Jacinda Ardern and Clarke Gayford introduce NZ to Neve

June 25, 2018

Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern and partner Clarke Gayford have introduced New Zealand to their baby daughter, Neve Te Aroha Ardern Gayford.

Neve is the Anglicised spelling of Niamh, which means “bright” in Irish.

Ms Ardern gave birth at 4:45pm on Thursday. However, today was the first public appearance of the parents and baby.

Ms Ardern talked to reporters for about 5 minutes.
She took time to thank everyone at Auckland City Hospital for their kindness, warmth, and care.

As for the name, Ardern said “we chose Neve because we just liked it, and when we met her we thought she looked like she suited the name. It also means bright and radiant and snow, which seemed like a good combination for Matariki and for solstice.”
