Break out the bubbly: Chelsea Clinton is gonna be a mommy.
The former First Daughter, 34, announced Thursday that she’s expecting her first child with husband Marc Mezvinsky.
Chelsea made the announcement while speaking at an event in New York City for the Clinton Foundation’s No Ceilings: The Full Participation Project, which seeks to empower women globally.
“Marc and I are very excited that we have our first child arriving later this year,” she said. “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.”
Chelsea and Marc married in 2010.
Clinton has previously spoken of her desire to start a family.
“We want, God willing, to start a family. So we decided to make 2014 the Year of the Baby,” she said. “And please call my mother and tell her that.”
