Chelsea Clinton Leaves the Hospital with Newborn Son Aidan

06/20/2016 at 05:00 PM ET

Chelsea Clinton is home bound!

The former first daughter, 36, was seen leaving Lenox Hill Hospital in New York City Monday afternoon with newborn son Aidan, who made his debut on Saturday — just in time for Father’s Day.

Aidan is the second child for Clinton and husband of almost six years Marc Mezvinsky, 38. The couple are also parents to 20-month-old daughter Charlotte.

“Marc and I are overwhelmed with gratitude and love as we celebrate the birth of our son,” Clinton wrote on Twitter to announce Aidan’s arrival.

On Monday morning, she tweeted, “Can’t get enough! Thank you everyone for the warm wishes!”

Proud grandparents Hillary and Bill Clinton, who were present in their daughter’s delivery room, released a statement following their first grandson’s birth.

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

Presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Hillary also took to Twitter to express her excitement over her second grandchild.

“What a joy being with our new grandson, Aidan. So grateful,” she wrote alongside a photo of herself and Bill holding and gazing down at the newborn.

“Aidan has made two dads very happy this Father’s Day,” Bill piped in. “Hillary and I are thrilled for Marc and Chelsea!”

In almost every picture of Bill Clinton that I’ve seen lately he always has his mouth hanging open. LOL.

ImALadyToo on

Glad the baby is healthy, and I love the name.

Chelsea on

Congrats to Chelsea and her family.

L on

Happy and precious family time. Nice they’re enjoying all together

Sam on

I think Bill Clinton might have a neurodegenerative disease… My father suffers from dementia and I’ve noticed a lot of similar facial expressions on Bill lately. I’m sure they’ll keep it hush hush and he’ll get the best care there is, but if he is suffering from something I wish they’d say something. There’s no shame in it.

¿Cómo haría ese tipo pa meterselo a semejante vieja tan horrenda?
Seguramente tenía que estar perdido de la perrra.

Nikki, some women don’t care if their husband cheats.

91 degrees out, Grandmom wearing a coat and new father with a sweater on. Why?

Chelsea looks happier and more relaxed this time.

Best wishes to all.

Soho on

Black Irish. They need to cover that shame, lol.

Tootsie on

Wonder if her real father was present for the birth.

Really on

Uh, she’s no Kate Middleton. . . looks like the campaign planned this photo op to resemble Kate and Will. . . what a farce.

brittany on

Just wondering why they are the only family to ever come out of the hospital posing for pictures like they are the royal family of America. They’re not.

Danielle DelBiondo on

Congrats Chelsea.

jeannie on

There is another set of grandparents !! The new baby has their DNA also.

Sue on

Beautiful! Goodluck Chelsea!

she is just SOOOOOOO ugly

Louella on

Yup She tries to copy Kate & Wiiliam’s photo op standing on the stoop outside hospital. LOL Far from the truth! Bill can’t hold his excitement (NOT) yeah wonder if her bio dad, Hubell came by to visit (Lol – Hillary’s ex-lover during her days in Arkansas😱😆😫 This is not worthy news. Who are they anyways! Career Criminals!

Charkene on

Congrats to the new parents and grandparents.

I guess I’m sorry to admit this, but I’m really happy for Bill. I’ve always liked him and I’d probably vote for him again.. Despite his obvious weaknesses for women, he’s decidedly like-able. I like that after open hear surgery he’s lived long enough to see his grandson’s birth. It mattered to him and it makes me happy to see this.

Kathleen on

@guest You mean similar to how Trump has his mouth hanging open like a Neanderthal in every picture? Still using “LOL?”

Kathleen on

So Bill Clinton was IN the delivery room with Chelsea? I understand her husband, her mom, but dad? Ew!

Congrats to the happy couple, big sis Charlotte, and grandparents on their new bundle of joy! I wish nothing but the best for Cheslea and her family. I’ll bet he’s just as adorable as Charlotte!

Erica2 on

bill looks a hot mess what does he have on?..Chelsea and Marc looks so happy…would have been nice to see the other set of grandparents and big sister Charlotte Photographed with aiden …the photos of siblings meeting for the first time are so precious maybe they will share one later

I wonder who told them they should pretend to be royalty, the royal family has so much more class and style than this family.
News flash people, you don’t have to vote for the two criminals running for office with the major parties. The change our country needs is a party that has some common sense and doesn’t try to divide our once solid nation.

Carolyn on

When Aiden is in school and the teacher calls on him 50% of the boys will respond. Overused, boring name.

Marla on

Congratulations to her on her son.

stinky on

Sam: you are making BIG assumptions aren’t you?….probably you are just trying to make the Clintons look bad. Nice try.

Guest on

The Clintons are the real American Royal family and I hope that Hillary wins the Presidency, followed by Chelsea in a few years. These amazing women are equally prepared and worthy of being President!! Congratulations Clinton family!

Marky on

Anonymous, you actually get on a baby site and you have the temerity to say the mother is ugly? That’s your comment here? Why is that even slightly okay? Do people simply have no class anymore? I am no Clinton fan, not of Bill or Hillary, but the truth is Chelsea has been a standup person since she was a child. She endured so much as a teenager, and a young adult, and for whatever reason, people seem to think it’s okay to treat Chelsea like dirt because of her parents’ behavior. Can’t imagine anyone with the slightest maturity thinks that’s okay.

Algore on

Why does one never see the paternal grandparents in these photo-ops? After all, a convicted felon (31 counts of fraud) is no more disgraceful than perjuring one’s self in a sexual harassment suit and getting his ass impeached, not to mentioned boinking the daughter of a presidential candidate in the Map Room of the White House.

Lana on

Mazel Tov! Happiness, peace and long healthy life to Aidan, Marc and Chelsea!

Paulette Anctil on

Nikki if you have nothing nice to say don’t say it at all. Chelsea and Hillary are both very aware as to what happen .Forgiveness is a virtue for some people. Congratulation Chelsea you are classy .

Brooke on

I love Bill Clinton but it appears that Tailors are not a perk of post presidential lide

Nebali on

The name is a little overdone (also, is Chelsea a SATC fan?) but I’m happy for her.

As for Bill, to the other commentor who suggested he may have some kind of disease, it’s possible but he’s also been on a very strict diet since his heart issues and he might not be getting enough nutrients. I’m sure whatever he’s eating is doctor-supervised but sometimes doctors are a little TOO cautious. IIRC Bill’s vegan now and unless he takes a ton of supplements, eat things that are fortified, or enjoys vegan sources of protein, he might not be getting all he needs and could be physically weak. Hillary and Chelsea look to be in the picture of health.

Hey, look at that, Bill saved one of his blazers from the 1990s
