I love celebrity baby news! Chelsea Clinton announced that she is expecting her first child with Marc Mevinsky while she was sharing the stage with her mom at a woman’s event in New York yesterday.
“Marc and I are very excited that we have our first child arriving later this year,” Chelsea said at the event. “And I certainly feel all the better whether it’s girl or a boy that she or he will grow up in a world full of so many strong, young female leaders. So thank you for inspiring me and thank you for inspiring future generations.”
She added: “I just hope I will be as good a mom to my child and hopefully children as my mom was to me.”
The due date isn’t known, but what we do know is that the baby will be coming in the fall.
Chelsea has had babies on the brain, and talked about wanting “to start a family” in an October interview with Glamour.
“So we decided we were going to make 2014 the Year of the Baby,” she said.
Bill Clinton congratulated Chelsea on Twitter. He tweeted: “Excited to add a new line to my Twitter bio…grandfather-t0-be! @hillaryclinton and I are so happy for Chelsea and Marc!”
Hillary Clinton also sent out a tweet: “My most exciting title yet! Grandmother-To-Be! @billclinton and I are thrilled that Chelsea and Marc are expecting their first child!”
Jenna Bush Hager, the daughter of former President George W. Bush and Laura Bush, also sent out a tweet congratulating Chelsea!
“Congratulations @ChelseaClinton! Welcome to the best club in the world! Mamahood is wonderful! Xx”
Do you think Chelsea will be having a girl or a boy? I think it’s going to be a girl.
