Wellington: It is business as usual for Jacinda Ardern. Seven days after the announcement of her pregnancy, the New Zealand Prime Minister is out and about under grey skies on a chilly morning in Dunedin to perform that staple of politicians – unveiling a plaque on a historic building.
Addressing the re-opening of the city’s 115-year-old courthouse, Ardern speaks confidently about the priorities of her government – the need for it to protect the country’s heritage, its environment and the future of its children, The Guardian reported.
Ardern appears slightly taken aback by the interest in her pending motherhood. “I’m just pregnant, not incapacitated,” she said. “Like everyone else who has found themselves pregnant before, I’m just keeping on going,” she added.
