New Zealand’s Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern got engaged to her longtime partner Clarke Gayford over Easter weekend, reports the Associated Press.
Axar.az reports citing CNN.
A spokesman said the pair got engaged in the beach town of Mahia on the country’s North Island but declined to give further comments, after reporters noticed Ardern wearing a ring on her middle finger on Friday, according to the AP.
Gayford is a host on a television fishing show called Fish of the Day and is their daughter’s main caregiver.
Ardern, 38, met Gayford, 41, at a restaurant awards event in 2012, according to the New Zealand news website Stuff.
The pair have a child, Neve Te Aroha Ardern Gayford, who was born in June 2018. Ardern is the second elected head of state ever to give birth while in office (after Pakistan’s Benazir Bhutto) and the first world leader to bring a baby to the U.N. General Assembly.
