This news makes you wonder if Hillary, who will be a grandmother by then, is still going to consider running in 2016.
Chelsea, 34, daughter of former President Bill Clinton and ex-Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton, made the announcement on Thursday that she and her hubby, Marc Mezvinsky, are expecting their first child and the baby is due this fall.
“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.
Marc and I are so thrilled to be expecting our first child in the fall! Thank you for all of the kind words!

Hillary Clinton commented, she is “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.”
