“We are all over the moon as Chelsea and Marc welcome Charlotte’s little brother to the world and grateful for our many blessings,” they added. “Chelsea and Aidan are both doing well and enjoying this very special time together.”
Chelsea, 36, had announced via Twitter a short time earlier that she and husband Marc Mezvinsky had become parents to a baby boy.
“Marc and I are overwhelmed with gratitude and love as we celebrate the birth of our son,” she tweeted.
The former first daughter delivered at Lenox Hill Hospital on Manhattan’s Upper East Side.
She gave birth to her first child, daughter Charlotte Clinton Mezvinsky, in 2014.
