Her husband, former President of the United States Bill Clinton, was honored as Father of the Year at a New York City fundraiser on behalf of Save the Children on Tuesday.
Appropriately enough, daugher Chelsea Clinton was on hand to present her dad with the award, which is given out annually by the National Father’s Day Committee.
“Every day he’s my dad, and I don’t need an award to tell me he’s the best that I ever could have hoped for,” said Chelsea, according to Parade. “But I’m grateful he’s getting the recognition that I, of course, his unapologetically biased daughter, think he’s always deserved.”
The onetime commander in chief himself noted that while there are “a million people who are equally or more deserving” of such an accolade, “you could never have picked anyone happier [for the award], because seeing my daughter still makes me happier than anything else in the world.”
Past honorees include Ronald Reagan, Dick Van Dyke, Al Gore, Colin Powell andShaquille O’Neal.Follow @Infocelebrity on Twitter!
