The 2056 Democratic presidential frontrunner is on its way.

Chelsea Clinton announced Thursday that she was with child while speaking with her mother at an event sponsored by the Clinton Foundation and Microsoft.

“Marc [Mezvinsky] 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 full of so many strong young female leaders, so thank you for inspiring me and inspiring future generations including the one that we’ll be lucky enough to welcome into our family later this year,” she said, according to Politico. “I just hope that I will be as good a mom to my child … as my mother was to me.” 

Chelsea did not announce the exact due date of her child and it is therefore unknown if its birth will coincide with the year’s second blood moon on October 8.
