She was brought on a whistle stop tour of the Clinton Institute on the grounds of the university before posing for photos at the doors of the institute. Ms Clinton elegantly concealed her baby bump in a black dress.
Chelsea announced she was expecting a child with her husband Marc Mezvinsky in April this year. It is the couple's first child.

The UCD Clinton Institute was established after 2001 when the government recommended an institute for American studies be set up here. It was named after the 42nd President of the United States for his work in Ireland, the US and further afield.

The event is part of the Clinton Foundation's No Ceilings: The Full Participation Project, working to advance progress for women and girls around the world.
She also took time to visit the UCD Clinton Institute at University College Dublin, which was established in 2003 and named in honour of her father former US President William Jefferson Clinton, in recognition of his own crucial and personal role, as well as the US Government, Congress and People in the Irish Peace Process.
