Preggers PM

   Thread Started January 18 at 9:08PM

Our new(ish) Prime Minister, Jacinda Ardern has just announced that she is pregnant!

Anyone ever heard of a pregnant PM before. NZ is good at being the first in stuff e.g. first to give women the vote.

Baby is due in June.

A pregnant PM? That's nothing!

Our PM has had a cow, on more than one occasion!


(P.S. Good for Jacinda. Want to swap?)

Well, neither of our female PMs got pregnant whilst in office, but we did have a pregnant PM's wife once.

Indhira Ghandi might have been pregnant whilst in office.

Well we don't have a PM, and our president is too darn old to even consider having a little one...but a little lady or a little man is always welcome anywhere...LOL

I believe Benazir Bhutto gave birth while PM of Pakistan. Of course she was later assassinated, so let's hope that's not a bad omen.

Jacinda Ardern will take 6 weeks maternity leave, handing over the reins to her deputy. Since Parliament makes no real provision for maternity leave, she will continue receiving her full salary. She has announced that she will therefore donate a corresponding proportion of her pay to Plunket, a longstanding organisation here for the benefit of infants and the welfare of new mothers.

   

A book by our Michael Hogan

Sebastian and the Invisible Island tells the tale of a young boy stranded on a mysterious island where his only hope for rescue lies in feuding extraterrestrials who also yearn for home.

“This is a great book to enjoy between parent and preteens or younger. It drew us with its intriguing tropical island setting, heroics and strange goings on.” -Sally

“Excellent reading material for the age group. A breath of fresh air for young people in an area that is growing darker.” –Robert

Available in Kindle ($2.99) and paperback ($9.97).
