Prime Minister and mother Jacinda Ardern has had what she calls "a mixed bag" Mothers' Day experience.
Ardern will be spending the next seven days in home isolation after discovering on Sunday morning that partner Clarke Gayford has tested positive for Covid-19.
A photo of a Mothers Day card from daughter Neve that Ardern has posted to Facebook also includes an update on their household Covid situation.
"Happy Mother’s Day everyone! It’s not even midday and already I’d say ours has been a mixed bag. Neve was so excited that it was Mother’s Day she got up nice and early to share this lovely card!" writes the Prime Minister.
“The downside is Clarke woke up feeling a bit average and has tested positive for COVID, so we have 7 days of family time ahead of us!” says Ardern.

"I'm fine and so is Neve. I’ll be working from home so anyone who watches question time, or is attending my Business NZ speech on Wednesday, you’ll still see me remotely!
"Otherwise, a happy Mother’s Day to everyone who plays mum in anyone's life. You are as magical as hot lava is to a three year old!"
