Bill and Hill will be grandparents! Chelsea Clinton, the former first child, has announced she is pregnant with her first child.
Clinton made the announcement today while at an event with her mother Hillary for the Clinton Foundation. “I just want to thank all of you for being such an inspiration to us and to me in particular,” she said to the participants of the “No Ceilings: The Full Participation” project. “Marc and I are very excited that we have our first child arriving later this year.” Clinton and Marc Mezvinsky married in 2010. “And I certainly feel all the better, whether it’s a girl or a boy, that she or he will grow up in a world with so many strong, young female leaders.”
Clinton’s very famous parents have joked in the past about their desperate desire for grandchildren. It’s possible now that Chelsea can bring this baby on the campaign trail when and if Hillary runs in 2016. Try to deny the power of a baby to win votes!
Clinton tweeted to confirm the news:
Marc and I are so thrilled to be expecting our first child in the fall! Thank you for all of the kind words!
