Chelsea was born on February 27, 1980, and it is believed that that was when the adorable photo was taken. As seen from the throwback image, Dorothy Howell, who is Hillary’s mother, was captured sitting on a blue-colored chair while she wore a top and blue vest. She had baby Chelsea in her hands.

Hillary, who was just 32 as at then took a sit on the arm of the chair and wore a bright smile. Hillary’s father, Hugh Rodman, can be spotted in the background of the picture but was partially cut out.


 Reports disclosed that a little while after Hillary uploaded the post, she went down to the hospital where her daughter had Jasper, who is baby number ‘3’ for Chelsea and her partner, Marc Mezvinsky.

“Bill and I are so thrilled”
