Chelsea Clinton expecting first child this fall

Hillary Clinton hopes "maybe our grandchild will not have to be worried about some of the things that young women and young men are worried about today"

For the Clintons, 2014 is the year of the baby.

Chelsea Clinton, the 34-year-old daughter of former President Bill Clinton and ex-Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton, announced Thursday that she and her husband, Marc Mezvinsky, are expecting their first child this fall.

There has been wide speculation about a future baby in the Clinton family. Chelsea Clinton said in an interview with Glamour magazine last year that she and her husband were hoping to start a family soon, calling 2014 "the year of the baby."

"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 female leaders," Clinton said in New York, joined by her mother at a Clinton Foundation event on empowering women.

"I just hope I will be as good a mom to my child and hopefully children as my mom was to me," she said.

The former first lady, secretary of state and New York senator, who is considering another presidential campaign in 2016, said she was "really excited" about becoming a grandmother.

"It makes this work even more important because we've made a lot of progress," Clinton said. "I want to see us keep moving and certainly for future generations as well so that maybe our grandchild will not have to be worried about some of the things that young women and young men are worried about today."

She later added on Twitter: "My most exciting title yet: Grandmother-To-Be!"

The former president also expressed jubilation about the news on Twitter: "Excited to add a new line to my Twitter bio...grandfather-to-be! @HillaryClinton and I are so happy for Chelsea and Marc!"

Preparations for the new baby will coincide with Hillary Clinton's deliberations over another campaign for the White House. Mrs. Clinton is set to release a book about her time at the State Department in June, followed by a book tour, and Democrats hope she will be a top surrogate for their candidates in the 2014 midterm elections.

The former secretary of state is expected to announce her decision later this year and polls show her as the leading contender for the Democratic Party's nomination if she runs. If Clinton seeks the White House, her campaign would potentially coincide with her grandchild's first two years.

After growing up in the public eye as a teenager in the White House, Chelsea Clinton graduated from Stanford University and Columbia University's Mailman School of Public Health and worked in New York for a hedge fund and a management consulting firm.

She and Marc Mezvinsky, the son of two former members of Congress, were married in Rhinebeck, N.Y., in July 2010, and the former first daughter has balanced a number of work and interests, pursuing a doctorate from Oxford University, where her father was a Rhodes Scholar, while taking a leading role in her family's foundation.

She serves as vice chair of the family foundation, which was renamed the Bill, Hillary & Chelsea Clinton Foundation, and helps direct the organization's humanitarian and philanthropic efforts around the globe. She also serves as a special correspondent for NBC News.

She has avoided commenting on her mother's potential presidential campaign except to say that she'll support her in whatever she does. But she would be a strong voice for her mother among young voters if the former secretary of state decides to seek the presidency.

Expected that she would take the opportunity to make this a political statement.

And everything with her family tributes to the lust of the NOW Generation. Whats in it for us NOW.

When our children were born we prayed over them in the crib and asked the Gracious Lord to guide us as parents, guide them as children, to be good and honorable, to obey the commands of the Lord, and He has answered our prayers.

So whats next for this grand child of Hillary, a fast lane to teach it that its ok to murder the unborn, steal from others in the name of taxation and distribution of their wealth while in fact they themselves hoard millions as they speak against the rich. Hypocrites is too lame a word for them.

Everyone will be making a fuss at this news, I and many others however remember history, and the sayings of Christ to the arrogant and sleazy leaders of His time. "You go at all lengths to make a convert to yourselves and then you make them TWICE the demon you are!" Go ahead and party at this news, I instead will start to prepare for my grandchildren to survive this offspring's future political manipulations. It will learn quickly of Bills and Hilary's secrete to sway the public and how to lie, steal and justify murders, and then it will have more time to fine tune what Bill and Hillary taught them. History has shown this over and over again. I will also pray the the kids nanny will be a strong believer in Christ that will combat the effects of its grand parents.

The Clintons did a great job rearing their daughter. Chelsea is an outstanding young woman. God save me from judgemental so called christians like you.

Agree.

bondgirlM

Agreed Bill taught Chelsea exactly what kind of a man not to marry and have children with. Hillary taught Chelsea just how you "stand by your man" even when you say you would never be the Tammy Wynette type. GREAT role models and teachers!

Truth2u

You can say what every you wish about me. Anyone who supports the Clinton's are like the Clinton's. 2000 years ago you people would have been the one crying out "Crucify Him!", yet many piously pretend to be religious while calling good evil and evil good, such as abortion, sodomy, adultery etc.

Chelsea is as slippery as Hillary, using her baby to spring board her political aspirations as Hillary, who was kicked off the Watergate investigation for her deception, tried to use that as her springboard.

Chelsea supports murderer just like her parents, making her an accessory. Those who support the slicing, dicing and chemically burning of babies are cowards and are pathetic. Only those who make excuses because they are equally disgusting would say the Clinton's are good people. How pathetic that educated people can't see immorality for what it is. Only the lowest form of society would say they think a person who supports and defends the right to MURDER is a good person.

Instead of replying to my posts maybe you should read the Bible and start making a defense for your judgement day when you stand before millions and millions of aborted babies and have to give and account as to why you voted in their execution. Yet I KNOW for a fact that every one of you would rise up and do what ever you could to stop an animal from being cut up alive. Your all blind, just a bunch of Walking Dead, literally.

Off your meds today?

This is not news, these people are not royalty, who the he** cares? Hillahag is a murdering criminal. Those around her and The Moral Reprobate (Bill), seem to die off mysteriously. Where's the 6 billion that went missing while she was SOS? A little gift for Jr.? And who can forget her infamous line "what difference, at this point, does it make?"

