Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern has been forced to once again deny claims her partner Clarke Gayford let slip the sex of their baby - this time after an interview with Radio New Zealand.

Ms Ardern defended the claims on Sunday, saying that after listening to the interview it doesn't sound like he revealed the gender at all.

In the interview, Mr Gayford is asked about the upcoming addition to their family - a moment he said he was really excited for.

"The reality is there, you know, that we're going to have a child," he told RNZ, before appearing to go on to describe the infant as a "her".

Ms Ardern told media that no matter how she responds to the claims, she is damned.

"People will then assume [what the baby's sex is] from my defensiveness or my lack of defensiveness," she said.

The couple have confirmed they know the sex, but are keeping it secret as it's one of the few things that can remain out of the public's eye.

The Ardern-Gayford baby is due June 17, and the Prime Minister has declared she will work up until her due date.

Earlier this year Gayford may of let slip the gender of the baby on More FM.
