This is one of the best examples of how powerful women are that we've seen in a while. Jacinda Ardern, the Prime Minister of New Zealand, made history by attending the United Nations General Assembly with her baby. Her baby also made a milestone by becoming the first child to attend this important international meeting that consisted of the heads of state from around the world, CBS reports.
But she did have her partner.
When it was her turn to speak, her partner Clarke Gayford held the the three-month baby Neve Ardern Gayford.
Although she took 6 weeks of maternity leave, Jacinda Ardern had to go back to her very important role. However she chose to continue breastfeeding her baby, so she could not leave her with others during her 6-day trip to New York. For that reason she decided to travel with her baby and even take her to the UN session.
Of course, she does have help - her partner is accompanying her to all these trips. That said, the money for him and the baby to travel comes out of her own pocket since of course they do not travel for official reasons like she does. But they get it done!
Two major moments for the New Zealand family.
It was also the first time that Jacinda Ardern attended the General Assembly of the UN, so it was an especially big deal - it was her first time there and the first time a mother with her baby in this meeting. She's also only the second world leader to give birth while in office.
