From growing up in the White House to attending Stanford and becoming a mom, Chelsea Clinton has had a unique upbringing as well as a unique adulthood. After all, she may become the first EVER two-time First Daughter! Take a look back at some of her most memorable moments — from her dad’s presidency to her mom’s nomination!
As the only child of Bill, 69, and Hillary Clinton, 68, Chelsea Clinton, 36, was born in Little Rock, Arkansas in 1980. And by the time she was 13 she was living in the White House as the First Daughter! However, the Clintons admirably wanted their daughter to have a normal childhood — and for the most part, she did! But of course she was never completely out of the spotlight.
Chelsea ended up attending college at Stanford University where bullet-proof glass was installed in her dorm windows and cameras were placed in the hallways for her safety. But hey, the extra precautions seemed to work as Chelsea’s years at Stanford remained largely out of the public eye.
Chelsea went on to attend Columbia University and University College, Oxford to receive advanced degrees. But in 2010 the former first daughter married investment banker Marc Mezvinsky, 38. Even sweeter, they reportedly first started dating in 2005, and became engaged over Thanksgiving weekend in 2009 — aw! And now, the happy couple have two beautiful children together: their daughter Charlotte, 1, and their newborn son, Aidan, 1 month.
And while Chelsea has always been an active part of her parent’s political campaigns, her mom’s recent nomination for the Democratic presidential nominee is extra special as she’s the first woman ever to receive the honor from one of the two major parties! “I was so proud to vote for my mom in her 2000 Senate race!” Chelsea wrote in a recent article she contributed to on PopSugar.com. “Can’t wait to cast my ballot again for her come November!”
And if Hillary wins, Chelsea will be making history herself as the first ever two-time First Daughter! How cool is that? There’s no question Chelsea has had an interesting life thus far, and we are so excited to see what the future has in store for her and her beautiful fam!
