New Zealand’s Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern has just announced that she’s pregnant.
Posting on Instagram, Ardern said that she and her partner Clarke were expecting a new addition to the family in June this year.
Clarke is going to be ‘first man of fishing’ and a stay-at-home dad, while Ardern runs the country while also being a full-time mum.
She wrote: ‘And we thought 2017 was a big year!
‘Clarke and I are really excited that in June our team will expand from two to three, and that we’ll be joining the many parents out there who wear two hats.
‘I’ll be Prime Minister AND a mum, and Clarke will be “first man of fishing” and stay-at-home dad.
‘I think it’s fair to say that this will be a wee one that a village will raise, but we couldn’t be more excited.’
The PM then signed off: ‘Bring on 2018.’
Ardern, 37, became the country’s youngest prime minister since 1856 when she formed her centre-left coalition government in October.
After making the exciting announcement, she was flooded with support and congratulations.
‘Being a working mum just changed forever,’ one user, zoeikin, wrote. ‘Thank you Jacinda!!!’
Another, montrosememories, wrote: ‘Congratulations!!! I’m sure you’ll be equally as great at being a mum as what you are as the Prime Minister!!’
