After last year having a child while in office, New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern has announced she’s also getting married.
Ardern, 38, and longtime partner Clarke Gayford, 41, became engaged while on holiday in the North Island over the Easter break, a spokesman for her office confirmed on Friday.
No wedding date has, however, been announced and they’ve declined requests for further comment.
The couple first met in 2012 and had their first child, Neve Te Aroha Ardern Gayford, in June last year.
Dubbed New Zealand’s “first bloke”, Gayford hosts a television fishing show and has taken on the role of stay-at-home dad since Ardern returned to parliament after a six-week maternity leave.
The prime minister’s pregnancy last year made her a role model as only the second-ever elected female leader to have a child while in office – after Pakistan’s Benazir Bhutto – although she played the milestone down, saying she was not the “first woman to multi-task”.
