Chelsea Clinton gave birth on Friday to a daughter, Charlotte Clinton Mezvinsky.

The baby girl is Chelsea's first child — and the first grandchild of Bill and Hillary Clinton, the former first family. The 34-year-old announced her daughter's arrival in a one-sentence tweet, posted early on Saturday morning at 12:32 a.m.

"Marc and I are full of love, awe and gratitude as we celebrate the birth of our daughter, Charlotte Clinton Mezvinsky," Chelsea's tweet read.

Chelsea, the vice chair of the Clinton Foundation, said during her pregnancy that she and her husband Marc Mezvinsky chose to keep the baby's sex a surprise.

Clinton had the child on Friday, a spokesman, Kamyl Bazbaz, told BuzzFeed.

Bazbaz had no additional details to add.

Earlier in the week, the Clintons' daughter spent thee straight days on stage at the Sheraton Hotel in Midtown Manhattan, where the annual meeting of the Clinton Global Initiative took place. Chelsea, who in recent years has taken a leading role in her family's foundation, participated in multiple panel discussions, lunches, and dinners, and on her feet from Sunday night to Wednesday afternoon.

Chelsea's family did not announce a due date during her pregnancy. But at the time of the conference earlier this week, according to a source close to the Clinton family, Chelsea was already slightly overdue, and expecting the baby any day.

References to the very pregnant Chelsea were a constant refrain at the conference throughout the week. As the tenth-annual CGI meeting closed on Wednesday, Bill Clinton joked about what he called his daughter's "imminent birth."

Clinton first announced that she was expecting her a child at a Clinton Foundation event in April for "No Ceilings," a women and girl's development project that Hillary Clinton started after leaving the State Department last February.

Sitting beside her mother, Chelsea shocked attendees at the Lower Eastside Girls Club that day when she paused at the end of the event to add — almost as an aside — that she had just "one more thing to say very quickly."

"Marc and I are very excited that we have our first child arriving later this year," Chelsea said. Mezvinsky, an investment banker, had slipped into the event through a door toward the back of the room and taken a seat before Chelsea spoke.

The audience applauded, and Hillary flashed a wide smile as her daughter made the announcement. The former first daughter added, "I just hope that I will be as good a mom to my child and, hopefully, children as my mom was to me."
