After giving birth, New Zealand PM recovers with ‘mac and cheese’
WELLINGTON, New Zealand — New Zealand’s Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern was regaining her strength with macaroni and cheese on Friday and planned to spend at least one more night in an Auckland public hospital with her newborn girl.
Ardern on Thursday became just the second elected world leader to give birth while holding office.
Many hope the 37-year-old will become a role model for combining motherhood with political leadership.
Tributes have come in from around the world, including from Britain’s Queen Elizabeth II and from Google, which posted an image in the shape of a heart on its New Zealand homepage along with the message “Congratulations!”
Ardern posted an Instagram message on Friday thanking “our wonderful midwife Libby.”
“Not only is she incredible at what she does, this morning she made me macaroni and cheese because she heard me mention a wee craving yesterday,” Ardern wrote.
