"You know, I told her when she was a little girl that it would suit me if she didn't move out until she was 25 and didn't get married until she was 35," Clinton said.    (AP Photo/Elise Amendola)

(Newser) – Bill Clinton's going to have to steer clear of cheeseburgers if he wants to walk his daughter down the aisle at her wedding this summer. Chelsea "doesn't think I'm in shape," he told ABC. "You know she told me the other day, she said, ‘Dad the only thing you gotta do is walk me down the aisle and you gotta look good.’ So I said, ‘Well, what's your definition?’ And she said: ‘Oh, about 15 pounds.’ So I'm about halfway home."

Clinton, speaking after a budget deficit conference in the capital, went on to praise his only child's fiancee, Marc Mezvinsky. "I'm really fortunate," said Clinton. "I really like my future son-in-law a lot and I admire him a great deal. He’s a fine human being so Hillary and I are delighted."
