See the First Photo of Chelsea Clinton’s Newborn Son, Aidan

06/19/2016 at 04:40 PM ET

Shortly after welcoming her second child, Chelsea Clinton is now sharing the first photo of her little son.

The former first daughter, 36, and husband Marc Mezvinsky welcomed Aidan Clinton Mezvinsky, she announced on Twitter Saturday morning.

“Marc and I are overwhelmed with gratitude and love as we celebrate the birth of our son,” she wrote.

On Sunday, Clinton posted the first photo of the trio, writing, “At 7:41 AM Saturday, our family and hearts expanded with Aidan’s arrival. We are blessed.”

Aidan joins 20-month-old big sister Charlotte as the newest member of the Clinton-Mezvinsky family.

Hillary Clinton and former president Bill Clinton , who were in the delivery room with the family, also confirmed the news in a statement:

“We are overjoyed to be grandparents again with the arrival of our grandson, Aidan Clinton Mezvinsky, born on Saturday, June 18, 2016,” the Clintons said.

“We are all over the moon as Chelsea and Marc welcome Charlotte’s little brother to the world and grateful for our many blessings. Chelsea and Aidan are both doing well and enjoying this very special time together.”

The politicians also shared their own photos of Aidan at the hospital.

Clinton announced her pregnancy on Twitter in December, saying “Next summer, Charlotte is going to be a big sister! Feeling very blessed & grateful this holiday season,” alongside a photo of her daughter “reading” the children’s book Big Sisters Are the Best.

“Your dad and I could not be happier for you, Marc and Charlotte,” Clinton’s mom tweeted at the time. “We’re so excited to meet our second grandchild!”

Former President Bill Clinton chimed in on Twitter as well, saying of his only child’s expanding brood, “Christmas comes early! Hillary and I are thrilled for Chelsea, Marc and Charlotte’s growing family in 2016!”

Clinton married investment banker Mezvinsky, 38, in 2010 in Rhinebeck, New York, in front of 400 friends and family after a long courtship. They chose not to find out the sex of their second child before Aidan’s birth — a repeat of their decision with Charlotte.

“He or she will be very lucky to have Charlotte as a big sister, even if she doesn’t quite understand that she’s going to become the big sister,” Clinton told PEOPLE in February.

Added Grandma Hillary, “I think this baby is going to be so lucky to have these two incredible people as his or her parents. That’s what I’m waiting to see.”

And Clinton, who has been open with PEOPLE about wanting to expand her family in the past, has learned that the love she has come to know as a mother has extended not only to her children, but to the rest of her family as well.

“I didn’t know I could care more intensely about anything until I became a mom,” said the former NBC News correspondent. “Somehow I love my husband even more, I love my parents even more.”

Charlotte on

Congrats. But boring.

thorazine on

two dads? Marc has a dad too.

lynn on

wow poor kid– being born into a long line of sleaze One grandpa is a convicted liar who lost his law license because he is a sexual pervert and the other grandpa is serving time after being convicted of political corruption Then his grandma is under TWO FBI CRIMINAL INVESTIGATIONS one for political corruption. And then his own father is also under investigation for influence peddling with the baby’s grandmother–reminds me of the mafia families

Guest on

Congratulations! What a lucky baby boy to have been born into this amazing family. I hope he is ready for regular visits to the White House to visit his Grandma–the President!

Susan Bennett on

With his genes, they might as well have gotten a certificate for a defense attorney to defend him against grand jury investigations at the baby shower.

Karen on

Beautiful picture that speaks volumes. Congrats to the “Clinton Family,” congrats!!

S. Paxton on

I haven’t heard of Marc and didn’t know about him. He seems a nice guy.

Edie on

I always had more respect for Chelsea but after I found out who she married, that respect flew right out the window. She followed right into her mother and father’s footsteps…Mezvinsky’s, a crime family for sure!
A new baby is always a blessing…
#NEVERHILLARY!

Peter on

Yeah it’s called Marc’s family.

Pnut on

How about NOT picking the most popular names on earth? Aiden? Are they Irish? Anyway, I am sure they are lovely parents, and they will be thrilled to have the grandparents over a lot after grandma loses in November.

kate on

It’s amazing how a sweet picture of a newborn and his parents, can bring out the ugly comments. Especially after all the tragedies, that have been reported on here the last two weeks, it is nice to see something happy. Just goes to show what a mean, cruel world we live in.

Irish Jews on

Aiden Mezvinsky? Do parents ever say names out loud before deciding upon them? An Irish Jew? Ha! Hey, I’m actually one myself–there aren’t many of us! A sorority sister of mine named her daughter Leighton Ever. Um, did you say that out loud? It sure sounds like Better “leighton ever,” better late than never. Jesus. The girl has a lifetime excuse for not being on time!

