It's official: The Clinton bloodline will be extended for at least another generation. At an event for the Clinton Foundation's "No Ceilings: The Full Participation" project on Thursday, Chelsea Clinton announced that she and her husband, hedge fund trader Marc Mezvinsky, are expecting their first child. 

The announcement came as the event was wrapping up, with the former First Daughter saying, "I have one more thing to say very quickly—I just want to thank all of you for being such an inspiration to us and to me in particular. Marc and I are very excited that we have our first child arriving later this year."


The news was "really exciting" for former Secretary of State and Grandmother-to-be Hillary Clinton, about whom Chelsea said "I just hope that I will be as good a mom to my child and hopefully children as my mom was to me."

Terry McAuliffe has begun fundraising for the 2056 election cycle.
