New Zealand PM Ardern, fiance plan summer wedding

Sydney, Australia, May 5 (EFE).- New Zealand’s Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern and her fiance Clarke Gayford are planning a summer wedding, she accounced Wednesday.

The couple got engaged over the Easter holidays in 2019 and have a daughter, Neve, who turns three next month.

Ardern told Coast FM that they have “finally got a date” for the wedding.

“That doesn’t mean we’ve told anyone yet, so I feel like we should probably put some invites out,” Ardern said in the interview, during which she did not reveal a date.

The Labor chief, whose leadership on social policies and displays of empathy are admired around the world, also joked that she feels “a bit too old to have a bridal party,” adding that it was unlikely be a traditional wedding.

Ardern, 40, and Gayford, a 44-year-old TV fishing show host, met briefly during an awards ceremony in 2012 and reconnected the following year when he contacted his local MP, who at the time was Ardern, to discuss privacy concerns over a security amendment bill.

The Labor leader was the second world leader to give birth during her tenure after the late Pakistani prime minister Benazir Bhuto. EFE
