Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern has announced this morning that she is expecting a child this June. Her partner Clarke Gayford will take up the role as stay-at-home Dad and will follow her movements around the country so she can be with the child as much as possible.
Jacinda plans to take 6 weeks off after she gives birth in which Winston Peters will be acting Prime Minister.
The only other instance in which a world leader has given birth whilst on the job is over in Pakistan in which Benazir Bhutto went back to work the next day. A little challenging we think!
