(Newser) – Hillary and Chelsea Clinton appeared on Good Morning America Tuesday to promote their new book, The Book of Gutsy Women, and host Amy Robach wrapped up the interview with a question playing on the book's title, per Politico and CNN. "Can I ask you, what's the gutsiest thing you've ever done?" Robach asked Hillary Clinton, which caused the former secretary of state to pause for just a split second, then reveal: "Ah, boy, I think the gutsiest thing I've ever done—well, personally, make the decision to stay in my marriage."

Of course, Clinton ranked running for president as the gutsiest thing she's done "publicly" and "politically," as well as her determination to "keep going. Just get up every day and keep going." When asked for her own answer, Chelsea seemed momentarily thrown, responding, "Oh, goodness, I think I'm so overwhelmed by my mother's answer that I'm a bit out of words." She then recovered and noted, "I'm just so proud to be her daughter. My most important identity now is as my three kids' mom. ... I'm just going to try to be gutsy every day." Watch the interview here, in which Hillary also gets into, yes, her emails. (Read more Hillary Clinton stories.)
