Chelsea Clinton announces she is pregnant with her third child 

Chelsea Clinton is pregnant.

It will be the third child for Clinton and her husband Marc Mezvinsky, who married in 2010 and have a 4-year-old daughter Charlotte and 2-year-old son Aidan. 

The former first daughter shared the news on Twitter, writing: ‘Marc and I have loved watching Charlotte be such a wonderful big sister and we’re excited to watch Aidan become a big brother! We cannot wait to meet our newest addition later this summer.’

Clinton, 38, later noted that her parents are ‘thrilled’ to be welcoming a third grandchild.

She had been seen with her mother and Mezvinsky, 41, last week, catching a performance of The Ferryman on Broadway, where they were joined by Barry Diller and Annette de la Renta.

Clinton took the time to respond to well wishers after sharing the news on Twitter. 

John Legend, Cheryl Strayed and Audra McDonald were among the celebrities who congratulated Clinton on social media. 

Some member of the social media platform were noticeably less enamored with Clinton earlier in the day as she tweeted about the importance of vaccinations and hit out at both President Trump and Vice President Pence after the Supreme Court allowed their transgender military ban to go into effect.

One user commented on Clinton’s post by tweeting: ‘Did mommy make you tweet this?’

Clinton responded by writing: ‘Hi Chris – I think the last time my mom made me do something I was 16. She asked me to change clothes (it wasn’t a request) because she thought my skirt was too short (it was).’  

The news comes one month after it was announced that Clinton was working on a new children’s book. 

This will be her fourth book for youngsters.

Her previous titles include She Persisted, She Persisted: 13 American Women Who Changed the World and Start Now! You Can Make a Difference.

Clinton’s upcoming book is about endangered animals and titled Don’t Let Them Disappear. It will be released in April. 

‘In this book, Chelsea Clinton introduces young readers to a selection of endangered animals, sharing what makes them special, and also what threatens them,’ said publisher Penguin of the book. 

‘Taking readers through the course of a day, Don’t Let Them Disappear talks about rhinos, tigers, whales, pandas and more, and provides helpful tips on what we all can do to help prevent these animals from disappearing from our world entirely.’

Clinton had previously revealed that she decided to write books for children because female characters were underrepresented.

‘Even when the characters are animals, they’re someone’s sister or they’re someone’s mother, or they’re someone’s partner or friend,’ she told The Guardian.

‘So from the earliest ages we tell our children that boys are more significant.’

She went on to say: ‘It’s so often the case that our stories are centered around men, told by men, the heroes are men – and so I think it’s hugely important that we make women more visible in the stories in our history that have always existed, but also to imagine and create more female-centered stories moving forward.’ 

In that same interview, Clinton also spoke about how her childhood has shaped her life. 

‘For me, maybe because I’ve had so much vitriol flung at me for as long as I can literally remember, people saying awful things to me even as a child, I’ve never found it productive, personally, to engage in that way,’ said Clinton. 

‘To retaliate with crass language or insult someone personally – I just don’t think I’m built that way.’

She also spoke about her love for her own parents, but refusal to blindly support their beliefs.

This came as she was discussing Ivanka Trump’s support of her father’s administration as they separated parents and children at the Mexican border.   

‘She’s an adult. She can make the choices for herself. I mean, she’s 36. We are responsible for our choices,’ said Clinton. 

‘In 2008 I was really proud to support my mom – but I disagreed with her fundamentally on a few things, particularly her then opposition to equal marriage rights for LGBTQ Americans. I never defended that position, because it wasn’t what I believed was the right thing to do.’ 

Clinton noted that she and Ivnka, who were once friends, hadnot spoken in a ‘long time’ in that interview. 

There is still no word from Bill or Hillary
