Ardern pregnant

The Herald reports:

Minister Jacinda Ardern has announced she is pregnant with her first child, due in June.

Ardern discovered she was pregnant just six days before she became Minister-elect. announced NZ First would form a coalition with Labour on October 19.

Ardern shared the delightful news on social media saying that she was excited about the pregnancy.

“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,” she wrote on Instagram.

Congratulations to Jacinda and Clarke. As I have found out, becoming a parent is life changing. It is hard to put into words how your focus changes when you have a wee one so dependent on you. He or she becomes the most important thing in your life.

Parenthood is of course very challenging, and more so with a busy job such as Minister. But Benazir Bhutto managed to do it while PM of Pakistan at age 33 and Marissa Mayer had twins at age 37 while CEO of Yahoo.
