Three-month-old baby Neve Te Aroha Ardern shared a front row seat with both her parents at the international meeting, playing on her father, New Zealand fishing show host Clarke Gayford’s lap while her mother addressed the assembly.
Little Neve was issued with her very own security pass in order to attend the prestigious event, which reveals her official title as – wait for it – ‘First Baby’.
We do not joke: Gayford posted a photo of his daughter’s security tag revealing her position on Twitter:
Ardern’s initial pregnancy news, which came just two months after she was elected into office, was met with a mixture of shock and awe.
“All I can do, really, is give people reassurance that it won’t [affect the job],” Ardern told marie claire exclusively earlier this year. “But I know I’m going to have to prove it.”
She announced Neve’s arrival on Instagram, writing, "Welcome to our village wee one. Feeling very lucky to have a healthy baby girl that arrived at 4.45pm weighing 3.31kg (7.3lb) Thank you so much for your best wishes and your kindness. We're all doing really well thanks to the wonderful team at Auckland City Hospital."
