Ardern became New Zealand's youngest prime minister when she took office through a coalition deal previous year after an inconclusive election, and now became the first woman in the country's history to give birth while in office.

"Hopefully these things that in these moments now are.a novelty.one day they aren't new any more", Ardern said.

New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern carries her newborn baby Neve Te Aroha Ardern Gayford with her partner Clarke Gayford as she walks out of the Auckland Hospital in New Zealand, June 24, 2018. "She looked absolutely just stunned and very, very happy".

Laurell Ardern said she'd been poring over photos.

"We'll be joining the many parents out there who wear two hats", Ardern wrote on Instagram when she announced her pregnancy.

"You want to cherish it but it happens very quickly".

"And that it's generally accepted, not just that women can make choices, but actually that men can too", Ardern added, referring to Gayford, who was standing beside her.

She said the couple struggled for months trying to choose a name and made a decision to wait until the baby was born to figure out which one fitted best.

Ardern explained Te Aroha was a rural town in the Waikato region of New Zealand where her family is from.

"But as equally special to us were just those people who took time to send a little note, or a blanket or a set of booties", Ms Ardern said.

Mr Gayford said the birth was "all a bit of a blur for both of us", but he "won't forget the look on Jacinda's face when she arrived".

Ardern said Neve means "bright" and "radiant" as well as "snow", which was fitting because the baby was born on the Southern Hemisphere's winter solstice.

Ms Ardern gave birth to Neve on Thursday.

"Then when we were checking out of the hospital there were quite a few security guards sort of hovering around and our midwife whispered to us, "I think Jacinda is going to be here", but it wasn't confirmed at the time, no one was saying anything", Arun said.

Her partner, a 40-year-old television fishing personality, will be a stay-at-home dad while the prime minister will return to work after six weeks' maternity leave. "We're all doing really well thanks to the wonderful team at Auckland City Hospital", she said in her post.

They say everyone is in "good spirits" and that baby is "very cute".

While the day-to-day prime-ministerial duties will be handled by the polarising 73-year-old deputy PM Winston Peters, Ms Ardern will still be on call for any major decisions.
