Jacinda Ardern’s fiancé shows off the incredibly creepy ‘life-like’ doll a fan made for their young daughter – and it has a VERY appropriate name
The fiancé of 新西兰‘s prime minister has showed off the bizarre life-like doll a fan sent to their young daughter.
Clarke Gayford, 44, revealed the creepy replica of his fiancé 杰辛达·阿登（Jacinda Ardern） to his 52,000 Instagram followers on Monday.
‘We get given all sorts of wonderful hand-made arts and crafts and when I say we, I mean Neve,’ he says while nonchalantly brushing the doll’s hair.
‘There’s some real talent in this country, some incredible talent, and she’s a very lucky three-year-old.

‘Some of the things that make their way into our home and into our three-year-old’s heart, include this wonderful dolly, which Neve has even given a name.’
Mr Gayford then turns the toy around to reveal the doll’s face has been painted eerily similar to that of New Zealand’s much-loved leader.
‘She calls this dolly “Creepy Mummy,”‘ 他宣布.
‘Creepy Mummy would just like to say “hang in there, you got this, even though it’s Monday.”‘
Instagram users were quick to share their thoughts on the doll in the comments.

ñearly two million Kiwis in Auckland will remain under level four lockdown for another two weeks.
The rest of New Zealand south of Auckland will move to level three lockdown restrictions from 11.59pm Tuesday and those conditions will remain in place for at least a week.
Northland will remain in level four but will move to level three later this week if wastewater tests come back Covid-free.
New Zealand had been largely virus-free for months, barring a small number of cases in February, until an outbreak of the Indian delta variant imported from Australia prompted Ardern to order a snap nationwide lockdown on August 17.
For the rest of New Zealand, cafes, restaurants and takeaways can reopen but only for contactless pick-up, delivery or drive through.

The wearing of masks remain mandatory on public transport, in taxis and other ride share vehicles, supermarkets, pharmacies and takeaway stores and when visiting healthcare facilities.
全部 53 of Monday’s cases were recorded in Auckland after 85 cases were announced 24 hours earlier.
‘To move Auckland down a level we need to be confident we don’t have Delta in the community,’ Ms Ardern said.
She produced modelling that revealed that the country would have recorded at least 550 cases on Monday had level four restrictions not been implemented.
There are now 562 cases linked to the Delta outbreak, 13 days after New Zealand recorded its first Covid-19 case in over six months.
The couple went on to have their daughter Neve Te Aroha Ardern Gayford in 2018 and were engaged at Easter the following year

They started to spend time together after Clarke contacted Ms Ardern about a controversial Government Communications Security Bureau bill.

Ms Ardern announced in March she would finally start planning their big day more than two years after her fiancé popped the question.
‘We will get there. A lot has been going on. It’s fair to say the pandemic really got in the way of not just our plans, but a lot of people’s plans,’ 她说.
