Clinton and her husband reportedly did not know the gender of their baby until she was born. Ms. Clinton announced her pregnancy alongside her mother at a benefit on the Lower East Side of Manhattan in April.
"I certainly feel all the better whether it's a girl or a boy that they'll grow up in a world with so many strong female leaders," Ms. Clinton said at that event.
"I want them to get up every day and look at the world with wonder and reverence," he said. "I want them to respect everyone they meet, whatever their background."
