Junta president Susana Diaz is three-months-pregnant with her first child and would be the first regional president to be a mother during her tenure.

The 40-year-old announced today that she is expecting to give birth to a baby boy two months after the municipal elections in mid-July.

Sources claim that she plans to keep turn her pregnancy into an issue that will affect only her ‘most intimate sphere’.

Although she has wanted to be a mother for a while it will change nothing, as she does not intend to let the pregnancy affect her political agenda or plans.
