Chelsea Clinton Welcomes a Baby Girl and Gives Her a Classy Name

Chelsea Clinton sure has an enthusiastic little peanut. She and husband Marc Mezvinsky have just welcomed their new baby girl into the world -- four days before her due date.

Bill and Hillary's daughter, who famously decided to embrace what she called one of life's few mysteries and not find out their baby's gender, made an official announcement via Twitter early Saturday morning. And I've got to say, I love the sweet, classic, timeless name they gave their first lovebug.


Chelsea's tweet reads:

Aww, Charlotte! I immediately think of writer Charlotte Bronte or the beautiful Charlotte Casiraghi of Monaco. And I'd be lying if I didn't admit that an image of Charlotte from Sex and the City also popped into my head. All great Charlotte's.

One of the coolest facts about this name is that, even though it sounds like one you'd give your girly-girl, it actually means the "feminine diminutive form of Charles," and Charles means "full-grown, a man." Interesting!

Charlotte is the couple's first child, as well as the first grandchild for Bill and Hillary, who we're sure are going to dote on their little princess. In an interview she gave prior to the birth, the 34-year-old attorney said it felt like the right time to welcome a baby into the world because there are so many "strong, young female leaders."

No doubt Charlotte is going to have quite a few fantastic role models in life and grow up to, perhaps, be a future president.

Do you like the name Charlotte?
