Chelsea Clinton: Bill and Hillary Give Me “Unapologetic Pressure” to Get Pregnant

Chelsea Clinton, Hillary Clinton and Bill Clinton on September 22 2011
Chelsea Clinton tells Rachael Ray in a recent interview that her parents Bill and Hillary give her "unapologetic pressure" to have children.

Former first families: They're really just like us! Even though Chelsea Clinton's parents Bill and Hillary likely have their hands full with numerous public services and campaigns, Chelsea reveals that they still find plenty of time to bug her about one very important project: Giving them grandchildren!

The 33-year-old former first daughter sat down for a chat with Rachael Ray set to air a Friday, Oct. 11 episode of her titular show, and admitted that the former president and Secretary of State have been unrelenting in their demands for her to start a family.

"There is completely unapologetic pressure. In private and in public," she said with a laugh. "If one of my parents were sitting here, they would tell you without blinking an eye that it would make them the happiest thing on earth if I were to make them grandparents, and they would say it so effusively, and I would feel a bit of pressure."

Chelsea, who tied the knot with husband Marc Mezvinsky during a lavish ceremony in July 2010, doesn't see the rush, however. According to the activist, it's more important that both she and Mezvinsky are "in a place in our lives and in our working lives where we can provide for our children without a doubt."

But Bill and Hillary needn't wait too long. In fact, in an interview for Glamour's November issue, Chelsea explained that she and Mezvinsky hope to make 2014 "the Year of the Baby."

"And please, call my mother and tell her that," she told the magazine. "She asks about it every single day."
