The First Baby: Clinton Edition
By Jordan Staggs
It’s official! Chelsea Clinton and husband Marc Mezinsky are expecting their first child. The surprise announcement was made last week, at the Lower Eastside Girls Club in New York City—an event she was hosting with her mother, former US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. Chelsea stated, "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.”
According to the Washington Post, Clinton added, "I just hope I will be as good a mom to my child and hopefully children as my mom was to me.”
The Post also reported that Hillary was “really excited” to learn the news of her future grandchild.
After the big announcement, the Clinton Family took to Twitter to make comments:
And the excitement didn’t stop there. Recent mother and fellow former president’s daughter, Jenna Bush Hager tweeted: “Congratulations @ChelseaClinton! Welcome to the best club in the world. Mamahood is wonderful.xx”
The news was not entirely unexpected though. Last year, in an interview with Glamour magazine, Clinton said that she and her husband planned for 2014 to be “the year of the baby.”
But just because a baby is on the way, don’t expect her to slow down too much. Clinton currently serves as vice chair of the Bill, Hillary & Chelsea Clinton Foundation, where she helps direct the humanitarian and philanthropic efforts of the organization around the world. She also serves as a special correspondent for NBC News.

Chelsea Clinton: Three years later
By: Jordan Staggs
In just a few short weeks, Chelsea Clinton and husband, Marc Mezvinsky, will be celebrating their third wedding anniversary. Since that elegant and memorable July 31st day, the two have managed to stay out of the public eye, for the most part, when it comes to their marriage. But unfortunately, even a quiet couple such as these two, haven’t been able to keep out of the divorce rumor mill. The couple has made it clear, though, that they are in no way on the verge of divorce. In fact, in March of this year, the two purchased a luxurious $10.5 million dollar New York apartment.
So are kids soon to be on the way for Clinton and Mezvinsky? According to US magazine, Clinton shares that her mother, Hillary stated that “[parenthood] was the greatest thing that ever happened to her. And as the subject of such an amazing compliment, I can't do anything but be grateful and smile and say that I'm confident that I will feel the same way when I am so blessed. It's certainly something that Marc and I talk a lot about."
As of now, no pregnancy has been announced, but there is talk of adoption. The humanitarian duo are planning on adopting a child from Africa.
Being the daughter of two incredibly influential political figures, it is no wonder that Clinton has thought about one day running for public office. She expressed to the Today show, back in April, “If at some point that weren't true and I thought I could make a meaningful and measurably greater impact, I'd have to ask and answer that question.”
In most recent news, Clinton discusses her gratitude for organizations, such as Planned Parenthood, not being attainable when her grandmother became unintentionally pregnant. Though she is not directly stating that she is against abortion, or anti-pro-choice, she is thankful that because of their lack of existence, she is the daughter to her father, Bill Clinton.
Chelsea Clinton has made quite a splash in the influential pool. She is working towards her PhD, a part of Clinton Global initiative, co-founder of Of Many Institute for Multifaith Leader at NYU, co-chair person for Clinton Foundation, serves on the board of the School of American Ballet, and is a special correspondent for “Making a Difference” on NBC.
Who’s to tell what Clinton has in store for the future, but if it is anything like the path she’s traveled so far, it will be quite spectacular.

The News Breaks
Chelsea Clinton to be married
By Doug Wead
Chelsea Clinton, daughter of President Bill Clinton and Hillary Clinton, the sitting secretary of state, is engaged to be married. According to an e-mail that she and longtime boyfriend, Marc Mezvinsky, sent to friends this afternoon, the wedding will take place next summer. A spokesman for the Clinton family has confirmed it.
The lucky man
Marc Mezvinsky will be the groom
Her boyfriend, Marc Mezvinsky, is the son of Democratic congressman Ed Mezvinsky and Marjorie Margolies-Mezvinsky. Both served in the United States congress representing Iowa and Pennsylvania respectively. Marjorie was a force to be reckoned with in Pennsylvania politics, running as the Democrat candidate for Lt. Governor in 1998 until her husband’s financial problems forced her to withdraw. Ed Mezvinsky reportedly served a prison sentence for fraud but was released in April, 2008.
They met in Washington DC
By Doug Wead
Chelsea and Marc met in Washington, DC and both attended Stanford University. Several major news agencies have staked out the couple off and on for years. During President Clinton’s ongoing Monica Lewinsky scandal one major television network was going to break a story about the couple’s romance but backed off out of respect for their privacy. At the time I was working on the book, All the Presidents’ Children, and a person representing himself as an associate producer offered me his notes. I declined.
Chelsea and Marc live in New York where she attends school and he works for Goldman Sachs.

Chelsea, the so-called "Garbo of presidential children", surprised reporters last year when she campaigned openly and publicly for her mother’s presidential campaign. Her new public persona inspired “Chelsea for president” campaign buttons. She is currently attending Columbia University.
