New Zealand's Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern has given birth to her first child, a girl weighing 3.31kg (7.3lb).
 
This makes her only the second elected leader in modern history to give birth while in office.
 
Ardern was admitted to a hospital in the city of Auckland early this morning, four days after her due date.
 
The 37-year-old will take six weeks of maternity leave, and has now passed on her duties to Deputy Prime Minister Winston Peters.
 
However, she said she would remain in charge by continuing to read cabinet papers during her time away.
 
She broke the news of the birth on social media, saying she felt very lucky and thanking the staff at the hospital in Auckland.
 
In a statement, she also said: "I'm sure we're going through all of the emotions new parents go through, but at the same time feeling so grateful for all the kindness and best wishes from so many people. Thank you."
