Jacinda Ardern is a New Zealand politician and Member of Parliament. In 2017 she became leader of the New Zealand Labour Party and was elected Prime Minister of New Zealand. She is the country's third female prime minister, and the country's youngest. She has been acknowledged with multiple global recognitions, and was named on TIME magazine's '100 Most Influential People of 2019' list, and Forbes magazine's '25 Most Powerful Female Political Leaders of 2017' list. She lives in New Zealand with her partner, Clarke Gayford, a television presenter and host of popular fishing documentary show Fish of the Day. In 2018 they welcomed their first child, Neve Te Aroha Ardern Gayford, and Ardern became only the second elected leader in the world to give birth while in office. Three months later, she made international news when she brought Gayford, who is Neve's primary caregiver, together with Neve to the United Nations General Assembly meeting in New York.
