Greens co-leader Russel Norman is celebrating the birth of his third child - but details are under wraps.

Deeply private Norman, 47, and partner Katya Paquin welcomed a baby daughter to their family over the summer holidays. They already have two sons.

A party spokesman said the Wellington-based family were "very happy" and would not be revealing the baby's name.

Their eldest is 4 and has an Irish name, Tadhg, which Paquin found in a book.

Tadhg means story teller in Gaelic.

"They are very private and made a decision to keep their kids entirely out of [politics]," the spokesman said.

Paquin, sister of Hollywood actress Anna Paquin, was formerly the party's political director.
