Bill and Hillary Clinton have very strong powers of persuasion. Just ask their daughter, Chelsea – she's feeling the pressure from both of them to have a baby.

The 33-year-old – who recently admitted that she'd like to become a mom in the next year – tells Rachael Ray on Friday's episode of her show that the former president and secretary of state are using strong-arm tactics on her.

"There is completely unapologetic pressure. In private and in public," she admits. "If one of my parents were sitting here, they would tell you without blinking an eye that it would make them the happiest thing on earth if I were to make them grandparents, and they would say it so effusively, and I would feel a bit of pressure."

But the Clintons didn't raise a pushover. Their little girl is standing her ground and will get pregnant when she feels the time is right.



"I want to ensure that my husband and I are in a place in our lives and in our working lives where we can provide that for our children without a doubt," she says.

In a segment in which she answered questions from viewers, the former first daughter also revealed where she had her first kiss. And despite living at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue from the ages of 12 to 20, she didn't lock lips in the rose garden.

"It was not actually in the White House," Clinton admits. "[It was] in the boy who was going to become my boyfriend's basement."

"Mom and Dad just got a little too much information, I think," Ray joked.

Clinton also admitted that when she was a little girl that she was fascinated by space.

"I wanted to be an astronaut," she says. "The first sort of big present I remember getting from Santa Claus was quite a small telescope that I remember going into our backyard with my parents and figuring out how to assemble, and staring at the night sky, just for hours, with both of my parents."
