The Prime Minister of New Zealand showed newborn daughter
The Prime Minister of New Zealand Jacinda Ardern appeared before reporters three days after delivery and provided the name of the newborn daughter Neve Te Aroha. About it reports Reuters.
Ardern was released from Auckland hospital on Sunday, June 24, with her husband Clark Gavarda and baby girl.
“We really just wanted to thank you and to say that we feel good,” said the Prime Minister.
The first girl’s name Neve means “bright and shining” and “snow”. According to parents, the name testifies to her birthday on the shortest winter day of the year. The second name, Te Aroha, represents “love” in one of the national languages of the country, the indigenous people of New Zealand Maori.
Ardern gave birth to a girl weighing 3.31 pounds on Thursday, June 21. While 37-year-old Prime Minister will leave for child care, which will last six months, the acting head of the government will become its Deputy Winston Peters. Woman became the first ever elected leader of a state who gave birth while in office.
Jacinda Ardern became Prime Minister of New Zealand in the fall of 2017. She is the leader of the labour party. The politician repeatedly referred to her feminist views.
