Chelsea Clinton and Hubby Marc Mezvinsky Welcome Baby Girl

It looks like there’s a new Clinton in town!

“At 7:03 PM on September 26th, we finally met Charlotte. We’re in love,” former First Daughter Chelsea Clinton tweeted early Saturday morning, announcing the birth of her daughter Charlotte Clinton Mezvinsky. Charlotte is the first-born of Chelsea and her husband Marc Mezvinsky, and the first grandchild of former President Bill Clinton and former Secretary of State Hilary Rodham Clinton.

Chelsea announced her pregnancy in April, and the baby’s arrival has been the talk of the town ever since, especially with Bill and Hilary.

When asked what she wanted for her grandchild during an interview earlier this year, Hilary said, “I want a healthy, happy child.”

“Be prepared to fall completely in love…get ready, also, to be the lowest person in the pecking order in your family,” joked former President George W. Bush with Bill at the Clinton/Bush Leadership Conference.

President Obama advised as well, announcing during a speech this week that if Chelsea went into labor while he spoke, she “has [his] motorcade and will be able to navigate traffic.”

Although the new parents never gave any indication as to when the due date was, Bill did slip up earlier this week and mention that the baby was expected to arrive before Oct. 1. The gender of the baby remained a surprise until the birth, however, as Chelsea said that there are “so few mysteries in life…in which any answer is a happy one,” in an interview with CNN’s Fareed Zakaria.

Charlotte’s arrival has undoubtedly added fuel to discussions about Hilary’s potential presidential campaign for 2016. Though there has been much debate about whether Hilary’s new grandchild will affect her decision to run – and whether it’s even appropriate to ask a woman such a question – Hilary has remained mum about her interest in being the first female President, actually diverting to the topic of being a grandmother when asked about her political plans.

Hopefully we’ll have plenty more pictures of Charlotte to keep us busy while we wait for Hilary’s decision.
