Chelsea Clinton has been a mom for almost six months now, and she has yet to lose her new-mom glow!

Bill Clinton and Hillary Clinton's daughter stopped by Live! With Kelly and Michael and couldn't help but gush about her daughter, who is already reaching major milestones! Chelsea dished that baby Charlotte Clinton Mezvinsky is "genuinely sleeping through the night," rolling over and even learning to sit up.

"She is the best thing that has ever happened to me," Chelsea said.

In addition to telling hosts Kelly Ripa and Michael Strahan all about her daughter's accomplishments, she also revealed that she has continued a tradition with Charlotte that her parents started with her: reading the newspaper! The former first daughter dished that she reads the headlines to Charlotte from NPR, the BBC, New York Times and even the Wall Street Journal.

"Right now she agrees with me on everything," she joked, alluding to her daughter's understanding of current events.

She did confess that her parents would read the Arkansas Democrat Gazette, their local newspaper, to her and even participate in mock debates so that she would be engaged with what was going on in the world, which is exactly what she wants to do with her own daughter.

"I hope it's a tradition we can continue," she said.

It turns out that Hillary and Bill are also the typical doting grandparents, eager to help out in any way they can with their first grandchild.

"We all kind of compete to see who's going to read her stories," said Chelsea, 34, in People.

Grandpa Bill is all about the books, Chelsea revealed in her interview. "He loves walking up and down the hallway with her (past our bookshelves) every time pointing out a different book to her and telling her that someday she'll be old enough to read that book herself," Chelsea said. "It's so sweet."


But will this bundle of joy affect Hillary's decision to run in 2016?! Even Chelsea is unsure!

"It's really sweet how my mom is just so clearly happy being a grandma and I know she's going to be a great grandma, whatever other choices she makes in her life," she said.
