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.
