Hillary Clinton visited her daughter Chelsea in the hospital for the third day in a row on Wednesday, shortly after sharing a touching Facebook post about her daughter and her own parents in honor of the birth of Hillary’s third grandchild.
The former Secretary of State, 71, uploaded a photo of her happily watching on as her mother held Chelsea as a newborn baby.
‘Thinking of this photo of my mother holding baby Chelsea, with my dad looking on over her shoulder, as Chelsea this week has just welcomed her third child, Jasper,’ she wrote. ‘Bill and I are extraordinarily proud grandparents, just like they were.’

The family photo was taken in 1980, soon after Chelsea was born on February 27 of that year.
Hillary’s mother Dorothy Howell is pictured center, sitting on a blue chair in a colorful top and blue vest. She’s holding a swaddled Chelsea in her arms, while Hillary’s dad Hugh Rodham stands in the background, partially cut out of the photo.
Hillary, then 32, sits on the arm of the chair and smiles as she looks on.
Shortly after uploading the snap, Hillary darted over to Lenox Hill Hospital on Manhattan’s Upper East Side, where her daughter Chelsea, 39, has been since giving birth to her third son, Jasper, on Monday morning.
This is the third child for Chelsea and husband Marc Mezvinsky, 41.
The proud grandmother was surprisingly bundled up for a warm New York City day, dressed in a white jacket worn over a black top and pants.

Her husband, former President Bill Clinton, 72, wasn’t with her when she got out of a black SUV to head into the building.
This is the third day in a row that Hillary has stopped in to check on her daughter and new grandson.
On Tuesday, she was photographed walking into the hospital, beaming as she was seen exiting an SUV shortly after lunchtime.

Grandpa sneakers? A few hours after Hillary arrived at the hospital, her husband Bill was seen arriving in a pair of red and gray sports shoes with very chunky soles
Though she arrived alone, just hours later, former President Clinton arrived at the hospital in a blacked-out SUV, wearing a pair of chunky-soled sneakers and a gray suit jacket.
Just like his wife, Bill couldn’t seem to wipe the smile off his face as he made his way into the building to see his family, pausing for a few minutes to sign autographs and wave at the waiting photographers.
Chelsea shared the happy news of the family’s newest addition on Twitter on Monday morning.
‘This morning we welcomed our son, Jasper Clinton Mezvinsky. We are overflowing with love and gratitude and can’t wait to introduce him to his big sister and brother,’ the mother-of-three wrote at 10:34am EST.
Her mother also took to social media to share her delight, writing: ‘Sharing some happy news this morning! Bill and I are so thrilled.’
Happy as can be: Both grandparents had big smiles on their faces as they arrived at the hospital, no doubt thrilled to be visiting their daughter and grandson once again

Anything for the fans: The former president paused briefly outside in order to sign an autograph for someone
Bill also retweeted Chelsea, writing: ‘Hillary and I are overjoyed and grateful to meet our new grandson, Jasper!’
The proud grandparents made a same-day visit to the hospital on Monday, and then returned again just hours later to spend more time with their baby grandson, with both choosing very casual ensembles for the occasion.
The former first lady was photographed exiting a black SUV, wearing a huge smile on her face as she made the short walk inside.
She was dressed in black pants and a blue and white patterned jacket, which she accessorized with a pair of earrings and gray slip-on sneakers.
Hillary walked confidently into the hospital by herself, shaking a woman’s hand before going through the doors.
A few hours later, Bill arrived on the scene in a near-identical vehicle – and a very similar ensemble – wearing a pair of dark trousers and a matching shirt, which he wore with a pale gray suit jacket.

He then completed the low-key look with a pair of chunky dad-style sneakers that had very chunky, supportive soles, as well as several red flashes along the otherwise-gray design.
A smiling Bill also held his iPhone in his hand as he strolled into Lenox Hill Hospital, and wore a pair of rimless glasses.
The pair were also full of smiles when they arrived at the hospital shortly after Jasper’s birth, this time making the trip to see their daughter together.
The former president and former Secretary of State grinned with excitement as arrived, smiling to photographers and passerby as they made their way. They were still smiling when they left later in the evening, waving at admirers.
‘Everybody’s good,’ they told photographers outside.

This is the third child for Chelsea and her husband, who share four-year-old daughter Charlotte and three-year-old son Aidan.
The family has yet to publish photos of their newest member, though it’s unlikely there will be many snaps. Chelsea and Marc are quite private about their family, and Chelsea — who doesn’t have a public Instagram account — has shared precious few images of Charlotte and Aidan.
The author and activist, who lived in the White House as a teenager, married Marc Mezvinsky in 2010. The couple had first met in 1993 at a Democratic political retreat, when Chelsea’s father Bill was in office as President.
Pennsylvania-native Marc is an investor and former vice chairman at the venture capital firm Social Capital. His parents, Edward Mezvinsky and Marjorie Margolies, were both Democratic members of the U.S House of Representatives.
Since the New York-based couple welcomed their two children, Marc is a stay-at-home dad.
