In case you missed it one of the millions of times it’s probably floated down your timeline at this point, Chelsea Clinton is pregnant.

Clinton announced she was pregnant with her first child on Thursday while speaking at the Lower Eastside Girls Club in New York City as part of the “No Ceilings Conversation” series.

Clinton and husband Marc Mezvinsky are expecting the baby “later this year,” she said.

I saw the post float down my timeline from various news outlets, and I also paid attention to the reaction to the news. There were people on my timeline who wanted to know why this is news, and I had basically the same question.

What is our obsession with ‘celebrity’ culture, and why has this become a large part of what is considered ‘news’ today?
