Chelsea Clinton announces pregnancy

By Phyllis Stark. CREATED Apr 18, 2014

Chelsea Clinton, 34, and her husband of four years, Marc Mezvinsky, are expecting their first child. 

The daughter of politicians Bill and Hillary Clinton who grew up in the White House in front of America's eyes made the announcement during an appearance with her mother for the Clinton Foundation's "No Ceilings: The Full Participation" project.
 
Near the end of the event, Chelsea said, “I have one more thing to say very quickly. I just want to thank all of you for being such an inspiration to us and to me in particular. Marc and I are very excited that we have our first child arriving later this year. And I certainly feel all the better, whether it's a girl or a boy, that she or he will grow up in a world with so many strong, young female leaders," she said, according to E! News.
 
She also shared the news on Facebook and Twitter, writing, "Marc and I are so thrilled to be expecting our first child in the fall! Thank you for all of the kind words!"
 
“During an interview with Glamour magazine for their November 2013 issue, Clinton revealed that the passing of her grandmother pushed her and her hubby to start a family of their own,” according to E!. In that interview, she predicted 2014 would be “the year of the baby,” adding, “and please, call my mother and tell her that. She asks us about it every single day."
 
Both parents are very excited, judging by their tweets.
