New Zealand prime minister Jacinda Ardern has given birth to a girl at Auckland City Hospital.

Ardern’s pregnancy has been international news since it was first announced on 19 January, shortly after she won office.

“Welcome to our village wee one,” Ardern wrote on Instagram on Thursday, having uploaded a picture of her holding her baby while her partner, TV presenter, Clarke Gayford put his arm around her. 

The baby arrived at 4.45pm - shortly before 6am UK time - and weighed 3.1kgs, she said.
