Chelsea Clinton Welcomes Third Child, Son, Jasper

Congrats to Former First Daughter Chelsea Clinton and her husband Mark Mezvinsky on the birth of their third child, a baby boy!

“This morning we welcomed our son, Jasper Clinton Mezvinsky,” the philanthropist and children’s book author tweeted. “We are overflowing with love and gratitude and can’t wait to introduce him to his big sister and brother.”

The family’s new addition joins two older siblings: big brother Aidan, 3, and sister Charlotte, 4½.

Her mom, former US Secretary of State and former First Lady, Hillary Clinton, shared the news on Twitter, tweeting, ” “Sharing some happy news this morning! Bill and I are so thrilled.”

Chelsea has said that motherhood sparked her interest to become a children’s book author.

“[My kids] love being read to and talking about what they’re reading in books. Particularly for young readers, books are not only a way to help break down and communicate ideas [but] stories of real empowerment,” she told PEOPLE this past October.

Her latest children’s release, “Don’t Let Them Disappear is about endangered animals and “provides helpful tips on what we all can do to help prevent these animals from disappearing from our world entirely,” according to the book’s description.

Congratulations to former First Daughter Chelsea Clinton and her husband

Marc Mezvinsky on expecting their third child.

Chelsea Clinton Baited to Criticize her Friend Ivanka Trump’s Dad; She Snatched it

chelsea and ivanka

Remember when we posted about how our Bellyitch Bumpwatch alums Chelsea Clinton and Ivanka Trump were still good friends despite the fact that their respective parents were going against each other head to head for the job of US President?

Well, it looks like things may start to get personal.

During a Facebook Live event on Tuesday, July 25, Glamour Editor in Chief Cindi Leiv pinned Chelsea down on her friendship with Ivanka and tested it a bit, egging her on to criticize Ivanka’s dad Donald Trump, CBS News reports.

“So you and Ivanka are friendly, I know,” Leiv asked. “if you got to ask her a question about how her father would do that, what would it be?”

Chelsea had a quick answer! “It would be that question: ‘How would your father do that?'”

“Given it’s not something that he has spoken about, there are no policies on any of those fronts that you just mentioned on his website — not last week, not this week,” she said. “So I think the ‘how’ question is super important. In politics as it is in life.”

“So it really matters to me that my mom in this election consistently has told you how she is going to do everything,” Clinton continued. “Whether that’s on gun control or protecting a woman’s right to choose or any of the things we’ve talked about. She also tells you how she’s going to pay for it.”

“It’s something I hope would matter to that traditional Republican voter,” the former first daughter said, before adding that Trump’s plans could add trillions of dollars to the national debt. “Social progress should also come with social responsibility and fiscal responsibility.”

Game on!

Last week, Ivanka gave an amazing speech that trumpeted the importance of women’s rights and options. She didn’t announce that she was a Republican and a lot of Democrats and Independents actually resonated and agreed with Ivanka. Some asked why she wasn’t the one running for President instead of her dad.

Watch Ivanka’s powerful and impassioned speech, the best of the convention, in our opinion, here.

Actually, couldn’t you see an Ivanka Trump v. Chelsea Clinton run in the future?

And all this is just in time for the 2016, US general election presidential campaigning to kick into overdrive, grandma Hillary Clinton can campaign that the White House needs more babies. Ha! The other guys and Carly Fiorina may disagree.

Chelsea Clinton Shares Daughter’s Fave Book

When it comes to family time, Chelsea Clinton always makes it a priority.

Whether it’s supporting mom Hillary Clinton on the campaign trail or helping Former President Bill Clinton with the Clinton Initiative Project, Chelsea likes to keep her loved ones close.

So it should come as no surprise that when the author and activist celebrated her daughter’s first birthday over the weekend, it was family that was at the center of the fun.

“It was great. We had lots of balloons,” she told E! News exclusively. “[Charlotte] loves balloons, lots of bubbles and lots of books.”

Bill added, “The whole thing was a hoot. Oh my gosh, she is unbelievable.”

On Saturday evening, Chelsea even shared a candid snapshot of some mommy-daughter time that included a special story before bed. It’s the simple, but oh-so-sweet moments that Chelsea cherishes every day.

“It was actually “Where Is the Green Sheep?,” which at the moment is one of her favorite books,” the proud mom explained. “She loves to read, which as a mom just makes me so happy.”

In between parenting duties, the author of “It’s Your World: Get Informed, Get Inspired & Get Going!” continues to make time to support the Clinton Global Initiative. As the nonprofit celebrates its 10-year anniversary, E! News’ Maria Menounos couldn’t help but ask about some of the many accomplishments the foundation has made.  

 

“One of the things I am most proud of is all the work the Haiti Action Network has done,” Chelsea explained. “We’re talking about the five million trees that have been planted, tens of thousands of women that have been educated, the 50 schools that now have solar energy.”

Bill added, “I believe the most important thing is we’ve changed the nature of philanthropy. For example, two years ago the Starkey Hearing Aid Foundation was giving out 50,000 hearing aids a year. This year, they are already over 200,000.”

And while the next few months may be extra busy for the Clintons—Decision 2016 anyone?—it certainly won’t stop the family from making a difference.

“I hope in the next 10 years the number of people that we’ve helped will be in the billions,” Bill shared.

Chelsea Clinton & Reese Witherspoon cover fashion magazines

Two of the celeb  ladies we’ve covered lately looked amazing covering top fashion magazine’s respective May issue. 
In Elle, First Daughter talks about life before and after giving birth to daughter Charlotte with husband of 4-years Marc Mezvinsky.
“Marc and I are like, ‘What did we do before we were  parents?'”said Clinton who looked really a woman who just gave birth six months ago. ” My whole life is reoriented around my daughter in the most blessed sense. I now understand—this is something else that Marc and I talk about all the time—all of the enthusiastic, bombastically spectacular, wonderful things people say about their children, because we also feel and think all those things about Charlotte—that she is just the most remarkable little bubbly, perfect, chunky monkey creature ever.”

You can read the rest of the interview in the digital copy or in magazines on the racks.
