Delighted Clinton, 34, made the announcement via Twitter in the early hours of Saturday, Sept. 27, revealing she had given birth to her first child and named her Charlotte.

The couple, who were last seen on Wednesday, Sept. 24 at the annual Clinton Global Initiative event in New York City, had kept the gender of their child a mystery until the birth. "There are so few mysteries in life — any answer is a happy one," Clinton said recently. "So my husband and I decided that we would enjoy this mystery for the nine-plus months that we're granted, and we are eager to find out what God will have given us."

Little Charlotte is the first grandchild of Bill and Hilary Clinton, both of whom retweeted their daughter's happy announcement as soon as it was made, and made their own joint statement.

"We are blessed, grateful, and so happy to be the grandparents of a beautiful girl," the Clintons told Us in a statement. "We are thrilled to be with our daughter and her husband as they welcome their daughter into the world. Chelsea is well and glowing. Marc is bursting with pride. Charlotte's life is off to a good start."

Talking before Charlotte's birth, the former First Daughter revealed she felt it was a good time to be bringing a baby into the world.

"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," she said. "I just hope that I will be as good a mom to my child and hopefully children as my mom was to me."
