For the Clintons, 2014 is the year of the baby.

 Chelsea Clinton, the 34-year-old daughter of former President Bill Clinton and ex-Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton, announced Thursday that she and her husband, Marc Mezvinsky, are expecting their first child this fall.

There has been wide speculation about a future baby in the Clinton family. Chelsea Clinton said in an interview with Glamour magazine last year that she and her husband were hoping to start a family soon, calling 2014 "the year of the baby."

"Marc and I are very excited that we have our first child arriving later this year and I certainly feel all the better whether it's a girl or a boy that she or he will grow up in a world with so many strong female leaders," Clinton said in New York, joined by her mother at a Clinton Foundation event on empowering women.

"I just hope I will be as good a mom to my child and hopefully children as my mom was to me," she said.

Chelsea Clinton announced Thursday that she's pregnant and expects to give birth later this year.

Chelsea, 34,  and her mother, Hillary Clinton, made the announcement at an event in New York City, "Girls: A No Ceilings Conversation," sponsored by the Clinton Foundation and Microsoft, Politico reports.

Politico said that her mother "beamed" as Chelsea made the announcement.

The former first lady, secretary of state, and U.S. senator from New York, who is considering another presidential campaign in 2016, said she was "really excited" about becoming a grandmother.

"It makes this work even more important because we've made a lot of progress," Hillary Clinton said. "I want to see us keep moving and certainly for future generations as well so that maybe our grandchild will not have to be worried about some of the things that young women and young men are worried about today."

She later added on Twitter: "My most exciting title yet: Grandmother-To-Be!"

The former president also expressed jubilation about the news on Twitter: "Excited to add a new line to my Twitter bio...grandfather-to-be! @HillaryClinton and I are so happy for Chelsea and Marc!"

After growing up in the public eye as a teenager in the White House, Chelsea Clinton graduated from Stanford University and Columbia University's Mailman School of Public Health and worked in New York for a hedge fund and a management consulting firm.

Chelsea Clinton and Mezvinsky, the son of two former members of Congress, were married in Rhinebeck, N.Y., in July 2010. The former first daughter has balanced a number of work and interests, pursuing a doctorate from Oxford University, where her father was a Rhodes Scholar, while taking a leading role in her family's foundation.

She serves as vice chairwoman of the family foundation, which was renamed the Bill, Hillary & Chelsea Clinton Foundation, and helps direct the organization's humanitarian and philanthropic efforts around the globe. She also serves as a special correspondent for NBC News.
