Former First Daughter Chelsea Clinton announced that she and her husband, Marc Mezvinsky, are expecting their first child during a Clinton Foundation event devoted to empowering young women at New York’s Lower East Side Girls Club on April 17.
Chelsea Clinton, 34, told guests at the event: “Marc and I are very excited that we have our first child arriving later this year.”
“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, young female leaders,” she added.

“I just hope that I will be as good a mom to my child and hopefully children as my mom was to me.”
It appears that Chelsea Clinton’s pregnancy is going along quite smoothly, and by the looks of her giant bump she must be due in the very early part of fall 2014.
Chelsea Clinton and Marc Mezvinsky, who currently live in New York City, have yet to tell the public what the sex of the baby is, but we know they will be happy with whatever they are gifted with.
Now seven-month pregnant, Chelsea Clinton’s due date would be roughly late October to early November.

So when can we expect Chelsea Clinton’s first child to arrive? Chelsea Clinton hasn’t yet announced a due date, but based on her announcement, we can speculate a time frame.
She announced her pregnancy on April 17. Typically parents wait at least two months before announcing a pregnancy to friends and family. If that’s the case with Chelsea Clinton, then her due date would be roughly late October to early November.

“I certainly feel all the better whether it’s a girl or a boy that she or he will grow up in a world full of so many strong, young female leaders,” she told the audience full of young women.
“So thank you for inspiring me.”
Hillary Clinton connected the announcement to the focus of the day’s event, telling the crowd that she is not only excited for her family but for the future generations who may not have to face the same glass ceilings as she did.
“Obviously we are very excited about what’s happening in our family,” Hillary Clinton told the young women.
“But we’re also very excited because of what we’re doing that we hope gives confidence and support to so many of you across our country as you make decisions about the lives you want to lead and try to make sure there are no ceilings that are stopping you from going as far and as high and as fast as you can.”
Chelsea’s parents, Bill and Hillary Clinton, both responded on Twitter shortly after the announcement Thursday afternoon.