Edward "Ed" Mezvinsky is a former Democrat congressman who represented Iowa's 1st congressional district in the United States House of Representatives for two terms, from 1973 to 1977.

He sat on the House Judiciary Committee that decided the fate of Richard Nixon. He was outspoken saying that Nixon was a crook and a disgrace to politics and the nation and should be impeached.

He and the Clintons were friends and very politically intertwined for many years.

Ed Mezvinsky had an affair with NBC News reporter Marjorie Sue Margolies and later married her after his wife divorced him.
In 1993, Marjorie Margolies-Mezvinsky, then a freshman Democrat in Congress, cast the deciding vote that got President Bill Clinton’s controversial tax package through the House of Representatives. They are now divorced.

In March 2001, Mezvinsky was indicted and later pleaded guilty to 31 of 69 counts of bank fraud, mail fraud, and wire fraud.
Ed Mezvinsky embezzled more than $10 million dollars from people via both a Ponzi scheme and the notorious Nigerian e-mail scams.
He was found guilty and sentenced to 80 months in federal prison.
After serving less than five years in federal prison, he was released in April 2008 and remains on federal probation.
To this day, he still owes $9.4 million in restitution to his victims.

Ed Mezvinsky is Chelsea Clinton's father-in law and the other grandfather. What morals will he and his ex-wife teach this child?

Now Marc and Chelsea are in their early thirties and purchased a 10.5 million dollar NYC apartment. Perhaps BHO will make them share their wealth with me.

At least it will be +1 for the Clinton body count

ROFL

AJ Oliver

Such typical christian grace, humility and charity on display here.

44846GWP

Lol! True that!

Truth2u

Its obvious you have NEVER read the Bible, Oliver and have no idea of its contents.

Tell me where in the Bible we're suppose to be pious and walk around like were in a drug induced commas repeating mantra's ? John the Baptist who was so vocal towards people as yourself that they cut his head off and Jesus said he was a great man, unlike yourself who makes excuses for murderers and adulterers, JOHN told it like it was, he basically called the kings mate a whore, but you would condemn John the Baptist for his message, so why would I surprised at your post. And Jesus made a whip and used it on money changers in the temple, you would of course claim that isn't grace or humility. How about coming into a discussion with something to say instead of bring nothing to the table and presenting it as if your an expert on the subject.

I remember in the 90's the right wingnuts were just horrible to Chelsea. At least now they are targeting an adult, Michelle, and not teens.

Donegan

Hey hypocrite remember Sarah Palins grandkid? You know the ones you hypocrites attacked for being slow? Funny how you forget about your own actions when it serves your purpose.

Truth2u

I remember when the left wingnuts enslaved the blacks, beat them, put them in chains, started the KKK, fought the Republicans from starting the NAACP, fought the Republicans when they voted in the right for Blacks to vote. at least now they hide their racism.

What were you saying BigDog? Maybe if you keep repeating the distortions people will believe it, the blacks ended up believing the Democrats lies so there is hope for your slander.

44846GWP

Perhaps you never heard of President Johnson and the Civil Rights act of 1964? And how he twisted the arms of Southern republican right wing bigots to pass it? Go get a G.E.D.

KnuckleDragger

Maybe you should get yours. Those southern Repubs? By that you mean the former dixiecrat Strom Thurmond? The history books show that nearly all the dixiecrats stayed with the Democrat party. Republicans are judged by the defection of Strom Thurmond. As for the Civil Rights Act, after signing the Act lets not forget Johnson's famous words on Air Force One to a couple of governor's that supported him, "I'll have those n****** voting democratic for the next 200 years."

Or may you prefer this one by the Racist in chief LBJ,

"These Negroes, they're getting pretty uppity these days and that's a problem for us since they've got something now they never had before, the political pull to back up their uppityness. Now we've got to do something about this, we've got to give them a little something, just enough to quiet them down, not enough to make a difference. For if we don't move at all, then their allies will line up against us and there'll be no way of stopping them, we'll lose the filibuster and there'll be no way of putting a brake on all sorts of wild legislation. It'll be Reconstruction all over again."

Blacks can thank the Dems for such things as Jim Crow laws. Shall I go on? Do I need to continue my history lesson or can you look up the information yourself. Fact is the Democrat party are not as pure as the claim to be, they are only good at covering up their flaws.

44846GWP

truth2u: You "remember" blacks being enslaved, in chains, and being beaten, and when the KKK was started? How old are you?! You must be around 175!

sugar

Sorry 44846, but it was the Democrats that held up the civil rights act. Guess you never have heard the saying from LBJ's mouth after he did get the act through. "I'll have those nig*** voting Democrat for the next 200 years." Quit expecting the rest of us to fall in line with the revisionist history you swallowed.

KnuckleDragger

LBJ was vulgar and quite frank about his racism. No matter, he dangled a carrot and he was right, they took it hook line and sinker. They now overwhelmingly vote for Democrats who while they no longer beat them down physically, they keep them enslaved through economic policy.

The Big Dog's back

So you 2 are against the Civil rights bill?

tk

What does all of these comments about Blacks and civil rights have to do with Chelsea having a baby?

bondgirlM

TK I think some one was giving credit for all good things including civil rights at the hands of democrats and someone else just answered to that.

The Big Dog's back

Aaaaaaa no, it was in response to my post about how bad the right wing treated Chelsea in the 90's.

middleclass

It is an announcement of a baby you morons

bondgirlM

Same disrespect I remember for Jenna Bush. Does it only bother liberals when it's the conservatives doing the same thing?

The Big Dog's back

Jenna disrespected herself by being the party girl. Chelsea was a teenager, young teenager.

Dr. Information

One thing for sure. This kid won't have to work hard ever in its lifetime due to its grandparents cash.
