Just one day after announcing the birth of her second son, Aidan Clinton Mezvinsky, Chelsea Clinton also shared some of her family’s precious first moments with their newest addition on social media. “At 7:41 AM on Saturday, our family and hearts expanded with Aidan’s arrival. We are blessed,” Clinton tweeted on Father’s Day while giving the world a glimpse at her adorable little boy.
But she wasn’t the only Clinton who took to social media to share the love — both Hillary and Bill Clinton also posted their feelings and photos of their new grandson on Twitter, making it obvious that this Father’s Day was an especially joyous occasion for the Clinton family.
Despite being arguably one of the most powerful families in the country, the Clintons took a brief break from politics and shared with us one of the special moments that make us human. They might be a political powerhouse, but even they aren’t immune to the mighty powers of adorableness that their new grandson exudes. The love in their eyes is obvious, and they were able to capture the precious moment of meeting their grandson (possibly for the first time) that every family hopes to remember for a lifetime.
Whether you love him or hate him, there’s no denying the love in Bill Clinton’s eyes while staring down at his new grandson, swaddled in his arms. The same goes for Hillary, who took a break from her presidential campaign to pour love on her grand baby — you don’t have to support her politically to feel the joy in her heart while holding baby Aidan. She posted her photo on Twitter sans makeup or political tagline, stating that the family was “so grateful.”
Those first few pictures of a newborn don’t require filters or makeup or backdrops, and you don’t have to have expert tips on photographing newborns to capture the perfect moment. The happiness and awe in a family’s eyes are what make those photos of newborns swaddled snugly in a new parent or grandparent’s arms so picture perfect. If you’re due to welcome your own new addition and want to capture those first few introductions as well, take a page from the Clintons’ baby book and just keep it low key. You won’t remember whether your hair was fixed or your nails were done, but you will remember the moment that took your breath away when you met your baby for the first time.
Congratulations to the Clintons on their perfect new addition, and a big high five to Chelsea for dropping the mic when she gave her husband and dad pretty much the most epic Father’s Day present ever.
