New Zealand PM's three-month-old 'First Baby' makes United Nations debut

Pictures from inside the venue in NY showed Jacinda Ardern, 38, kissing and playing with three-month-old Neve, while her partner Clarke Gayford sat next to them.

She's understood to be the first ever female world leader to bring their baby to a United Nations general assembly meeting.

Gayford took to Twitter to share details about his and little Neve's first time at the United Nations, including a photo of the "first baby" ID.

Jacinda Ardern is serving as the 40th and current Prime Minister of New Zealand, having been was elected in 2017.

Spokesman Stephane Dujarric said the United Nations was delighted to see baby Neve in the General Assembly hall.

Ardern will meet with other leaders at the General Assembly.

Ardern joined a high powered line up of guests at that event and was seated around one of the top tables with US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and the President of the European Union Donald Tusk. "Just five percent of the world's leaders are women, so we need to make them as welcome here as possible". Ardern returned to the office last month after a six-week absence after giving birth, during which Deputy Prime Minister Winston Peters acted as caretaker.

"Neve is actually nearby me most of the time in New Zealand, she's just not always caught", Ardern said.

New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern, center, holds her daughter Neve while sitting with her partner Clarke Gayford at United Nations Headquarters in NY on September 24, 2018. Ardern has paid for her partner's travel to NY.

"If Jacinda Ardern can take her child to the UN General Assembly, I'm not going to feel so guilty about taking my toddler to cafes", Caitlin Chang wrote.

The couple has said Neve will accompany her mother on official business because Ardern is breastfeeding. Jacinda had already said that they'd be coming to the USA as a family and by god she's going to go through with it and nobody can stop her, thanks.

Ardern's fellow panellists commented on how peaceful Neve was waiting backstage with her father and Ardern joked that she "wasn't at 3:30 this morning".

Ardern appeared with her infant daughter and husband at the United Nations on Monday evening.
