马刺vs篮网 www.gdhso.club New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern and her partner Clarke Gayford have revealed the name of their baby girl, who was born Thursday.
Ardern is the first world leader in nearly 30 years to have a child while in office.
Emerging from Auckland City Hospital with their sleeping baby Sunday morning local time (Saturday evening ET), Ardern and Gayford told waiting media they had named her Neve Te Aroha Ardern Gayford.
當地時間周日早上(美國東部時間周六晚上)，阿德恩和蓋福德帶著熟睡中的嬰兒從奧克蘭市醫院出來，他們對等待的媒體宣布，為女兒取名為妮薇·蒂阿洛哈·阿德恩·蓋福德( Neve Te Aroha Ardern Gayford)。
“Neve” (pronounced like leave) means radiant, light or snow and “Te Aroha” (TAY AH-row-ha) means love and is also the name of the mountain and town near where Ardern lived as a child.
The baby will be known as Neve Gayford for short.
Ardern said like many parents she and Gayford had struggled to settle on a name before the birth and had a shortlist prepared.
“We wanted to wait until the baby arrived to really see which one felt like it worked, we chose Neve because we just liked it and when we met her we thought she looked she suited the name,” the Prime Minister said.
However the couple chose “Te Aroha” quite quickly, as it reflected the love their baby had been shown before her birth, she said.
“All of the names that were gifted along the way, I thought how do I reflect the generosity, particularly from all the iwi (Maori tribes) who gifted us names and Te Aroha seemed to me to be a way we could show that love and generosity,” Ardern explained.
“It’s also the place where all my family are from as well as a place name and I grew up under that mountain.”
Ardern is taking six weeks parental leave before Gayford — who hosts a fishing documentary series — takes on the role of stay-at-home dad.
“So I hope for little girls and boys that there’s a future where they can make choices about how they raise their family and what kind of career they have, that are just based on what they want and what makes them happy,” she said.
