Mr Perrottet will be back to work on Monday, April 4, but said he will return earlier if needed.
“Given the current flood emergency I will continue to receive briefings on the response and recovery work and remain ready to return to official duties immediately should the need arise,” Mr Perrottet said.
Mr Perottet announced the birth of the “beautiful” baby girl last night.
Her name is Celeste Grace Perrottet.
“Helen and I are absolutely thrilled to welcome our beautiful baby girl, Celeste Grace Perrottet, born last night,” the premier wrote on Facebook.
“Both Mum and baby are doing well.
“She’s looking forward to being kissed and cuddled, fought over and cherished by her big brother and sisters.”
Mr Perrottet has six other children: Charlotte, Amelia, Annabelle, William, Harriet and Beatrice.
