Welp, she called it! Chelsea Clinton is pregnant and expecting her first child with husband Marc Mezvinsky. The daughter of former President Bill Clinton and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton announced the news during the Girls: A No Ceilings Conversation event in NYC on Thursday, April. 17.
"One more thing to say very quickly," the 34-year-old addressed the crowd. "Mark and I are very excited that we have our first child arriving later this year. I certainly feel all the better whether it's a girl or a boy that they'll grow up in a world with so many strong female leaders…"
"I just hope that I'll be as good to my child as my mom was to me," she added. As mom Hillary replied: "I'm expecting a grand child which I'm very excited about. We're very excited about what's happening in our family but we're also very excited about what we're doing."
Dad Bill couldn't help but gush himself following the event. "Excited to add a new line to my Twitter bio…grandfather-to-be!" he tweeted. "@hillaryclinton and I are so happy for Chelsea and Marc!" Chelsea added on Facebook: "Marc and I are so thrilled to be expecting our first child in the fall! Thank you for all of the kind words!"
The former first daughter has clearly had babies on the brain, as she previously revealed she planned to try for baby No. 1 this year last October. "We sat down and said, 'Here's what we want to do.' The first thing on the list was simple: We want, God willing, to start a family," she said in Glamour's November 2013 issue. "So we decided we were going to make 2014 the Year of the Baby."
No one, of course, was more ecstatic about a possible pregnancy than the future grandparents. "And please," Chelsea added, "call my mother and tell her that. She asks us about it every single day."
Clinton and investment banker Mezvinsky tied the knot in a lavish ceremony in Rhinebeck, N.Y., back in July 2010. The happy baby news comes just one day after Clinton, who serves as the Vice Chair of The Clinton Foundation, hinted that she's open to running for political office one day.
