New Zealand's Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern has given birth to her first child, a girl weighing 3.31kg (7.3lb). This makes her only the second elected leader in modern history to give birth while in office.

The 37-year-old will take six weeks of maternity leave, and has now passed on her duties to Deputy Prime Minister Winston Peters.

However, she said she would remain in charge by continuing to read cabinet papers during her time away.

In 1990, Benazir Bhutto gave birth to a daughter while serving as Pakistan's prime minister, a first for an elected world leader. Incidentally, Ms Ardern's baby was born on what would have been Ms Bhutto's birthday.

Congratulations Madam Prime Minister.

Meanwhile the American President announced she..... wait... what? Oh... Americans will never have a female leader?

Bill Clinton was the closest thing to female they will ever get?

So does she have to put the baby in her pouch, or is that just Australia?
