With Jacinda Ardern from New Zealand, a prime minister arrives at the WEF in Davos, whose partner Clarke Gayford is making headlines as a full-time temporary father. Not all "First Men" are equally good in their role.
When Prime Minister of New Zealand, Jacinda Ardern (38), gave birth to a daughter in June, her partner Clarke Gayford, 41, temporarily took care of the child named Snow, while Ardern did her job .
"I have to make sure she sleeps enough," said the radio and TV presenter. Not on his daughter, but on his partner – the two are not married. Ardern brought the three-month-old child with him last September when he delivered a speech at the United Nations General Assembly. Before he reached the desk, he handed it to Gayford, who sat bearded in the audience. He did not take root during paternity leave.
Ardern's partner is TV-Fischer
It quickly happens that the partners of female heads of state are applauded for something that is taken for granted by the First Ladies.
But Clarke Gayford is not just the best way to keep his free best half. The boy is a true adventurer. In his beloved TV show "Fish of the Day", which is about to enter a new round, he goes to the most exotic places in the world to fish – with a cane and a harpoon.
Clarke Gayford is so popular in New Zealand that a columnist has provoked a storm when he compared the appearance of the First Man to that of a bachelor candidate and accused him of taking advantage of his wife's fame to stimulate his career.
As for clothes, Gayford could actually adapt better to his wife during official appearances, whose work also requires some formalism in New Zealand. A first lady would not allow these passability to go that fast.
