It's go time! Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern has gone into labour with her soon-to-be first child.
The Prime Minister's Office has confirmed Ardern has arrived at Auckland City Hospital, with her partner Clarke Gayford, to have their baby.
Up until now, Jacinda had still been active in the community and carrying out her role as PM.
This means Deputy Prime Minister Winston Peters is now Acting Prime Minister.
There will be no further formal anouncements from the Prime Minister's office until Jacinda Ardern and Clarke Gayford announce the birth of their baby.
You can do this Jacinda!
