Chelsea Clinton, the daughter to political powerhouse couple Bill and Hillary Clinton, says her parents are doing some lobbying at home — they want to be grandparents.
The former First Daughter appears on Rachael Ray on Friday to talk about the Clinton Foundation’s Alliance for a Healthier Generation but of course, the newly-married 33-year-old is being asked, “When are you having a baby?”
“My husband has 10 brothers and sisters, so we have 18, almost 19, nieces and nephews, so there’s not pressure from that side of the family,” she tells Rachael. “But from my parents there is completely unapologetic pressure. In private and in public. If one of my parents were sitting here, they would tell you without blinking an eye that it would make them the happiest thing on earth if I were to make them grandparents, and they would say it so effusively, and I would feel a little bit of pressure.”
Chelsea wants to get pregnant “in our not-too-distant future,” but for the moment they’re both working really hard.
Chelsea, who is the Clintons only child, adds, “I never, ever doubted that I was the most important person in my parents’ lives, and I want to ensure that my husband and I are in a place in our lives and in our working lives where we can provide that for our children without a doubt.”
