Chelsea Clinton has announced that she is pregnant!
The 34-year-old daughter of former President Bill Clinton is expecting her first child with husband Marc Mezvinsky. She made the announcement today.
Clinton revealed her happy news in New York this afternoon at the Clinton Foundation’s No Ceilings: The Full Participation Project, which aims to empower young women.
She told the crowd, “Marc and I are very excited that we have our first child arriving later this year.”
The audience began cheering, before Chelsea stated, “I certainly feel all the better whether it’s a girl or a boy that she or he will grow up in world filled with so many strong, young female leaders… I just hope that I will be as good a mom to my child and hopefully children as my mom was to me.”
Chelsea Clinton also shared her news on Twitter and soon received many congratulatory tweets.
Jenna Bush Hager, a fellow former first daughter and new mother herself, tweeted her congratulations.
Chelsea Clinton told Glamour magazine last year that her mother was pressuring her to have childre.
She said, “2014 is the year of the baby. Call my mother and tell her that. She asks [Marc and I] about it every single day.”
Hillary has made no secret of her desire to be a grandmother.
In the March 2011 issue of Harper’s Bazaar, she admitted that she’d probably be an “unbearable” grandmother, but she’d love Chelsea to have children.
She stated, “Well, no pressure, because I don’t want to be one of those kinds of mothers. But obviously, someday, I’d love it.”
Chelsea and Marc tied the knot in August of 2010.
