A great big mazel tov to Chelsea Clinton and Marc Mezvinsky, who announced late last week the impending birth this autumn of an heir to the Clinton dynasty. You may remember their wedding back in the summer of 2010. It was the American equivalent of one of Britain’s royal marriage hullabaloos, and cost, cognoscenti guessed, about three million bucks. But for all its heritage and privilege, Marc and Chelsea’s baby, when it’s born, will be part of a minority — the less than 50 percent of all babies born in this country today whose parents are wed.
Chelsea Clinton and Marc Mezvinsky, Philadelphia’s power couple (except they don’t live in Philadelphia and only one of them is from Philadelphia and he’s actually from Montgomery County), are moving into The Whitman, a condo in the Flatiron District of Manhattan. It’s got 4 bedrooms, 6.5 baths and big, you-are-there views of Madison Square Park. Fortunately for the famous Philly couple, security is tight: Along with a 24-hour doorman, there are locked elevators and private elevator landings.
