Chelsea Clinton Only Taking Some of Hillary's Parenting Advice

Chelsea talks about Hillary Clinton and her grandmotherly parenting advice

A potential run at the presidency hasn't distracted Hillary Clinton from things that really matter — including offering parenting tips to her daughter, Chelsea.

"Er, she definitely gives me advice, some of it I take and some of it I sort of smile and say 'thank you' for," Chelsea admitted to Sky News this month. "I'm sure this is a common thing with new mums with their mothers."

By the sound of it, however, grandma Hillary is more than welcome to help take care of Chelsea's 6-month-old daughter Charlotte.

"I also have to admit that at the moment she's more Charlotte's grandmother to me than anything else," Chelsea added. "It's amazing — watching her read to Charlotte, watching her give Charlotte a bottle, watching her sing to Charlotte."

Amid rampant speculation that Hillary will run for president in 2016, family apparently hasn't taken a back seat.

But family was only one of the reasons Clinton spoke to Sky. She also worked on a report called No Ceilings that traces gender equality over the last 20 years. Having a daughter of her own has made the mission all the more personal, she said.

"I didn't know that I could care any more about gender equality until I became a mum, and until I became the mother of a daughter," she said. "What had been such an imperative to me became all that more visceral, because now it's not just all girls that I'm fighting for — it's also Charlotte."

It's an appropriate project for the daughter of a former first lady, senator and secretary of state who's seemingly ignored any glass ceilings that traditionally limited women to positions of lesser prominence.

Could Chelsea follow those footsteps into politics?

"Absolutely, I'd consider it one day," she said. "Right now I live in a city and a state and a country where I support my elected officials. But if that were to change and if at the same time I were to think that other people could be better advocates for (the issues I care about), then I'd have to ask and answer that question."

Until then, Charlotte and projects like No Ceilings should keep her plenty busy.
