Serbia’s first female and gay Prime Minister Ana Brnabic and her partner welcomed a baby boy on Wednesday, Feb. 20.

 Brnabic, 43, was appointed to office in June 2017, according to the BBC. Gay marriage is illegal in Serbia and LGBT people are often harassed and attacked, so her appointment made history for the community. Now she’s making history again.

"Ana 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," the AFP agency quoted her office as saying. 

Same-sex couples aren’t allowed to adopt in Serbia, even though single people can adopt. So Brnabic partner Milica Djurdjic had to conceive through artificial insemination.
