NEW YORK (REUTERS) - Chelsea Clinton announced on Thursday that she is pregnant with the first grandchild of former President Bill Clinton and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.

"Marc and I are very excited that we have our first child arriving later this year," said Ms Clinton, 34, referring to her investment banker husband, Marc Mezvinsky, 36.

Sitting with her mother in side-by-side armchairs on a stage at a New York City event on empowering women, Clinton delivered the news with a broad smile.

The audience at Girls: A No Ceilings Conversation, organised by the Bill, Hillary & Chelsea Clinton Foundation, immediately broke into applause and cheers.
