Chelsea Clinton announced yesterday that she is expecting her first child with her husband Marc. While the majority of reactions to this news were positive, ABC took things to a whole other level when Good Morning America host Bianna Golodryga proclaimed that Americans now get to look forward to the birth of "their own royal, or, rather, presidential baby."
CBS had similar rhetoric, although stopped short of equating the birth of Bill and Hillary's first grandchild with the birth of the future King of England. Prince George of Cambridge is third in line to the throne and will become king following the death or abdication of his father, Prince William, Duke of Cambridge. Chelsea Clinton's baby, despite having a former U.S. president and Secretary of State as grandparents, is not assured of any kind of power.
By comparison, George Bush's daughter Jenna Bush Hager's pregnancy announcement was widely ignored by the mainstream media, despite also belonging to a family political dynasty.
Chelsea Clinton's baby is due later this year.
