'2014 is the year of the baby': Chelsea promises Hillary the grandchild she's been longing for
Former First Daughter Chelsea Clinton has announced that she her husband, Marc Mezvinsky, plan on trying for their first child next year.
The 33-year-old, who has faced much pressure from her parents to start a family, told Glamour magazine while conducting humanitarian work in Africa: '2014 is the year of the baby.'
She added: 'Call my mother and tell her that. She asks [Marc and I] about it every single day.'
Indeed, Hillary Clinton, 65, has made no secret of her desire to be a grandmother.
Speaking in the March 2011 issue of Harper's Bazaar, she admitted that she'd probably be an 'unbearable' grandmother, but she'd 'love' Chelsea to have children.
She said of the suggestion: 'Well, no pressure, because I don't want to be one of those kinds of mothers. But obviously, someday, I'd love it.'
When asked what kind of grandmother she thought she'd be, she added: 'Probably an unbearable one - the kind who is saying, "Oh, my gosh, I'll take the child, I'll do whatever you need to get done."
Chelsea later reassured her mother during a 2012 interview with Vogue, that she was gearing up to start a family 'in a couple of years'.
And now it appears that she and her husband of three years plan on becoming first-time parents next year.
They were recently spotted at the Clinton Global Initiative in New York looking more loved up than ever.
Marc, 35, looked adoringly at his wife as she appeared in a pretty bright orange dress. He once described her as 'the yin to [his] yang'.
The couple, both Stanford University graduates, met when they were teenagers, but didn't start dating until years later in 2005. They tied the knot during a lavish ceremony five years later.
While Marc works as an investment banker in New York, Chelsea, after dabbling in Wall Street, is now fully committed to helping shape her family foundation - and has even put her name on the door.
She has traveled extensively on behalf of the Bill, Hillary & Chelsea Clinton Foundation - previously known as the William J. Clinton Foundation - and serves as vice chair.
She presided over a panel on noncommunicable diseases and announced several philanthropic commitments at the Clinton Global Initiative recently, including efforts to provide clean drinking water and promote the health of women and children in Latin America.
The youngest Clinton has hinted that politics could be in her future.
In an interview with CNN from Rwanda last month, she said she was 'attempting to lead a purposely public life' and that she might consider politics if she thought she could make a difference.
Work aside, she told Glamour that her main ambitions in life are to be 'a good wife, daughter, and friend' and she doesn't 'fundamentally care about making money.'
However, a hefty bank balance came in useful as she and Marc splashed out on a $10.5million, four-bedroom apartment earlier this year.
Their new marital home lays claim to being one of New York's longest apartment - stretching an entire block from 26th Street to 27th Street off Madison Avenue.
