Bill and Hillary Clinton are going to be grandparents. Chelsea Clinton announced Thursday that she is pregnant with her first child with husband Marc Mezvinsky. NBC News broke the news on Twitter:
JUST IN: Chelsea Clinton announces she is pregnant with her first child
— NBC Nightly News (@nbcnightlynews) April 17, 2014
The 34-year-old Clinton made the announcement during a “No Ceilings” event with her mother, saying, “I just hope that I will be as good a mom to my child and hopefully children as my mom was to me.”
UPDATE (4:45pm ET): CNN aired video of Clinton’s announcement shortly after she made it Thursday afternoon. “I certainly feel all the better, whether it’s a girl or a boy, that she or he will grow up in a world of so many strong, young female leaders,” she told the crowd in attendance at the event.
According to CNN White House correspondent Brianna Keilar’s sources, the fact that Hillary Clinton will become a grandmother later this year will not stop her from running for president in 2016.
