Prime Minister's baby wrapped up warm in gifts from family, public

It's not the Lindo Wing but it did the trick

As the prime minister of New Zealand, Adern, 37, becomes one of few elected national leaders in modern history to give birth while in office.

Ardern posted an Instagram message on Friday thanking "our wonderful midwife Libby" who she said was not only incredible at her job but also made the mac and cheese. 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.

But she is now facing the realities of motherhood - plans for a public appearance with her baby have been canceled twice. "I'm sure we're going through all of the emotions new parents go through, but at the same time feeling so grateful for all the kindness and best wishes from so many people".

"It's been great", she told reporters at her last major public event before giving birth. It's the first child for her and partner Clarke Gayford.

Ardern announced her pregnancy in January, just three months after a stunning upset victory that propelled her to the top of the center-left Labour Party and into the prime minister's office in October. (Pakistan Prime Minister Benazir Bhutto was the last to do so, in 1990.) Ardern was elected in October of previous year and announced that she was expecting in January.

That daughter, Bakhtawar Bhutto Zardari, congratulated Ardern on Twitter on Thursday. The baby girl shares the same birth date as Bhutto.

At the time Fleetwood posted, Koepka was 1 over and had to preserve par over 12 holes to maintain his lead. However, playing with the lead at the start of the final round meant that Koepka was under pressure.

"We're a family that are fairly well grounded and to see this on the worldwide media is absolutely different - I can say that without a shadow of a doubt", Ross Ardern told RNZ. "So, I'm dying to see it and hold her and just see what's she's like".

New Zealand's Acting Prime Minister extended "his very best wishes" to the new family.

"I think it says something great about our country that we're all celebrating together this birth and that once again we're leading the world in showing that anything is possible".

The British Prime Minister Theresa May sent a lovely message, along with New Zealand MP Nikki Kaye and the Governor-General of New Zealand Patsy Reddy.

"This is a sign of our maturity as a country and its acceptance that combining career and family is a choice which women are free to make", Clark wrote in an email.

She said women often tended to be older when they entered politics.
