New Zealand's Prime Minister Just Announced She's Having A Baby And People Are So Excited

"Hey world, this is what the future looks like."

Posted on January 19, 2018, at 7:55 a.m. ET

In case you missed it, New Zealand's Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern announced on Friday that she is pregnant and expecting her first child in June.


Ardern first shared the news on social media, saying that she will be "Prime Minister AND a mum" and that her partner, Clarke Gayford, will be a stay-at-home dad.

According to the press release, Ardern discovered she was pregnant on Oct. 13, while she was deep in coalition negotiations and less than a week before she formed a government.

Ardern and Gayford held a press conference on Friday outside their home in Auckland, where Ardern said she is "not the first woman to multitask."

"I'm not the first woman to work and have a baby," she said. "I know these are special circumstances, but I know there are many women who have done this before I am."

Kiwis were so excited by the news.
