Her partner Clarke Gayford, held the three-month-old as she and the other leaders spoke.

This isn’t the first time the 38-year-old has etched her name into the history books as a world leader and a mum.

In July this year, she became the first New Zealand prime minister to give birth whilst in office, and the second ever elected head of government to do so, after the late Pakistani prime minister Benazir Bhutto had her first daughter, Bakhtawar, in 1990.

Ardern also became the first world leader ever to take maternity leave.

During a hospital press conference in June, Ardern spoke about how she chose the unique name for her new daughter.

“We chose Neve because we just liked it,” she said. “When we met her, we thought she looked like she suited the name.

“Also it means, in various forms, bright and radiant and snow, which seemed like a good combination for Matariki (Maori new year) and for solstice.”

The couple also added the name ‘Te Aroha’ which was their way of “reflecting the amount of love” Neve had been shown before she arrived and “all of the names we were gifted along the way (by various iwi or Maori people)”.
