At a ceremony at Pike River on the West Coast on Friday, what appeared to be diamond ring was spotted on Ardern's left hand.

She and Gayford met at an awards event in 2012, and last year she gave birth to their first child together, daughter Neve Te Aroha Ardern Gayford, who turns one next month.

Ardern has previously denied rumours of an engagement.
