Breaking all the stereotypes, New Zealand's Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern and her husband Clarke Gayford are trying to respell the definition of parenting. The couple broke the most common fact by being the homemaker as a man and a husband.
New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern gave birth to a baby girl on June 21 this year, the first world leader in nearly 30 years to have a child while in office. According to a Facebook post which reads, "2 days after the baby was born - with midwives, standard in NZ hospitals - she introduced her to the country during a press conference on the nightly news. It was really lovely. She named her Neve Te Aroha. Te Aroha means 'The Love' in Maori. It represents ALL the names that were submitted (upon her request) from various tribes throughout the country, and was her attempt at capturing them all".
What left everyone in surprise that the lady is back to work within 6 weeks while her hubby Clarke stays at home and taking care of their baby leaving his job as a TV host. Not only it's his duty or anything, he is doing it with his love for the family-he have. Not only, Jacinda, he is the trying to put a great example towards the society who still believes that women only can take care of a child.
What is more exciting- just after a week giving birth to her child Jacinda introduced a $5billion Families Package on July 1st that she'd planned on the floor of her friends' house in Hastings - long before her pregnancy.
The package increases the paid Leave for new parents from 18 weeks to 22 weeks. She announced the details via Facebook live, from her couch, right after she'd finished breastfeeding her baby.
She is not a superwoman who is doing her duty as a parent and as a PM but she is a simple woman who is telling everyone that the one can do anything with the love and support of others and the world needs more husband's thinking like Clarke.
You go, girl! We hail you.
