'I Am So Proud To Be My Parents' Daughter' Says Chelsea Clinton When Asked About Paternity

LOS ANGELES ( — "I am so proud to be my parents' daughter," said Chelsea Clinton in responding to a man who recently broached the issue of paternity at a book-signing event.

Clinton has been on a 20-city tour to promote her first published book, "It's Your World: Get Informed, Get Inspired & Get Going!"

"Has your mother ever told you that you're the daughter of Webb Hubbell, and not Bill Clinton?" asked the man who Clinton had addressed as Robert.

After Clinton responded, the man then said: "One more quick question about this book right here," to which she responded, "Sure."

"You say it is targeted towards teenage girls," he said, while she responded: "It's targeted actually to kids, girls and boys."

The man continued: "Would you say that Bill Clinton also targets teenage girls?"

"I would say my book is really resonating with kids," Clinton said.

The questions were posed Friday at the book signing event in Austin, Texas.

The 35-year-old Clinton visited the Southland earlier this month.

She said while here that she choose to write the book geared for ages 10 to 14 because, she said, "that's really the age I was when I felt like I could make a difference."
