NZ PM Jacinda Ardern, who has rocketed to international fame for giving birth while in office, now has turned heads by bringing her three-month-old daughter Neve into the UN assembly hall.
Jacinda Ardern, 38, is the first female world leader to bring an infant to the United Nations General Assembly and the second world leader to ever give birth while in the office.
Ardern was photographed kissing and bouncing up and down daughter Neve in the main assembly hall next to partner Clarke Gayford, at a plenary meeting known as the Nelson Mandela Peace Summit, which she also addressed.
Gayford tweeted a picture of the infant’s UN diplomatic photo ID that classified her as “New Zealand first baby”.
Because everyone on twitter's been asking to see Neve's UN id, staff here whipped one up.
I wish I could have captured the startled look on a Japanese delegation inside UN yesterday who walked into a meeting room in the middle of a nappy change.
Great yarn for her 21st. pic.twitter.com/838BI96VYX

Ardern has already announced that they would travel as a family to the United Nations in New York, where she will address the General Assembly.
