Presidential hopeful Hillary Clinton is a grandmother twice over.

Chelsea Clinton on Friday announced the arrival of her second child, son Aidan, on Twitter, saying she and her husband were “overwhelmed with gratitude and love.”

The 36-year-old daughter of former President Bill Clinton and current presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton lives in New York with her Jewish husband, hedge fund manager Marc Mezvinsky.

She and Mezvinsky have a 20-month-year-old daughter named Charlotte.

Mezvinsky is the son of former US Rep. Edward Mezvinsky and former US Rep. Marjorie Margolies-Mezvinsky.

Clinton retweeted her daughter’s message shortly after the announcement.

Clinton and Mezvinsky were married in late July 2010 under a traditional huppah, or wedding canopy, and recited the traditional sheva brachot, or seven wedding blessings. A rabbi and a Methodist minister officiated at the wedding. The couple signed a ketubah, or Jewish marriage contract.

Aidan is the second baby to be born to the child of a presidential candidate this year.

In March, presumptive Republican nominee Donald Trump’s daughter Ivanka gave birth to her third child, son Theodore James, with her Jewish husband Jared Kushner. Ivanka is a convert to Judaism.
