New Zealand PM Jacinda Ardern announces pregnancy

"Aside from her infectious excitement, it's refreshing to see her so deftly sweep aside any potential arguments that she can't be both prime minister and a mother".

Ardern took to Twitter to announce that she and her partner Clarke Gayford were expecting a child, and that Gayford would become a stay-at-home dad.

"We thought 2017 was a big year!"

The Green Party has congratulated PM Jacinda Ardern on her pregnancy, saying "that a woman can be the Prime Minister of New Zealand and choose to have a family while in office".

"As is the case when I am overseas, Mr. Peters will act as prime minister, working with my office while staying in touch with me", Ardern explained, the New Zealand Herald reports. I acknowledge those women.

Asked how she managed, Ardern replied: "It's just what ladies do", evoking the sympathy of women the world over who just get on with it while struggling with first-trimester nausea.

Cheteshwar Pujara became the first and only Indian batsman to get run out in both the innings of a Test match. They had joined hands with South Africa at 3/2 and on Tuesday, they continued from where they left.

Later that morning, Ardern cheerfully confirmed with reporters outside her house that she will be taking six weeks maternity leave but has no plans to abandon her post as leader of New Zealand.

Ardern's rise to power has generated intense interest in her personal life and drew comparisons with other youthful leaders such as France's Emmanuel Macron and Canada's Justin Trudeau. And the former UK Green party leader Natalie Bennett saw it as "another landmark passed for women in politics".

"But as many couples do in the early stages, we kept it to ourselves", she said. "I am not the first woman to multitask".

"I'm not the first woman to work and have a baby", Ardern said in a press conference, NBC News reports. "I sympathise with these women, as well as all of those women who have suffered morning sickness". "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 New Zealand Prime Minister discovered that she was pregnant in October previous year, days before her swearing-in, after her predecessor Bill English stepped down. He is host of the popular TV show Fish of the Day.
