Congratulations to Chelsea Clinton who announced her pregnancy today! The 34-year-old was speaking at an event in New York City for the Clinton Foundation’s No Ceilings: The Full Participation Project when she addressed her audience.
She said, “Marc 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 she or he will grow up in world filled with so many strong female leaders.”
Chelsea and her husband Marc Mezvinsky married in 2010.
She later tweeted: “Marc and I are so thrilled to be expecting our first child in the fall! Thank you for all of the kind words!
Bill Clinton followed up with writing, “Excited to add a new line to my Twitter bio … grandfather-to-be! Hillary and I are so happy for Chelsea and Marc.”
And Hillary added, “My most exciting title yet: Grandmother-To-Be!”
According to People – the famous daughter had told Rachael Ray, “There is completely unapologetic pressure. In private and in public. 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.”
Marjorie Margolies – Mezvinsky’s mother – stated, “We’re just thrilled.”
“There are 18 grandchildren on this side of the family so he or she is going to have a lot of cousins and they’ll be very pleased,” she shared.
She also said that Marc broke the news to her ‘like any normal, carbon-based homo sapien’ does it. He called me and said, ‘Chelsea’s pregnant.’”
Margolies is running for her old congressional seat in Pennsylvania’s 13th district.
