Former first daughter, and a potential future one, Chelsea Clinton announced that she is pregnant on April 17, 2014. While in New York City with her mother, Hillary Clinton, she announced the big news at a speech at the Lower East Side Girls Club for a Clinton Foundation event, dedicated to helping young girls to grow and flourish.
Chelsea didn’t say if she and her husband are going to have a girl or a boy. Later on, she did head to Twitter to let everyone know that her due date is in the fall. When speaking with the audience, she told them that she would feel better if the child could grow up in a world that is full of strong, female leaders. She told them thank you for giving her the inspiration she needs to feel confident in the world her child is coming into.
Hillary Clinton, grandmother-to-be, tied the announcement in to the main focus for the day by telling the audience that she is not just excited for the growing family, but she is also excited for generations to come who aren’t going to have to deal with all of the glass ceilings that she did growing up.
Hillary told the young women that she is extremely excited about what is going on with their family. They are also excited for what they are doing to bring about hope, confidence and support to many young women across the country as they decide what they want to do with their lives. They want to make sure there aren’t any restrictions on what they want to do in life. Their goal is to make sure young women can climb as far as they can, as quickly as they can.
According to America Ferrera, a moderator at the event, you could tell just how happy Hillary was. No one around was smiling as big as she was when the announcement was made. Chelsea said that she hopes she is able to be the kind of mother to her child that her mom was to her. Both Hillary and Bill went to Twitter not long after the announcement was made to respond to comments being made about the big announcement.
The news of Chelsea and Marc expecting shouldn’t really come as a shock. Just last year, Chelsea told Glamour Magazine that she and her husband were planning on making 2014 the year of the baby. The first thing on their list was to begin their family. Clinton hasn’t done anything to keep it a secret, so we all knew it was just a matter of time.
Before the end of the year, the Clinton’s will have added a little one to their brew. For the next few months, everyone will be wondering whether they are going to add a boy or a girl to the family. Let’s see what news comes out next!
