New Zealand PM puts his baby to sleep while streaming

New Zealand Prime Minister Ardern was interrupted by his daughter Neve while streaming a Covid-19 situation update and had to pause to coax her to sleep.

New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern on the evening of November 8 spoke online from her home to update people on changes in measures to combat Covid-19, as the outbreak tends to cool down.

However, minutes after Prime Minister Ardern began speaking, her three-year-old daughter, Neve, burst into the room and called, “Mom.”

“It’s time to go to bed honey, let’s go back to bed. I’ll be done soon and come in with you, okay?” Ms. Ardern replied to her daughter while the screen went live.

The little girl was then brought back to bed by her grandmother.

The Prime Minister of New Zealand laughed and apologized to the people for his daughter interrupting the meeting. “Does everyone’s baby escape to sleep 3-4 times every night? Fortunately, I have a supportive mother”, she added.

A few minutes later, Neve returned to find her mother and interrupted her online meeting for the second time.

“Oh I’m sorry honey, I’ve been in a meeting for so long,” Prime Minister Ardern told her son, then asked permission to stop his speech to coax his daughter to sleep because it was too late. The Prime Minister of New Zealand hopes she will soon deliver an uninterrupted speech online.

New Zealand Social Development Minister Carmel Sepuloni at the end of August was also teased by his son holding a carrot shaped like a penis during a face-to-face interview. Video recording the incident of the New Zealand Minister then quickly spread throughout social networks, attracting tens of thousands of views.

Ms. Ardern and her partner of eight years, Clarke Gayford, welcomed baby girl Neve Te Aroha in June 2018. The Prime Minister of New Zealand is the second female leader to have a child while in office, after former Pakistani Prime Minister Benazier Bhutto in 1990.
