Diaper change, peace summit: New Zealand’s ‘First Baby’ makes UN debut


UNITED NATIONS: With a mock security pass that lists her as the “First Baby” of New Zealand, 3-month-old Neve Te Aroha made her United Nations debut on Monday when her mother – Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern – spoke at a peace summit in the General Assembly.

Her partner Clarke Gayford, who is the baby`s full-time caregiver, sat with the New Zealand delegation and held Neve as Ardern spoke. Ardern, 38, is only the second elected leader to give birth while in office, after Pakistan`s Benazir Bhutto in 1990.

Gayford posted a photo on Twitter earlier on Monday of Neve`s security pass for the annual gathering of world leaders in New York this week.
