Netizens React to New Zealand PM Jacinda Ardern Announcing Her Longed-For Wedding Date

New Zealand Prime Minister and Labour Party leader Jacinda Ardern, who won parliamentary elections for a second time in 2020, has sparked “Jacindamania” due to her popularity among New Zealanders and many others throughout the world.

The 40-year-old head of New Zealand’s government, Jacinda Ardern, on Wednesday revealed the date of her much-awaited wedding to her fiancée, Clarke Gayford. “We have finally got a date. Finally”, Ardern noted, speaking on NZ radio, adding that the event is scheduled for the forthcoming summer, without revealing the precise date.

“When I say we’ve got a date, that doesn’t mean we’ve told anyone yet. I feel like we should probably put some invites out”, she said.

At the end of January 2018, Ardern announced that she was pregnant and expecting a baby in June. On 21 June 2018, Ardern and Gayford had a daughter named Neve Te Aroha. Ardern and Gayford became engaged on 28 April 2019.

Netizens congratulated Ardern on the much-anticipated event.

Some could not resist the chance to make a caustic comment. 

Jacinda Ardern stood in the 2017 general election as a candidate from the Labour Party, and became the nation’s prime minister at 37, the youngest female head of government in the world at the time. Her party secured a majority in the 2020 elections and Ardern became prime minister for a second term. The progressive politician has earned adoration for her courageous initiatives, despite facing serious challenges including a global pandemic and terrorist attacks in 2019.
