The normally private former first daughter Chelsea Clinton, 33, revealed that she may soon give her mother, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, the grandchild she’s been waiting for.
“We want, God willing, to start a family. So we decided we were going to make 2014 the Year of the Baby. And please call my mother and tell her that,” Clinton told Glamour magazine in a profile for the November issue. “She asks us about it every single day.”
Hillary Clinton has made no secret that she hopes to enjoy grandchildren, even before she left the high flying life of the nation’s top diplomat earlier this year.
“I will certainly tell you, that’s a title I would be proud to have,” when asked by ABC News’ Reena Ninan about taking on the title “grandma.”
“I’d like to live, I’d like to be a grandfather,” added former President Bill Clinton in 2011. “I would like to have a happy wife and she won’t be unless she’s a grandmother.”
“It’s something she wants more than she wanted to be president,” he added.
Chelsea, who married her longtime boyfriend Marc Mezvinsky in 2010, has been busy in a new role at the global aid foundation established by her father.
And with the title of vice chair of the newly re-named Bill, Hillary & Chelsea Clinton Foundation has come a lot more time in the spotlight for the typically reticent first daughter.
As for her mother’s potential 2016 presidential bid, Clinton would only say, “I’ll support my mother in whatever she does. Always.”
