The couple announced they were expecting their first child back in April. “I certainly feel all the better whether it’s a girl or a boy that she or he will grow up in world filled with so many strong female leaders,” Chelsea said in a speech at a Clinton Foundation event empowering female youths. Mom, Hillary Clinton, was by her side.

That the baby was a girl was a surprise for new parents Chelsea and Marc. Chelsea recently commented that they had decided not to find out the sex of their baby. “There are so few mysteries in life. . .in which any answer is a happy one,” she told CNN’s Fareed Zakaria.

In addition to being the former First Daughter, Chelsea is the the vice chairperson of the Bill, Hillary & Chelsea Clinton Foundation. She and Marc were married in 2010 and currently live in New York.

Congrats to the family!
