New Zealand Speaker feeds lawmaker’s baby in Parliament

NEW ZEALAND – A baby joined New Zealand’s Parliament Wednesday.

Speaker Trevor Mallard posted pictures of himself with lawmaker Tamati Coffey’s baby.

“Normally the Speaker’s chair is only used by Presiding Officers but today a VIP took the chair with me. Congratulations @tamaticoffey and Tim on the newest member of your family,” Trevor Mallard captioned his post.

Tamati Coffey attended a debate in the Parliament with his baby for the first time after returning from paternity leave, according to the BBC.

No one seemed to mind.
