New Zealand PM Jacinda Ardern plans a summer wedding

New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern plans to marry in the summer, but local media reported Wednesday that he did not reveal a date.

Ardern said Coast radio She and her partner television host Clark Gayford had “last dated” for the wedding, the New Zealand Herald said in a report.

“That doesn’t mean we haven’t told anyone yet, so I think we should probably give out an invitation,” Ardern said in the report.

Ardern, 40, was engaged to 44-year-old Gayford during the Easter holiday season of 2019 and has a two-year-old daughter.

The wedding, scheduled for the summer in the southern hemisphere from December to February, may not be celebrated in the traditional way because Ardern admitted that he was “too old to have a bridal party,” media reports quoted her.

A spokesman for the Prime Minister’s Office told Reuters that “there is nothing more to add to what was reported this morning.”

Ardern became New Zealand’s youngest Prime Minister when he took office in 2017 and is one of the few leaders elected to take office while pregnant.

She won the center-left Labor Party’s biggest election victory in half a century in a decisive response from the government to regain power in October and curb the COVID-19 outbreak.
