING: Jacinda Ardern & Clarke Gayford Have Welcomed Their First Child
Congratulations are in order for PM Jacinda Ardern & Clarke Gayford, who have welcomed the birth of their first child.
The couple - who began dating in 2013 - are now the proud parents of a healthy baby girl.
Jacinda took to Instagram to announce the news & posted the sweetest pic with her newborn daughter.
"Welcome to our village wee one. Feeling very lucky to have a healthy baby girl that arrived at 4.45pm weighing 3.31kg (7.3lb)," she wrote.
"Thank you so much for your best wishes and your kindness. We're all doing really well thanks to the wonderful team at Auckland City Hospital."
And in case you needed another reason to celebrate, our PM has made history as the second world leader to give birth while in office.

#babywatch is like that Netflix series you feel compelled to watch until the end despite feeling unsure about the plot.
