Haute 100 NY Update: Hillary Clinton Has Looked Forward To Becoming A Grandmother For Years

Hillary Clinton book

Hillary Clinton will soon be adding a new title added to her already impressive resume, and it’s one that she’s fantasized about for a very long time!

“Now that she’s [Chelsea Clinton] expecting a child of her own, I’m preparing for a new role that I’ve looked forward to for years: grandmother,” the former Secretary of State wrote in her upcoming book, “Hard Choices,” which is set to be released on June 10 by Simon & Schuster.

On Mother’s Day, Clinton released excerpts from her new book, in which she reveals that her number one priority in life has always been raising her daughter. “From the moment I first held Chelsea in my arms in the hospital in Little Rock, I knew my mission in life was to give her every opportunity to thrive,” she explained.

The book also offers a glimpse into Clinton’s relationship with her own mother, Dorothy Howell Rodham, and provides insight into the backstory behind her passing in 2011. “Dorothy Howell Rodham was a fiercely independent woman,” she wrote. “She couldn’t bear the thought of being a burden to anyone. Having her so close became a source of great comfort to me, especially in the difficult period after the end of the 2008 campaign.”
