Baby Neve joined her mother, Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern, on a secret celebrity encounter last year, as the pair met up with pop superstar Pink backstage ahead of her Auckland show.

The chart-topping singer brought her Beautiful Trauma tour to New Zealand last September, performing a record-breaking six-night run at Auckland's Spark Arena. More than 73,000 fans attended the shows - including the PM.

At the time, Pink revealed she had met Ardern, telling her fans about the encounter when she was live on stage, labelling the Kiwi "awesome".

Pink told her fans they were lucky to have a leader like Jacinda.

According to Pink's record label Sony Music, Ardern asked if would be possible to meet the singer before the rendezvous was set up.

Ardern was joined by her partner Clarke Gayford and baby Neve, as they sat down for an informal chat with Pink, her husband Carey Hart and their two children - 1-year-old Jameson and 7-year-old Willow.

Photos from the rendezvous have only just been released, revealing a child-friendly set-up backstage, full of playdough and colourful paints.

Ardern has not officially remarked on the encounter but is understood to be a big fan of the singer.
