Sharing a sweet black-and-white photo of her daughter Charlotte, born September 2014, reading Big Sisters are the Best, Chelsea wrote on Facebook:
“Next summer, Charlotte is going to be a big sister! We are feeling particularly blessed and grateful this holiday season. Being Charlotte’s parents has been the most joyous, meaningful and loving experience of our lives and we are very excited about growing our family in the new year.”
Motherhood has been a life-changing experience for Clinton, who told Ellen Degeneres in October how much it has made her appreciate her own mom:
“I didn’t know that I could love and admire and respect my mom anymore until I became a mom and couldn’t believe any more in her as the right leader for the country I want my daughter to grow up in,” Chelsea said at the time, “but I do because she has been working to ensure that every woman should get the chance to grow up to be you or to grow up and be the next Hillary Clinton.”
After the big announcement, Bill and Hillary spoke out on social media to express their excitement:
Your dad and I could not be happier for you, Marc, and Charlotte. We’re so excited to meet our second grandchild! -H https://t.co/hgTr07HBlr

While we don’t yet know if the happy couple are expecting a girl or a boy, one thing’s for sure: 2016 is going to be a very big year for the Clinton/Mezvinsky family!
