It's been some kind of year for Chelsea Clinton. First, she announced that she and husband Marc Mezvinsky are expecting their first child. And, now the former first daughter gets to officially call herself an Oxford grad.
The 34-year-old Clinton received her doctorate degree in international relations from the prestigious university yesterday, with both parents in attendance. That makes four degrees for the public health advocate, but who's counting? Well, it turns out Bill is. "She'll have as many as her parents do — combined," the former president joked when he visited Jimmy Kimmel Live last month.
As it turns out, Bill isn't the only Clinton opening up about Chelsea. In an exclusive excerpt from her upcoming book "Hard Choices" courtesy of Vogue, Hillary reflects on her role as Chelsea's mother. "From the moment I first held Chelsea in my arms in the hospital in Little Rock, I knew my mission in life was to give her every opportunity to thrive," she writes. "As she’s grown up and stepped out into the world in her own right, my responsibilities have changed."
Chelsea's child isn't due until the fall, but from sound of it, her mother is more than ready to be a grandma. "Now that she’s expecting a child of her own, I’m preparing for a new role that I’ve looked forward to for years: grandmother," she former Secretary of State wrote. "And I’ve found myself thinking a lot about my relationship with my own mom, as an adult as well as in childhood, and what lessons I learned from her."
Clearly, the Clinton women have this whole "mother" thing down pat, so it looks like Chelsea's future child is in good hands. A very happy mother's day to the Clintons indeed!
