If it's up to former President Bill Clinton, he'd be called "First Laddie" if Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton wins the White House, former first daughter Chelsea says.

In an interview aired Thursday on NBC's "Today" show, Chelsea Clinton said her dad is proud of his Irish roots.

"He likes to hearken back to his kind of Irish roots, so I think he'd love to be called 'first laddie'" she said, adding it's unlikely the moniker will catch on.

"So I'm definitely voting for 'first gentleman,'" she said.

The mom of two also talked about the chance to introduce her own mother at the Democratic National Convention on Thursday night.

"This election is so important to me, because I'm now a mom," Chelsea Clinton said. "And as proud as I am of my mom, this election to me is fundamentally about my children, about Charlotte and Aidan."

"And I couldn't imagine a better president for them. I couldn't imagine a better grandmother for them, either. And so I think just standing there, thinking about my children and looking at my mom, I think it's going to be overwhelming."

"I just hope that people understand even a little more when I'm done than when I started about why I love her so much and admire her so much," she added.

She also acknowledged the damaging portrait of her mother painted at last week's Republican National Convention will be on her mind.

"That's not the person that I know," she said of negative portrayals by GOP nominee Donald Trump, who's nicknamed his rival "crooked Hillary," and the chant of GOP delegates to "lock her up."

"That's not the person that I grew up with, that I'm so proud to stand beside and to introduce here in Philadelphia," she said, noting however, "She's tough and she can take whatever people say about her."

"I think it's clear that Mr. Trump is running his campaign and saying what he thinks is important in this election," added Chelsea Clinton – who is a friend of Ivanka Trump, eldest daughter of the GOP nominee.

"I think what we're seeing here in Philadelphia is a very strong contrast to that. And my mother's not engaging in divisive, bigoted rhetoric."
