Jacinda Ardern makes history with baby Neve at UN general assembly

New Zealand prime minister Jacinda Ardern has made history as the first world leader to attend the United Nations general assembly meeting with her baby in tow.

Ardern appeared with her three-month-old daughter at the UN on Monday evening, and played with her before giving a speech at the Nelson Mandela peace summit. While she spoke, Ardern’s partner Clarke Gayford held the three-month-old baby on his lap.

Ardern gave birth to Neve Te Aroha at Auckland Hospital on 21 June and returned to work in early August after taking six weeks maternity leave.

The prime minister is continuing to breastfeed her daughter, meaning Neve had to travel with her to New York for the six-day trip.
