ROCKED by her parents’ potentially deadly health problems, former first daughter CHELSEA CLINTON has decided to undergo In Vitro Fertilization to have a baby!
“There’s an urgency like never before for Chelsea to give Bill and Hillary a grandchild,” a friend told The ENQUIRER. “She’s absolutely determined to bring a baby into the world in 2013.”
Now, in a dramatic race against time, Chelsea, who turns 33 in February, has given up trying to get pregnant “the old-fashioned way” and is ready to begin IVF treatment with husband Marc Mezvinsky, say sources.
As The ENQUIRER recently reported exclusively, sources say Chelsea’s 65-year-old mom Hillary Clinton was undergoing tests to find out if she has brain cancer after suffering blackouts, headaches and other troubling symptoms. It was a blood clot in her brain that has, doctors say, been treated successfully, with the outgoing Secretary of State returning to work yesterday.
And her father, former president Bill Clinton, has suffered a string of frightening heart problems in recent years. In a candid TV interview last October, Bill, 66, bravely admitted: “I’m determined to live to be a grandfather. But I just think the older you get, the more you want every year to count.”
When Chelsea saw that interview, the source says “she cried and made it a priority to bring him a grandchild. In fact, Chelsea told Marc she’d even like to have twins. She also told a pal, ‘It would be a double blessing. Mom and Dad would be over the moon.’”
Chelsea and investment banker Marc tied the knot in an interfaith ceremony on July 31, 2010. At first, a baby was the last thing on their minds. The ENQUIRER revealed that the couple suffered a rough patch, which led to them briefly living apart only six months after their wedding.
“A lot of it had to do with Marc adjusting to life in the spotlight, but after a rocky start, they got it together,” said an insider. “Now, Chelsea’s ready to give IVF a go and Marc is supporting her decision. They both realize there is a better chance of a multiple birth with this treatment.
“Chelsea is very concerned with her mother’s life-or-death medical crisis and her father’s concerns about dying. So with luck, a birth announcement is just around the corner.”