PS: way to recognize the FATHER’s family on FATHER’S DAY… Oops.

Qal on

I think Aiden is a good name!

jay on

Kathy on

Lynn, how about you just zip it. Such a hateful person you are. How do you sleep at night?

Amy on

Sweet family. Bill looks way too thin. Hope he’s ok.

Shay on

Another generation to carry on the family legacies of stealing, lying, murdering, and being a traitor to their country.

stinky on

congrats, nice photos….that is one lucky baby…he will have the best of everything…education etc

Lynette on

I hope they don’t do that ridiculous greeting the public (ala Prince William and Duchess Catherine) when they leave the hospital like they did when Charlotte arrived. That was a little over the top. Congrats on the baby!

Cyndi on

What a beautiful baby boy! Congratulations Chelsea, Mark and Charlotte, President Clinton and Secretary Clinton on this wonderful new addition to your family!

Zon on

Bill looks too thin, he may need to eat more.

anonymous on

Congrats to the Mark family on their new addition.

Susan on

OMG, it looks just like a baby!

PR SCAMS on

Lynette, the difference with this couple and the royal couple is just that….. They are royalty. Although, if you ask me, the Clinton’s seem to think they are the American version of such. They think they are the new “Camelot” of first families. If you ask me, the roayks had THOUSANDS of people waiting to catch a glimpse of them SBD their new baby. They were just following tradition with what is expected of them. They didn’t post tweets and pictures hours after having their babies. They kept it private. Again, they only did the fast greet leaving the hospital out of respect for their admirers/and fellow citizens. If you watch it online fast, you will see how fast it was.
I would never say anything unkind about an innocent baby, however, this
But there ya havr it. family just makes my skin crawl!!!!
But there ya have it. The difference between an elegant family who complies with traditional duties, yet keeps their family lives as private as can be. Then you have this family, who I think believes they are the Kennedy’s/Camelot and throws everything on social media from the second Chelsea was done pee’ing on the pregnancy stick to pics the second Aidsn arrived and was barely cleaned off, the poor lad. Lol I just hope Chelsea allows her and her family the Pleasure of enjoying this time together to adjust….and doesn’t allow her mothers PR team to take advantage of that and make them use the baby and the “happy family” theme to interfere with what should be a private time for this couple to adjust to, as well as Charlotte and Aidan to adjust to as well.

BTE, IM SO SORRY my typing got sloppy toward the end and a sentence was somehow interrupted by another sentence. Typing from my terrible phone, tons of things either gets spelled the way it wants it to or does its own thing. So, I apogize that what I wrote looks terrible in certain areas. Cheers!

VOL on

Agree with someone, hope they don’t use baby for political gain during Election.

Chelseawoof on

Congrats to them!

Lovely family. Congrats!

Qunny on

So happy for the family.

Bill Clinton looks very thin…. Congrats to the family !

oly on

agree, bill looks so thin.

reh1259 on

Nothing is as sickening as a new parent saying they didn’t know what love was until they had a child. That’s just pathetic. Being a parent doesn’t give you some new lease on love you didn’t understand before. Being happy is fine, no need to shame people who have no children by assuming they don’t understand some new level or intensity of love.

Stacy Hackney on

welcome little one

Guest on

Staged photos for her campaign, of course. I’ll puke if they do another hospital steps photo trying to imitate Kate and William. That was so tacky!!

LOL on

Chelsea looks a little angry over her mom’s campaign photographer bursting into her hospital room.

suzy diamond on

NotAnotherClinton on

Yay another Clinton…

Thin Bill on

Bill is so thin because Bill is a vegetarian now.

lynn on

new heir to the Clinton Political corruption family. His grandpa on the dads side is in prison for political corruption. His grandma on his mom’s side is under TWO FBI INVESTIGATIONS one of those FBI criminal investigations is for Political corruption. His grandpa is a convicted liar who lost his law license because he lied about being a sexual pervert predator. His dad and his grandma are also under criminal investigation for influence peddling (all done under Obama administration so they can not scream it is the GOP) . Such a long line of lying political corruption to live up to.

The baby is adorable. Congratulations to the family.

Anytime a child is born, it is a great occasion. I love how her husband is looking at his son in this photo, this is about a baby not the grandparents…thank goodness

Julie on

Another little criminal for the biggest sleezbag family on the planet. I’m sure he will be horrible

Jake on

Who could ever think of abortion when they see a newborn. And, yes a baby does have rights.
All babies are innocent so sweet deserve to be given life all babies.
