Over the long weekend New Zealand celebrated the Queen's Birthday ... and unfortunately, it's the last public holiday we get until October!

Stace and Producer Scott aka MU (Magical Unicorn) caught up with Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern - who is due to give birth in the next couple of weeks - and suggested Kiwis should get a new public holiday to celebrate the arrival of her little one.

It will be the "first baby" of the nation after all.

"It'd be very close to Queen's Birthday though, wouldn't it?" Jacinda replied when asked about a potential 'First Baby Day'.

"You can just put it in August if you like," MU replied, stating that even the Queen's real birthday is actually in April.

We're not sure Stace and MU managed to convince the PM, but our fingers are crossed!

Jacinda also promised Stacey that she will rest before giving birth and that she will catch up with the crew again in a fortnight - even if she's in the middle of labour.

"If we time it between contractions we'll be fine," she said.
