Chelsea Clin­ton an­nounced Thursday that she is preg­nant, cas­u­ally drop­ping the news at the end of a con­fer­ence on the em­power­ment of wo­men and girls. As she was con­clud­ing the event, part of the Clin­ton Found­a­tion’s No Ceil­ings pro­jects, in New York City, she an­nounced that she and her hus­band, Marc, were very ex­cited to “have our first child ar­riv­ing later this year.”

“I just hope that I will be as good a mom to my child and hope­fully chil­dren as my mom was to me,” she said.

Hil­lary Clin­ton, sit­ting next to her on the stage, was beam­ing. The former sec­ret­ary of State said she is very “ex­cited” about her grand­child’s im­pend­ing ar­rival, something she’s said she’s wanted for years. Chelsea told Glam­our magazine in Oc­to­ber that her moth­er “asks us about [a baby] every single day,” and that 2014 would be “the Year of the Baby.”

In 2011, when asked what type of grand­moth­er she would be, Hil­lary Clin­ton re­spon­ded: “Prob­ably an un­bear­able one — the kind who is say­ing, ‘Oh, my gosh, I’ll take the child, I’ll do whatever you need to get done.’ “
