Belgrade: Serbian Prime Minister Ana Brnabicâs partner gave a birth to a baby boy on Wednesday, her office said, heralding it as a historic event although the conservative country does not legally recognise same-sex marriages or partnerships.
âAna Brnabic is one of the first Prime Ministers whose partner has given birth while in office... and the first in the world in a same-sex couple,â her media office said in a statement.
A statement said the birth mother, Milica Djurdjic, and baby, reportedly a boy named Igor, were âdoing fineâ.
âThe delivery went well and both the mother and baby are doing fine,â it added.
Ms Brnabic, 43, became one of the few openly gay government leaders in the world when she came to power in June 2017. But she has not been a vocal advocate of LGBT issues in a country where homophobia is widespread.
Ms Djurdjic, who works as a doctor, became pregnant though artificial insemination. She and Ms Brnabic met at a gay bar in the capital, Belgrade.
