Chelsea Clinton is pregnant with her first child with husband Marc Mezvinksy.
The 34-year-old daughter of former president Bill Clinton and rumored 2016 hopeful Hillary Clinton made the announcement on Thursday (April 17) while speaking at an even for No Ceilings: The Full Participation Project.
“Marc and I are very excited that we have our first child arriving later this year,” she told the room, according to People. “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.”
Back in November, Chelsea told Glamour that she and her husband of three years were trying to make 2014 the “year of the baby,” hinting that her mother had been hoping to become a grandmother for awhile.
“We sat down and said, ’Here’s what we want to do.’ The first thing on the list was simple: We want, God willing, to start a family. So we decided we were going to make 2014 the Year of the Baby,” she said. “And please call my mother and tell her that. She asks us about it every single day… I was ready to answer that calling and be the person my grandmother had always known I was.”
