2014 is the Year of the Baby

Many new moms have reveal parties to announce baby’s gender to family and friends. Former – and potentially future – First Daughter Chelsea Clinton made her big reveal to a world audience yesterday. She’s pregnant.

The big news, announced during a speech at New York City’s Lower East Side Girls Club, came at the end of a Clinton Foundation event dedicated to empowering young girls. Clinton did not say if she and her husband, Marc Mezvinsky, are having a boy or a girl. But she later tweeted that her due date is sometime this fall.

“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,” she told the young women audience. “So thank you for inspiring me.”

Grandmother-to-be Hillary Clinton connected the announcement to the day’s event also, telling the crowd that she is not only excited for her family but for the future generations of women.

“Obviously we are very excited about what’s happening in our family,” she told the young women. “But we’re also very excited because of what we’re doing that we hope gives confidence and support to so many of you across our country as you make decisions about the lives you want to lead.”

As we at EMA New Moms congratulate Chelsea, we can only wonder what her most trusted brands will be as a new mom. Maybe 2014 can be the year of your brand to grow by finding a way to surprise, inspire and deliver relevant news and solutions to new-moms-to-be like Chelsea?
