Aw, this is such nice news! Chelsea Clinton is expecting her first child! Considering Chelsea is the only child of Bill and Hillary Clinton, this will be their first grandchild. Chelsea has been pretty open about how much her parents have been pressuring her to get pregnant too, so I would imagine Bubba and Hills are beyond thrilled. Chelsea married Marc Mezinsky in 2010, and although there were rumors about some marriage problems a few years ago, I haven’t heard anything bad about them in a while.
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.”
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.
I’ve read some stuff about Chelsea and I’ve even read a few of her interviews over the past few years, and I have to say… I do like her. I’m not sure she should run for office right at this moment, but she’s a pretty cool woman and an interesting blend of her parents. People say that Chelsea is flirtatious and good with people like her dad, and that she’s a focused workhorse Type-A like her mom. Anyway, I’m sure this baby will be doted upon on an epic level. Someone check on Bubba, I’m sure he’s crying.
