Former first daughter Chelsea Clinton announced that she and her husband Marc Mezvinsky welcomed a son, Jasper Clinton Mezvinsky, on Monday morning. 

The Arkansas-born children's book author, 39, shared the happy news with her two million Twitter followers at 10:34 am EST.

Baby Jasper is the couple's third child, and will join four-year-old big sister Charlotte and three-year-old brother Aidan.

'This morning we welcomed our son, Jasper Clinton Mezvinsky. We are overflowing with love and gratitude and can't wait to introduce him to his big sister and brother,' the mother-of-three tweeted.

Her mother, former presidential candidate Hillary Clinton, 71, also took to social media to share her delight.

'Sharing some happy news this morning! Bill and I are so thrilled,' she wrote, retweeting Chelsea's tweet.

Former President Bill Clinton, 72, also retweeted Chelsea, writing: 'Hillary and I are overjoyed and grateful to meet our new grandson, Jasper!' 

The family has yet to publish photos of their newest member, though it's unlikely there will be many snaps. Chelsea and Marc are quite private about their family, and Chelsea — who doesn't have a public Instagram account — has shared precious few images of Charlotte and Aidan.

The author and activist, who lived in the White House as a teenager, married Marc Mezvinsky in 2010. The couple had first met in 1993 at a Democratic political retreat, when Chelsea's father Bill was in office as President.

Pennsylvania-native Marc, 41, is an investor and former vice chairman at the venture capital firm Social Capital. His parents, Edward Mezvinsky and Marjorie Margolies,  were both Democratic members of the U.S House of Representatives.

Chelsea and Marc were first confirmed as a couple in 2005. After becoming engaged in 2009, they married in an inter-faith ceremony in July 2010 in New York.

Since the New York-based couple welcomed their two children, Marc is a stay-at-home dad. 

It's fitting that Chelsea shared the news via Twitter, as the couple announced that they were expecting for the third time on the platform in January.

'Marc and I have loved watching Charlotte be such a wonderful big sister and we’re excited to watch Aidan become a big brother. We cannot wait to meet our newest addition later this summer,' she tweeted. 

Chelsea, who works for the Clinton Foundation, was regularly pictured out and about in the lead-up to her due date. 

At celebrations during Pride weekend in New York City earlier this month, the then eight-months pregnant showed no signs of slowing down.

At Pride Live's annual Stonewall Day celebration, she took to the stage in a billowing pink frock to commend activists for fighting back 'against discrimination, intolerance, and indifference.'

'Their spirit and unyielding passion and belief in community continue to inspire and call us to action,' she told the crowd.
